Internet access in Cleveland

Reading this story about why some hotels charge for Internet access and some don't prompted me to check out the rules at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, where the ACES conference will be held.
They charge -- $9.95 a night for a high-speed connection (with free local and long-distance calling thrown in). There's wireless access in the public areas; I assume that's free.

Oh, they've gotten pretty good at charging for wireless access in common areas.

I hope you have better luck than I had at the Society for News Design workshop in Houston last fall. I paid about the same amount but received four days of spotty access.

I've been in several hotels now that charge for wired access, and yet have good free wireless signal in the rooms.

I paid about the same at the ACES conference last year (in L.A.), and the access was fine.

The last hotel I stayed at (outside D.C.) had free wireless access in the lobby and rooms, but it was password protected. They'd give it out as soon as you asked.

But I'll definitely check the room before I pay.
