Going on vacation but not ready to fully unplug? A new website will help you find a hotel with the best Internet speeds.

Hotel WiFi Test ranks Internet connections speeds of some of the world’s top hotels that offer Wi-If, along with information including whether they will have to pay for it. Cities available include New York, London, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Singapore.

The information is largely crowd-sourced, with people running speed tests through the site while at the hotel in question. Reviews are aggregated to give an Expected Internet speed as well as a Confidence Score that shows how thoroughly the hotel has been tested.

Though the site contains brief descriptions of other hotel amenities like dining options and amenities services, no personalized travel  reviews are given.

According to Hotel Wifi Test: “Your results are bound to the hotel in which you are staying, our speed test is an excellent way to alert them about problems with the service they offer, and motivate them to make changes for the better.”

So far hundreds of hotels have been texted and the Andaz, Le Meridien, Radisson Blu, Sheraton, Marriott, Hyatt and Residence Inn brands have come out on top for fast and reliable Internet service.
