    perhaps the hotels use wpa encryption? (which the ds can't use)

    That's because a lot of hotels use a redirect page where you have to enter your credentials and everything. Try going somewhere on a Nintendo DS Browser or DSOrganize's web browser, it'll redirect you, you login and it records your DS's IP address, and then you're clear to play.
    It may not be WPA encryption.

    usually you need to pay in the hotels to use the internet

    What Gerinych said. Usually there's a webpage where you have to agree to a tos and enter some sort of code.

    depends on which ones... we usually stay at the Hilton or the Marriott and they give ya the internet for free, or just like another poster said, you gotta sign up at the front desk, and you get a code, then you go to the re-direct page and sign-in basically, but it's still completely free at those hotels.

    However, it's slow as a 7-year-itch because everyone is on it...

    did get free wired-internet @ a holiday inn around 4th of july, stayed there for 3 days just for fun, but the internet was so slow i couldn't even watch a youtube video. just everyone was connected to it, and apparently they are only paying for one broadband connection, and spreading it to all the rooms...
