Hi Marcia,

When I checked in at the Chateau, the receptionist denied all knowledge of such a deal. However, given that I would be staying 7 nights, he said this would entitle me to join some sort of executive club which would give free internet access (nothing to do with IETF). I'm a bit skeptical of this, so it's good to know that internet access should indeed be free. I booked in the IETF block.

Thanks,

...Paul
