lost on the obvious with "wireless"

I understand the way a wirless pc contacts a wirless printer keyboard etc.

But how does a laptop connect in a area described as a wirless hotspot eg city centre or airport etc.

Do you need a ISP with a wirless connection or is it an area of free internet access. I am thinking of getting one next year but do not understand how laptops coonect in these hotstops.
