having negotiated or attempted to negotiate this as part of a number of
hotel contracts, I'd note that while nice to have this is not always
possible, so while I'd put it on the list, if it becomes a deal-breaker
it would substantially reduce the number of available venues or result
in payment of significant considerations to the hotel for the lost
revenue from non-nanog guests to the hotel, for whom internet is
generally an upsell unless included in their rate.
