Holla'! Tune Hotels is Doing Away With The Room Administration Fee
January 5, 2011 at 11:16 AM
For being the hotel snobs that we are, we actually dig the "no frills" concept of Tune Hotels. And despite having a room that was only slightly larger than a sleeper cabin on a train, we really enjoyed our stay at the Tune Hotel Westminster in London. The price was right and the room was rather cozy.
But the one thing that did sort of irk us was all the add-ons that the hotel charges, mostly before you even get there.
However, Tune is finally doing away with one fee--the room administration fee. In conjunction/celebration of the new Tune Hotel Bintulu opening in Malaysia, Tune Hotel is dropping this fee across all 12 properties starting today. And you can thank Tune expansion for that.
As we open more hotels we experience better economies of scale and become more cost efficient. We eventually found the admin fee no longer relevant and are delighted to be in a position to pass on the savings to our guests,” said Tune Hotels Group CEO Mark Lankester.
We actually didn't have an admin room fee for our room in London, or not that we can see on our bill, so we assume this is better news for the Malaysia properties. But still, it's good news all around.
Now Tune, when are you coming to New York?
