MWSF Tip - Complete SF Hotel High Speed Access Listing

HANDY SAN FRAN HOTEL HIGH-SPEED WEB ACCESS CHART

So you book a hotel in a distant city and show up with your laptop expecting high-speed Internet access in your room. Instead you find the only thing high-speed in dark efficiency is Microsoft's WebTV. Highly frustrated, you vow next time to check for high-speed access before booking at "Jim & Jerry's Motel on Monroe."

That 'next time' is now.

If you're attending Macworld Expo beginning January 5 in San Francisco, Calif., you'll want a room with high-speed service to hook your iBook or PowerBook to. The Mac Observer has called over 50 different hotels and here is a handy chart of hotels that do and do not have high-speed Internet access.

If you're lucky, you can combine this list with our tip on using Hotwire to get the room at the best price.

BE ADVISED: Rates will vary. Not all hotels have cables to borrow, so remember to bring your own.
