Good News: Loews Hotels To Reimburse Guests for Checked Baggage Fees

May 23, 2008 at 6:00 AM | by | ()

Where the airlines have failed travelers--American Airlines is now charging $15 for the first checked bag and $25 for the second--hotels have come to the rescue. At least the Loews Hotels brand has.

Arriving guests need only present any airline bag fee receipt at the front desk to receive the rebate, which will be issued in the form of a credit to their bill at check-out.

The Baggage Buy Back rebate is available at Loews' 18 properties in the U.S. and Canada, beginning June 15 through Labor Day, September 1, 2008.

Loews Hotels will offer credit for up to two bags for a maximum of $30 per occupied room per stay.

This is not the only time hotels have picked up after the airlines. Some hotels like Omni Hotels, were quick to offer guests toiletries back in 2006 when liquids were suddenly restricted on airlines.

Now let's hope more and more hotels follow Loews footsteps.

This is really interesting. Perhaps hotels could give some of all that money that they're making to these floundering airlines.

Terrific idea. And here's another one, and it would cut out their rebate accounting hassles. No $10+ Internet fees. Same diff.
