3. PHONE/INTERNET USAGE. The phones—a classic hotel rip-off —used to
constitute between 1 and 2 percent of a hotel’s income. With cell phones,
that has dropped, but this doesn’t stop them from gouging you with
high fees to make a cheap (or free) call. Likewise, installing WiFi is not
a huge expense compared with the $15 daily charge each guest gets hit
with to use it. Ironically, at many cheaper hotels you get WiFi for free.
For most business hotel guests, using the phone and Internet are not
optional services. It would be like the hotel charging extra to use the
toilet.

They should not give them ideas. Remember the 10 cent toilets at the airport, bus staion, railroad station???
