    Planning our next trip to THEHotel was wondering about the in-room internet included with the resort fee.

    Does that fee cover more than one internet device in the room or is it limited to just one device? GF talked me into a tablet like hers and now we both can't go anywhere without those darn things.

    *I thought I saw something a while ago about only one device can be used but I searched and couldn't find it.

    Thanks!

    FWIW, every time I've stayed there (~3 times) I've been able to connect both a phone and iPad.

    the wifi isn't room specific usually. they have antennas spread throughout the floors, so they don't know where you're connecting from so there'd be no way to regulate it to one per room.

    I don't know about THEhotel, but I'd try to call to be sure if you don't get someone with direct experience here.

    I do know that when I stayed at Planet Ho last spring they said that internet was "per device" and after I had signed on with my laptop, I was unable to use it on my tablet or the phone. :grrr:

    We have used their wifi on our two iPhones and a laptop at the same time without a problem.

    That's usually how its done. Only small time hotels make you log in with a hotel provided password or enter your room number. It costs these hotels very little to provide internet to its customers. Not to mention I'm sure the hotel uses it as well for maintenance or other functions.

    Well, thehotel must be "small time" then, because when we stayed there Feb 2011, we had to sign in with our name and room number every 24 hours or so. The upside- my husband had his netbook and I had my laptop and it was no problem to have both connected at the same time, both covered by the same resort fee:peace:

    This is correct. I've had a laptop, an android and an iPhone all connected to the in room wifi all at the same time. You do have to enter your room number and the last name that the room is under when you first attempt to connect.

    Yes you can use multiple devices at THEHotel. That has never been an issue for us.

    The problem was the speed of the WiFi. The connection was VERY slow during our entire trip. The connection kept coming in and out. It was mostly low signal strength the entire time. Very aggravating when it takes minutes to load an email or the page times out from the delay! My wife had some important work emails to handle but she ended up just giving up since the connection was so slow.

    I complained about this at the front desk and all they could say was that the connection strength can vary in different locations and would likely improve shortly (which it never did)

    My iPhone was fast as ever in the lobby but just dragged along in our room. I think they should have took the resort fee off but they didn't offer anything like that.

    I agree. Last Sep my Iphone was going very slow with Wifi. Sometimes it would ramp up to a decent speed, but for the most part it was so slow I gave up and used the 3G connection.

    It's free as it's included as an amenity of the resort fee. Although the resort fee itself is $25 +tax!
