Last week I was very impressed to find this at my desk in the Westin Jersey City:

NB The D-Link pocket WiFi router being powered by the media bar USB. For some odd reason this hotel doesn’t have WiFi (but thankfully it does have free wired Internet) – so having my own WiFi is handy for my iPod, Blackberry etc. (and surfing away from the desk).
In the past I’ve often struggled with putting video from my laptop onto a hotel room screen (with connectors either inaccessible or impossible to get at). It’s great to see that hotels are finally getting a clue and making life easy.
Now I must remember to add a VGA cable to my usual travel kit (though I would hope that reception would have some loaners).
