    I hate when hotels charge resort fees. Resort fees are basically a way to artificially raise the cost of hotel stays, given that many people don't pay attention to the "fine print." And I never really understood resort fees either. If I'm to stay at a resort, shouldn't my room include the amenities of the hotel, rather than there being an extra, standardized fee which covers things like towels at the pool, etc. It's the hotel equivalent of airline fuel surcharges. If I'm paying for a plane ticket, shouldn't the cost of that ticket include fuel? But I also get why hotels charge resort fees. Because any resort that doesn't charge one would instantly be at a disadvantage. When people are comparing rates they'd be comparing the rates of one hotel with a resort fee to another hotel without a resort fee. So it's really tough for hotels to break the resort fee "cycle."
