1001 Travel Guide
UPDATE 3.19.10: That fee could be a part of the other city taxes. See below.
it is official, we are accepting reservations for April 5th Grand Opening date is earlier than we thought.
And indeed the website's reservations system reflects this change. We found room rezzies for April 5 for $246 a night at an Advance Purchase rate which is nonrefundable and requires full prepayment. More flexible room rates start at $289 a night. However, the hotel is tacking on a $3.50 fee.
For what, we don't exactly know. There is free WiFi in the guest rooms so maybe this fee is a way to recoup that cost. Which is fine with us. Totally beats paying $12.99 or more.
