jroysdon asks: "I'm going on a company-paid conference trip to LA for Cisco Networkers in late June. Cisco has a list of hotels nearby that they've nogetiated rates with, but the first 3 I've checked don't have any high-speed internet access (just data jacks for modems). At $.60 a pop per local call, I might as well find a place that's going to get me a decent connection, and plus the company's paying for it and some of the time I'll be spending keeping up on company email, etc. Does anyone know of a good travel site that lists geek-friendly amenities like high-speed internet access, or even 802.11 wireless? At this rate, I'll probably be staying 11 miles away instead of a few blocks so I can have something better than a modem. The hardest thing is getting the 800-number attendants to understand what I mean when I ask: 'Do you have RJ-11 data ports in any of your rooms?'" Honestly, until broadband access becomes a bit more common-place in the US (much less everywhere else), you won't see many hotels offering ethernet service as a selling point, however it would be nice to see a website that lists them as they show up.
