Hilton is accused of drip pricing, a practice in which hotels hide part of the nightly rate from consumers by burying it in the fine print later in the booking process.
This practice is common at big hotel chains in the US and it is already the second lawsuit within a short time frame against Hilton.
Often this “resort fees” are used to offer standard service such as WiFi or the use of a fitness center for example an can be as high as 20% of the hotel price.
Maybe we will see this “fees” vanish in the near future which would be more than fair in order to know about the nightly rate right away.
