NY Times had an interesting article about hotels with high speed networks available to customers. They also had the following link:

Click on the GeekTels tab to search for wired hotels. I now carry 3 PCMCIA cards for my laptop. A 56k modem, a 10/100 ethernet card, and a wireless 802.11 card. I'm equipped, baby. It lists the Wellesley in Chesapeake as having high speed although their web site just says a dataport on the phone.

By the way, you can get a rate at this hotel through a service like Hotel Guide for $49.00 per night, but you've got to pay it all in advance, plus some additional charges. If you call the hotel direct they will give you various, much higher rates. However, they have a $54.00 rate published on the internet. Insist on that rate.
