"Extra adult charge"????????? (rant)
Anyone ever see that?? Was looking at the new FFI in dowtown Baltimore.
At any rate (AAA, Sr, Full rate), if you put in 2 adults it slaps on an extra 10 bucks per night to the rate.....(but, "children MAY be exempt"). So...for 2 adults in a room with either 1 OR 2 beds, they want an extra 10 bucks.
THAT is ridiculous...especially when it is NOT on a weekend...at 199 a night...for only TWO adults.....
Can we say CHEAP?????????
Never saw that in my life. If you want to charge more to cover food costs, then do it on a weekend...when it is OVER 2 people in a room...to Marriott rewards Nobodys....
You obviously don't travel in Europe and/or check for single occupancy. Reduced rates for singles is very common, especially in Germany.
In many European cities, the single rooms are often called "mother-in-law" rooms. They are much smaller than a normal double room. Not saying this is the case all the time but at least part of the time.

I agree with you 100%! I have been a Marriott plat since the early 90s and I just ran into this myself for the first time. I was looking to book the Mount Pleasant FI and I saw the same charge and description as you did.
This must be another recent "enhancement" by Marriott, ridiculous! I thought only the Motel 6s of the world did this in the US.
