    Does anyone know about the internet service @ the Poly? Is it wireless? Do you need a earthnet cable from home? Does it cost, if it does how much? Most of all I have seen pictures of the rooms safe, it says that a laptop would fit, but from the looks of the picture that I saw it could be a tight squeeze. Any info would be helpful. We leave in 4 days & are debating on wheather or not to bring the laptop.
    Thanks

    Sorry, it is not wireless at the Polynesian. The cable is in the closet in a pouch tied to a clothes hanger. I think ours was on the hanger with the laundry ticket. Yes there is a charge, maybe $9.95 a day?

    I do not think a laptop would fit in the safe, but I've never tried it. Perhaps someone who has can confirm.

    Have a great trip!:goodvibes

    You're welcome! The Sox are up 6 to 1 if you do not have the game on.

    BTW, I think that the safe at the Polynesian might not be deep enough for some laptops. Height and width wise might be o.k. and I know I've been able to lock my laptop in similar type room safes in other hotels (on business - no laptop, Blackberry or voice-mail on vacation!!!)

    Have a fun trip. You are going soon, right? -DOH! Just re-read and you are leaving in 4 days...that warrants a big

    ALOHA

    The internet service at the Polynesian is wired, an ethernet wire is included. The service costs $9.95 for one day. Our laptop didn't fit in the case, but it is rather large. Smaller laptops would fit. :)

    My laptop fit in the safe at Pop -- standing up on it's side. I can't imagine the safes at Poly are any smaller, so you should be okay.
