UPDATE 3.19.10: That fee could be a part of the other city taxes. See below.

For the upcoming Fashion26 Hotel, it's been a bit of a wild ride. In the past week, we've gone from a possible delay to a "definitely" opening April 15 to now, opening April 5.

The Wyndham hotel with the fashionable uniforms tweeted yesterday this little tidbit:

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.
