In other words, it was fully disclosed, you chose to accept it, and you now have no argument against its imposition. Unlike air carriers which are required to post the full price of a ticket, all in (and then provide a break down), no such requirement exists under federal or any state law, for hotels.

There are hundreds of threads on this topic on FT, including many relating specifically to Hilton. No need for yet another one. The answer is always the same:

1. You may dislike the fees and that is your choice. But, they are here to stay and their use is increasing. Finding places without them is increasingly hard and that leaves you with tougher decisions to make if you are prepared to boycott their use.

2. The time to make these decisions is prior to agreeing to pay the fees. If they bother you, do not book. Same as lengthy cancellation terms, and anything else that gives you heartburn.
