The double tree and extra payment???
I've got a question....I reserved a hotel room at the Doubletree, and the place gave me the final cost. When I called up to ensure they are not going to tag additional costs on me like Omni did last year, they told me that in addition to the final cost that I have been given via email confirmation, I have to also pay 50 dollars per night extra as some sort of a security deposit in case anything happens to the room, and that they will give that money back after we check out.
Omni only asked by the way for an extra 100 USD, but the Doubletree is asking for 50 USD per night...which is means that my group has to shell out an additional 250 USD...and if I had not called up ahead of time we would have never known.
Is anyone else being made to pay this amount too? Why was this not factored into the original cost? It seems unfair to me to tell the customer that "X amount" is left over and then spring a sudden charge when they show up without telling them.
