The intnet service at all Marriott hotels is slower than dial up. In my case now in the hartland of the USA, the internet is so slow that that uploading files may take hours, where in my office, where there are over 400 continuous users, the same file would take less than 30 seconds.
When will the hotels get it! We need internet service.
If I have to get an air card, Marriott may not be the best hotel to stay at.
I think we should push for FREE INTERNET as a Platinum benefit -- there are few other things that we Platinum folks get that Gold and Silver don't. Of course, I'd prefer it to be free to all. I often stay at a Courtyard on a short stay just for that reason.
