World's Most Outrageous Hotel Fees

Many travelers like the simplicity and ease of traveling light—including not having to tip a bellhop for demonstrating the light switches, pointing at the TV set, and asking, "Is there anything else I can do for you?" Sometimes you just grin and bear it, and give the man a few bucks for his trouble. But before you do, try to recall whether the desk clerk mentioned anything about "porter charges." Increasingly, hotels are tacking on this fee, which is meant to be pooled by the bellhops. Too often, guests don't realize this and tip the bellhops separately.

Your Cost: As much as $8 per person, even if you carried your own luggage to and from your room.
