Re: Boycott those hotels
It does seem that way.
A couple of years back I had the chance of the Hilton for one price on special offer and a 'cheaper' hotel for the same price. I took the Hilton offer.
They then proceeded to charge for *everything*. Parking.. (first time I've *ever* had to pay extra for parking at a hotel), breakfast, even though the offer said 'included', wifi was a stupid price, 1 channel of TV and everything else extra, the bar and restaurant were eyewateringly expensive, etc.
I've never been back. Nowadays I always look for the place with reasonable wifi first and avoid the 'well known' brands.
