My hotel room has an Ethernet jack, which got me thinking - given the way LANs work, isn't this basically on the level of open wifi in terms of (in)security, and far more risky than connecting via WPA2/AES, which the hotel also provides?

I'm sure the hotel's IT department has segmented guest network traffic from hotel corporate network traffic, but I doubt they'd go as far as creating a separate VLAN for each individual hotel room...

The question is about *relative* security, not absolute security, which frankly does not exist, nor is it about my personal circumstances. FWIW, I'm distrusting to the point where I'm currently tethered to my phone's LTE connection and then connecting via a VPN.
