  1. You know, i read tripadvisor alot, and the #1 complaint, by far, is the hidden fees. Now as a business traveller, I guess I am just used to the better the hotel, the more they charge you for. It doesnt bother me. If you want all included, check out a 4 points or holiday inn. If you are staying at a luxury, or upscale hotel, you should expect extra charges. The disarray is between the hotel, not communicating it enough, and the customer, not understanding it well enough.

  2. I was completely put off Sheraton after a disgusting dinner buffet in the Sheraton in Georgetown, Penang. I rated it 0/5 and described it as an accident waiting to happen. They broke so many of the most basic food hygiene rules. I even had a long chat with the duty manager to try to explain all the things that were wrong and to make suggestions as to how they could put them right.

    That hotel has since changed hands and has been rebranded as the Dorsett Hotel. I’ve just had a quick look on Trip Advisor and the reviews are not great. I suspect that this is still one to avoid.

  3. at last a hotel that is actually listening to its customers – hidden fees are becoming the bain of a travellers life whether it is extras for internet connection in hotels of baggage charges on airlines – it makes travelling a whole lot more expensive.

  4. One thing i really object to that i have recently experienced in a few hotels in the US including some of the top chains is charging for the use of the gym when i am a guest. Often they look to charge $15 – $20 each visit. When I am away for work for a week or fortnight i like to be able to still work out and this fairly adds to your hotel bill. What also annoys me is that for some of the hotels i have high frequent guest miles and am at the top of their scheme and they still charge you!

  5. Im sorry, but I stayed in a Sheraton in California and they charged my fiance our room services and an additional amount just in case we ordered room service again. I would call that a hidden fee. We were not too happy about the money being put on hold.
