This is one of the reasons I am thrilled to be self employed.

i also do not understand the ‘ I will never pay a resort fee’ attitudes. As long as you tell me, in advance, what I am paying then I can make an informed decision and i am fine with it.
No kidding. Stupid policies trumping common sense are all to common, especially in companies with loads of red tape. I got in trouble for using hotwire instead of concur and saving several grand; glad I'm not there anymore.

Regarding resort fees - if they are mandatory, they should be shown in the upfront price. I absolutely hate clicking in to a hotel rate and then seeing it jump at the end. Then I need to sum up the total, go back to the search page and compare. They are deceptive.
