Wireless on the Butte

March 26, 2005

In Crested Butte this week I had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Grand Lodge. Here's a lodging facility that understands how little it costs to offer free internet access to all its customers, and how much of a differentiator it can be. Why do some of the most expensive hotels -- the ones that cater to the i-educated -- still think it makes sense to charge $10 per day for the right to jump on line? Thank you, Grand Lodge, for a wonderful, productive stay.
