Resorts are the *worst*
Reader comment on: Hotel Fees
in response to reader comment: No. The issue for customers is not hotel taxes, it is DISCLOSURE

The Atlantis currently quotes rate packages with "resort fees not included" and we have no idea of what those are. Normally, that's just been a $40 a day actual "resort fee," but an "electricity charge" is certainly creative.
The travel portal providers such as Priceline, Expedia, CheapCaribbeanHotels, etc., make this problem even worse, as we depend on the full slate of rate rules being easily visible through the portal. There may be field length limits which "cut off" part of the rate rules, etc. It's interesting how company travel portals (ie, AMEX) tend not to have this problem, but consumer focused sites always have my wife reduced to having to call (is the charge per person or per room? etc.)
