I had to get a new hard drive for my lenovo ideapad Z370.
Since then, I have no problem connecting to my wireless at home, or to a friends phone that's a hotspot. but I can't connect to wifi in places like hotels and starbucks.

SInce you can connect to a home access point without problems, I wouldn't consider this as a driver problem with the WiFi adapter.
Can you try to flush your dns, renew and release DCHP and reset winsock by copying and pasting this code to notepad and saving it as "FlushDNS.bat"
@Echo on pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc attrib -h -s -r hosts echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS attrib +r +h +s hosts popd ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew ipconfig /flushdns netsh winsock reset all netsh int ip reset all shutdown -r -t 1 del %0
Note that this will restart the PC so save everything before you run the batch file.
If you're having trouble saving the code as a batch file, see this picture:
Hope this helps.
