The first Hotel Wi-Fi Test Report lists the Top Ten major hotel brands with the fastest measured internet speeds and a Top 100 hotels list.
The list of top hotel chains is:
1. Andaz (Hyatt)
2. Le Meridien (Starwood)
3. Radisson Blu (Carlson)
4. Four Points (Starwood)
5. Scandic (Scandic, chain of 154 hotels primarily in Scandinavian countries; HQ in Stockholm)
6. Sheraton (Starwood)
7. Crowne Plaza (InterContinental Hotels Group)
10. Residence Inn (Marriott)
Hilton is the notable hotel chain absent from this list with no brands making the top ten.
One of the cool features of the site is hotel guests can conduct a hotel WiFi speed test on the spot while in a hotel.
There is also list of cities around the world where tested hotels are ranked for WiFi speed.
A look at the Top 100 revealed a few Hilton hotels including DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago Arlington Heights at #3 ahead of Radisson Blu Amsterdam Schiphol Airport at #4.
In my area Hyatt Regency Santa Clara comes in at #30.
In a list with hotels like The Ritz London at #9, Renaissance Boca Raton at #19 and Ghent Marriott in Belgium at #42 is an independent motel called the Monterey Surf Inn at #69 located about a mile from my home on Munras Avenue in Monterey.
Monterey Surf Inn ranks #64 on Hotel Wi-Fi Test.
