    So obviously MC only has Ethernet cables. What are my options for using my MacBook Air in the room there?

    Simple, buy a thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter for your MacBook Air.

    Just to second, we have about 20 of these adapters in the office - but a genuine Apple one. The generic ones (if available in the US) don't seem as good.

    I bought one of these a few months ago. Cheaper than the Thunderbolt adapter and it will allow multiple devices to use that internet feed and not just the laptop. (I have a macbook without ethernet also)

    It works as a small wireless router so the ethernet from the room is broadcast over a wifi network that then your laptop along with your smartphone or tablet can use.

    Also, it is really small, the picture makes it look larger than it is. It is about the skinny side of a playing card wide (but square) and maybe a deck of cards tall. And super light. All of which plays into be easy to travel with it.

    Just FYI....my wife and I stayed in a standard room at Monte Carlo last October and they had Wifi. Like you, I was under the impression going in that they did not have Wifi, but they did.
