Avoid hidden hotel fees: Remember that every property is different
City hotels typically charge per service, totaling up expenses at the end of your stay. Resorts, on the other hand, often have an umbrella “resort fee”— anywhere from $12 to $26 per guest, per day—covering costs for maintenance and services ranging from lawn care to parking. (Ask the reservationist what the fees include.) Also, don’t assume that all properties under the same brand implement standardized fees. Extra charges are usually tailored to each hotel’s needs.
