... and destination fees, facility fees, location fees and the multitudinous deceptive names hoteliers apply to these mandatory “top up” room rates of up to $95 per night. It’ll take years to make its way to a final judicial decision no doubt as I’m sure Marriott will defend this odious practice with the same unseemly vigour it displayed to rolling out these bait-and-switch fees beyond traditional resorts.
I’m both saddened that my favourite hotel group has been picked out in this litigation but also happy too as I know it’s become a late, but very enthusiastic, adopter - too enthusiastic by half. Hopefully other AGs will follow DCs lead and this awful spivvy practice that so besmirches Marriotts erstwhile trusted name can be eradicated.
