These days, if you can't supply free Internet access as part of your standard package, you are pretty lame. It's expected. At the Doubletree Westborough, they actually charge you $10 for each device. So if you want to connect your laptop and then have some Facetime video with your kids for a few minutes on your iPhone, you're looking at an extra $20 per day. This plain stinks. My company is based near here and so this is one of the hotels we get to choose from. For this single reason, I will never come back here. I can go right down the street to the Doubletree in Milford and get a much nicer room with free wireless Internet access for all my devices. Sorry Hilton, you screw this one up. Have to be Gold before you can get free Internet access? Seriously? I can go sit in any Starbucks for free and almost every other hotel I stay in offers this as a complimentary service. Stop nickel and diming your customers.
Also, these rooms are small. I had been staying at the Doubletree Milford and was used to a much larger room and bathroom. This one has a small room with no refrigerator and a sink about the size of a large cutting board. I am a man and can barely fit my hairbrush, deodorant, and toothbrush on the counter. God help you if you are a woman or a couple and needing to put things in the bathroom.
I can live with the smaller room. I can't live with having to pay $20 a day for Internet access that I get complimentary everywhere else, regardless of what level I am with their rewards program.
