How to avoid paying the resort fee

Postby thebreeze » Mon Aug 27, 2012 11:58 am

A husband and wife are checking out of their hotel after 3 nights. The clerk gives them the bill and they notice they are being charged $50/night for a resort fee. They ask the clerk what that is.

Desk Clerk: "That is for the use of the pool, internet, convention space and shuttle."
Wife: "But we didn't use those services, so why should we have to pay for them?"
Desk Clerk: "Well, those amenities were available to you and whether you chose to use them or not is not my problem."

So the husband convinces his wife to just write the check but she shorts the check by $50/night.

Desk Clerk: "Ma'am, the amount on this check is incorrect."
Wife: "The amount is indeed correct. I deducted the charge for sleeping with me each night".
Desk Clerk: "But I didn't sleep with you ANY night".
Wife: "Well I was available to you and whether you chose to use THAT amenity is not MY problem".
In the depths of the mind insane.
Fantasy and reality are the saaaaaame!

Well, if that works, the same couple can never go back to that hotel because the clerk will want to take advantage of the offer....... :D

If a person is comped for their stay at a hotel do they still charge you the resort fee?

Depends on the hotel. Was charged resort fee at Monte Carlo. But no fee at other places.
