Yeah, that's different than mis-charging a room rate or adding a few extra bucks for F&B onto your bill. Seems like it's more about not understanding (or as you said laziness) how some of the...

If you're not checked in, I would think that's a big exception to allow lounge access, as you'd have to code a key card. If you are allowed to check in early, then they've granted you access -- that...
