Thread: Wireless/Internet in hotels running list

  1. #1

    Wireless/Internet in hotels running list

    Thought it might be helpful for other hobbyists to keep a running list of which hotels have free internet in the rooms and/or free wireless in the lobby for those who travel to Montreal also on business. Here's what I can contribute to the best of my recollection:

    Hyatt: No wireless, paid connection in rooms
    Marriott Chateau Champlain: Free wireless in lobby, paid connection in rooms (although wireless signal is strong enough to connect to on lower level hotel floors)
    Loews Hotel Vogue: Free wireless in lobby, paid connection in rooms (wireless signal is not strong enough to connect to on even second level of hotel)

    Now let's add to this list!

    Hotel Omni has free wireless Internet

    Hilton Bonaveture has cable/$9.95 per night but free wireless Internet in the lobby. This is due to the building and walls being thick concrete so what is available in the lobby is not available in the rooms

    Hotel Intercontinental $14.95 per night wireless

    Grand Plaza, formerly Crown Plaza then Doubletree. Free wireless as well as plenty of free parking on side streets.

    Quality Inn on Parc. Free wireless.

    Generally speaking, the more expensive the room, the less likely you are to get free wifi.

    I stayed at the Marriott Chateau Champlain just last week and had free wireless internet in the room...

    Of the three hotels I've stayed at in the Montreal area two offered free internet.

    On my first trip I stayed at the Econo Lodge downtown and they offered free internet. My room also was huge and had a hot tub in it. During my first trip I also stayed at the Holiday Inn in Longueuil. Also free internet.

    The rest of my trips to Montreal I've stayed at the InterContinental which charges for internet. However, because I'm a platinum priority club member they took the charge off my bill both times. I agree that the more expensive the hotel the less likely they'll offer free internet.

    IIRC, the Quality Inn on Parc, IIRC, didn't have wireless, but ethernet. But it's free.

    I agree that the more expensive the room, you probably won't get free wifi.

    I guess they figure if you can afford the room, you can afford to get nickeled and dimed.

    I was told the Chablis/St-Jacques has it also for free. That is something that would be extremely helpful, should you become "stranded"...
