When planning my trip to Raleigh-Durham this week, I had to choose from approximately two dozen hotels, motels, executive suites, and residence inns in the Research Triangle area near the airport.  Guess what, I didn't choose the nicest hotel, the one with the most services, or the fanciest foyer and pool. Nope, I chose Springhill Suites, which was one of, if not the least expensive alternative. Why?

Free High Speed Internet Access

Free == Easy

If any of the hotels in the area had been offering hotel-wide Wi-Fi as well as free high speed internet access via DSL or cable (Wi-Fi == Easier), I probably would have stayed there instead.
