"Hidden fees rejoice!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Wow. first time at a Hotel and I hope it's my last. I arrived late last night. I observed nowhere I could park myself when I arrived. When I went to the check in desk where they informed me that I just needed to give the valet my room number and they would park my car. The front desk employee also informed me what hours the breakfast would be available from. The room overall was great. I slept well. I woke up and went to have some breakfast. My first observations was they had some fruit that I rarely see at other hotels like blackberries and raspberries. So initially I was pleased with this and then I saw they didn't have eggs. It's the first time I've gone to a hotel and eggs wasn't an option for breakfast. Despite wanting eggs I found some other choices and finished my breakfast. An employee then brought me a bill for $21.64. I thought was was shady. I was under the impression the breakfast was included with my hotel costs. If you want to charge your guests let them know up front when checking in or when the guest enters the breakfast area. Had I known I certainly would have declined knowing the cost for the meal. I certainly wouldn't have paid $21.64 for a eggs free breakfast. I thought this would be the worst part about my stay but I was then blindsided with far worse hidden fees. I went to check out and the person at the front desk ask if I wanted to use my card on file to pay for the parking. I asked her to clarify. She said for their forced parking, I would be required to pay $38.97. Dear. god. .. For comparison, the room cost was $140.20. Just for parking the car they wanted between a 3rd/4th of the hotel cost LMAO. Y'all have lost your damn minds with that one. I spoke to the supervisor about the hidden fees and she said there was a sign that informed guests about the charges. Additionally, she said that information about their forced parking was on their website. I booked the room over the phone and never visited their website and I didn't see their sign until AFTER I was leaving to intentionally look for it. I personally think the costs were shady. I wouldn't have gone knowing the forced parking charges. The good news about this is knowing NOT to visit a Westin hotel in the future. Additionally, I hope to inform others through social media and reviews to prevent the same mistake I made.
