>This is something that I too have never understood. Why, when you pay $70 for a room do you get free internet, but when you pay $300 you get charged $15-$20 per day.
In February I was in Houston at the Westin. There I had to pay for internet in my room, but I could go to the lobby and get it free.
From an Accounting point of view I think that charging simply upsets guests more than its worth.
