But I do have /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
with ssid and psk set to the values provided by the hotel.

wpa_supplicant is started on boot. I've

ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP"

in /etc/rc.conf

The message:

skip - no WPA/RSN proto match.

is issued by wpa_supplicant, and I've
run it with -d (debug mode) to see that it
does indeed fids the access point, just
the point does not offere WPA or RSN services.

When you say WME/HTCAP are optional, do you mean
I need to enable either manually?
If so, how?
