Why I Was Not Thrilled With the Holiday Inn Lisbon – Continental Hotel Property

The Aeroporto station of the Metropolitano de Lisboa was closed without explanation when I arrived at Lisbon Airport. Instead of the short ride to the Holiday Inn Lisbon – Continental at which I was staying, I had to figure out an alternate way to get to the hotel property — and after assessing all of my options, I decided to walk from the airport terminal to the hotel property, which consumed approximately 75 minutes.

Win a Hotel Room at the Chicago Seminars — Courtesy of the Delta Points Weblog

René — author of the Delta Points weblog at BoardingArea — has an extra hotel room available at the Holiday Inn Chicago-Elk Grove, which is the official host hotel for the Chicago Seminars during the weekend from October 12 through October 14, 2012. He could not use the extra room and graciously offered it to me, but I had already secured lodging for that weekend. He then came up with the idea that he should give the hotel room reservation away as a prize and asked me how to let FlyerTalk members know about it. I offered to publicize his generosity here at The Gate, hoping that a FlyerTalk member can benefit. Delta Points will cover the cost of the room for Friday and Saturday night, October 12 and 13, 2012 — and this includes tax. However…

Ridiculous hotel charges

I’ve come across some crazy hotel charges in my travels, but the new Holiday Inn in Baton Rouge deserves ridicule for taking it to a new level.  The charge?  How about a (compulsory) service fee for their new lobby?  What ridiculous hotel charges have you come across?
