Help with IPAD 2 hotel wifi with browser passwords

our hotel has unsecured wifi, but needs a password in a browswer.  IPAD2 safari wont open, it just errors out and says there is no internet connection, when there actually is.  Laptops work fine, of course, they are auto-redirected to a router page that allows a login.  How do I do this with the IPAD?

Can you verify that you are connected to the WiFi and getting a valid IP?
you could try telling the iPad to forget the existing hotel wifi connection and rediscover it, making sure it is connecting to the correct one.
