Do Gadget-Pimped Hotels Entice You?

Lately I've been reading a lot about hotels attempting to spice up rooms with some technological edge or another. In New York, there's already a Pod Hotel, which comes fully equipped with iPod docking stations, free WiFi and LCD TVs. Hyatt hotels are also planning to add iPod-ready iHome clock radio speaker systems to guest rooms in its U.S., Canada and Caribbean properties. According to the International Herald Tribune, "the race is on for hotels to upgrade guest rooms with high-definition flat-screen TV's, iPod docking stations and a wider selection of programming like On Demand." Some are even introducing more movies, music and games, which are usually offered in higher-rate rooms. How do you feel about hotels boasting the latest gadgets and tech gear? Maybe you couldn't care less about gadgetry, but are always on the search for WiFi friendly hotels?
