I’m so sick of hotel internet. Why does it have to consistently suck? Sure…. there are exceptions. The W in Seattle had pretty fast internet last week, and I can think of a couple other properties that have had decent internet speeds, but by and large, hotel internet is awfully slow. To think that some people actually have to PAY for those speeds is absolutely ridiculous. Internet was so slow a couple nights ago at the Courtyard Boulder Louisville that I decided to run a head to head speed test. Let’s check out the results.

Wow. need I say anymore? Dear hotels, please get your act together. Pay a little extra, have some speedy internet, and ADVERTISE IT. Tell us that you have the “fastest hotel internet in the city.” Tech is hot right now. Geeks hate slow internet. If you want those geeks to put their dollars to work at your hotel, give them some real incentive.
