Today’s tip comes out of a tweet shared by Richard Kerr of Award Travel 101:
A hotel brand telling its own guests to go to the front desk and ask for the ridiculous resort fees to be waived. SMH pic.twitter.com/rjiUNaPP03

In addition to Richard’s take, there’s a tip worth acknowledging here, which is that—according to Kimpton, a popular hotel brand—the front desk agreeing to waive your resort fee is “always a possibility.” Apparently, all you need to do is ask. It’s well-known that resort fees and the like can get outrageously expensive. It probably won’t work often with major hotels but it’s worth a try.
If this or something similar has ever worked for you, please share you story in the comments below.
