A recent study found that wireless Internet access is available in most hotels throughout the U.S., and fewer are charging for it. Conducted by Smith Travel Research for the American Hotel & Lodging Association's 2008 Lodging Survey, it found that of the more than 10,000 hotels questioned, 91% offer Wi-Fi, up from 35% four years ago. The survey also found that in 2004, 22% charged for in-room Internet service. That figure is now around 16%.
