Do hotels advertise against themselves?

I’ve been in hotels that give less than they advertise. The Hyatt On The Bund boasts high-speed Internet, the Grand Club at the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka boasts a continental breakfast and the Sheraton Macao boasts Sweet Sleeper bunk beds (okay, the lower deck is a Sweet Sleeper, but the upper deck is a piece of runway carved out by a 747 on a hard landing).

I’ve never seen a hotel that advertises less than they actually deliver.

Well, I’m now at the Westin Chosun Seoul, and one thing I’ve been concerned about regards the WiFi situation.

The hotel advertises a WiFi connection at HK$157 per day. That’s a damn lot, in my opinion.

However, I got on the WiFi just to make sure today.

Without asking for my room number, the WiFi was automatically connected to, and a rate was never asked for.

The WiFi’s not especially fast, but much better than nothing. 😀

I mean, why would a hotel put something on their site potentially to pull away guests if it’s not even true?

The Westin Chosun, if you’re reading this, I’m not complaining!
