Is this due to security settings on your phone? Public and free WiFi (those shown without a padlock symbol) is not secure. Everything routed through them can potentially be intercepted.
I occasionally use free WiFi in pubs and bars, but always use a VPN to secure the connection.
I'm sure if you ask there will be others able to connect, compare settings.
Don't forget to get a VPN, I use a paid service by CyberGhost, but there are others too.

how do you know the VPN is secure? By its very nature you are taking your data through an extra place

It may be because your browser is trying to connect to an https site, and Chrome doesn't let the hotel's wifi intercept the secure connection to redirect you to the wifi logon page.
So, when it gets blocked try manually navigating to a non-https site like "bbc.co.uk" which should then allow the browser to be redirected to the wifi logon page.
