As has been said in other parts of this thread NANOG typically 
negotiates to have in room internet removed from the attendees bill.

Also +1 regarding what Joel and John have said regarding the business 
complexities surrounding making the conference network available in-room 
or otherwise manipulating the existing network infrastructure of the 
hotel. Its worth a try but sometimes it is just not practical to do this.
