I generally don't like resort fees. Since they are mandatory, they should just be part of the room rate. The states certainly think so since they impose hotel taxes on them. It's even more painful as a Platinum because when the resorts list what's included, most of it is things that are complimentary for a Platinum. Typically it is internet access, newspaper, and fitness center. At least Hyatt gives Diamonds a reduced resort fee in recognition of this. SPG doesn't seem to. But on my recent 5-night award stay, where I paid the full resort fee, I received no SPG points for the $157 in resort fees. Is there a policy about that? It doesn't make sense to me since it's revenue to the hotel and taxable by the state, it seems like it ought to accrue SPG points.
