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.

Invalid request error occurred.

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.

Invalid request error occurred.

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

Invalid request error occurred.

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!
