Android phone on hotel's free Wi-Fi

Likes # 0

I have an HTC Wildfire running Android 2.2.1 which picks up my Hotmail, AOL email, Facebook etc without me logging in each time. I am going to Mexico next month and the hotel has free Wi-Fi. By connecting my phone to this, I can view all my accounts without entering passwords but is this safe to do? What makes me wary is that my Hotmail was used for spam a few years ago after logging into it, on a different mobile, using free Wi-Fi in another country (although here, I manually entered my password).
