What’s a wireless internet connection worth in a Hyatt hotel?

The answer, apparently, depends greatly on where you are in the hotel. In the lobby, a one-day pass to use their wireless internet connection costs $10.95. Not cheap, but standard for nice hotels.

Down in the main ballroom, however, the story is very different. A one-day pass to the internet there costs $300!

I have to wonder which Hyatt he’s staying at. When I was at the one in San Diego, I gladly shelled out $10. I also paid $10 more later on at the San Diego Airport. I just needed a fix.
