If you looking for a beautiful hotel with a smooth veneer and a nickel and diming undercurrent, this is it. The $18 dollar a day resort fee covers internet access in your room and in the lobby (what nice facility doesn't have complimentary internet access in the lobby?), a chair on the beach, the gym (the gym!) and a newspaper (who charges for USA Today?), but you have to go to the front desk to get it. After signing up for the fee I discovered that I could get a chair on the beach and a newspaper without showing any proof that I paid extra. Who tricks guests into paying extra for something that's really available to all guests? And paying to use the gym is something that I just don't get. My favorite: who pays $180 a day and upwards for a room, asks for a coffee maker in the room and is told that their tower doesn't carry coffee makers - the implication being that the other towers do. Question: "Well, may I please have a coffee maker brought to my room?" Answer: "No." Huh? Really? I finally stopped asking for amenities that are common in other luxury hotels. I was with a very large, well-heeled convention group and almost everyone I talked to complained about the hidden fees. Dear Fountaine-no, we spend money, we just don't like to be tricked into doing it!
