Things I’ll Give Up for Free Internet Access in My Hotel Room

I’ll be out-of-state for an upcoming wedding in October, and was planning to work from my hotel room. I was unsurprised to learn that I’ll have to pay for Internet access, but was still annoyed:

• In-Room Wireless Internet: $9.95, Complimentary for HHonors Gold & Diamond

Here are free amenities I am willing to forgo for free Internet access:

• Arm Chair with Ottoman
• Clock Radio w/ MP3 Connection
• Curved Shower Rod
• Ergonomic Desk Chair
• HD Channels
• In-Room Movie Channel
• Lever Door Handles
• On-Demand Movies
• On-Demand Video Games
• TV — 37 Inch Flat Panel HD
• TV-Cable
• TV-Pay per view
• Coffee Maker
• Desk Level Phone Jacks
• Hairdryer
• Telephone — Two Phones

All that has to be worth at least $9.95, right?
