And it is showing that its online through my wireless connection but it wont let me online

Talk to the hotel - you may need a username and password, or a special PC Card to be able to use the Free Wireless. Or it may not be free, and you may need to pay for a username.

Where did you buy the laptop from?

Sounds like windows is not activated. If you have a genuine copy of WIndows XP, you should be able to activate with no problems, assuming you have an active internet connection to the laptop.
