There are really no workarounds for this since you won't have access to
the routers' settings. The cause is that not all routers work with
Vista. Some can be made to work by applying firmware updates and some
would need to be replaced. Since this network equipment will belong to
the hotels, there's nothing you can do about this.

Re: Hotel/Hotspot networks
Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from
certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers
