How do I set up the Airport Express for use with my iPad?

Reading from the question and answers over here. I believe that an Airport Express will help me with internet connectivity in hotels that only provide internet cables whenever I travel. Being a noob at this sort of stuff, I would need to know if it is as easy as plug and play or what application will I need to download in my iPad in order to enjoy the wi-fi network? Like what are the steps I need to take in order to ensure the connection works.

    The Express is not plug and play out of the box. Setup the Express once with AirPort Utility that is installed on a computer, then for future use the Express will be plug and play. An iPad needs to download nothing - it will easily connect to the wireless network of an Express.
