Our special guest today is Christopher Elliott, the Consumer Reporter whose column appears in the Travel section of each Sunday’s Sacramento Bee. Chris talks with us about those hated “resort fees” that are becoming so popular with hotels these days. In an interesting twist, Chris explains why those fees may not even be going into the coffers of the resort, but directly into someone’s wallet. You’ll want to hear his explanation and some hints on how to avoid fees which weren’t disclosed in advance.
In the Travel News, Mark tells us about Hotels on the Hudson for the Super Bowl and the national hotel chain which is the first to offer free wi-fi across their entire chain. Listeners even get a chance to win a $100 American Express Gift Card by naming the Things you Should Do Before Settling into Your Hotel Room.
