Did you stay at a Marriott group hotel and paid more than the original quoted price because of unexpected fees?
When consumers browse for hotels, they often rely on the room rates displayed online when making a decision. Although a number of reasonable fees and taxes are expected, most customers may assume that they will pay around the posted rate for their room.
However, many hotels tack on additional fees which can go by a number of names:
- Resort fees
- Amenity fees
- Destination Fees
Marriott hotels have been hit with a class action lawsuit alleging that they charged customers unfair fees which raise the room rate significantly higher than the posted price.
Some of the Marriott hotels that may have charged unexpected fees includes:
- Marriott Hotels
- Courtyard Marriott
- Four Points by Sheraton
- SpringHill Suites
- Fairfield Inn & Suites
- Residence Inn
- St. Regis
- JW Marriott
- W Hotels
- Marriott Vacation Club
- Delta Hotels|Marriott
- Le MERIDIEN
- Renaissance Hotels
- Gaylord Hotels
- AC Hotels
- Aloft Hotels
- Moxy Hotels

Marriott Group Hotels Unexpected Fees
The practice of charging additional fees on top of the quoted price is known as “Drip Pricing.” Drip pricing schemes reportedly aim to hide a portion of a room’s cost by directing that cost into seemingly reasonable fees.
This may be done through charging “resort” fees, “amenity” fees, or “destination” fees. Unlike other fees and taxes, these fees allegedly do not cover the cost of any amenity or service. Instead, these fees reportedly make up part of the room’s base price.
Through drip pricing, hotels are able to advertise their room rates as significantly lower than they actually are. This practice deceives consumers into believing that they are being offered a reasonable price when the true price is allegedly hidden in added fees.
Marriott Hotel Fees Class Action Lawsuits
Attorneys general from Nebraska and Washington, D.C. filed lawsuits against Marriott and other hotels alleging that they used deceptive drip pricing to take advantage of consumers and force them to pay a higher price for their rooms.
“This is a straightforward price deception case,” the D.C. attorney general’s hotel fee lawsuit against Marriott says.
Regulators from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have been looking into the hotel fees and trying to combat them for a number of years. In 2012 and 2013, the FTC sent out over two dozen warning letters to hotels and travel booking websites alleging misrepresented pricing.
“While a hotel reservation site may break down the components of the reservation estimate, most prominent figure for consumers should be the total inclusive estimate,” the FTC said in its letters.
