The question the OP asked was... what would you do?

Pay the bill, learn from the experience, and move on.

Some observations (as a wine professional):

Guests Shouldn't WONDER What They'll Get Upon Arrival

Agree. Not as bad, but reminds me of the Maui Sheraton not informing guests that their pool would be closed and reserved for use by a group.

Doesn't it seem obvious that any hotel that has a...

Thanks. Based on the underwhelming support for the Sheraton will most likely pass here on SPG too. The Park Hyatt looks great. Will also get a read on the classic old world Baur au Lac where I...

Zurich... Best Hotel?

There are 2 Starwood hotels... the Sheraton in town and the Four Points which seems newer in the suburbs. Which do you think is best? Saw some discouraging posts for the Sheraton, and the 4P is a...

Probably right. Still, this is pretty excessive. I've stayed at the Ritz in MSY (just ok) and $20k for a 4 night stay is crazy, I don't care how much money you've got. Can buy a car for that. ...

Agreed. Their approach is laughable for such an early stage of software development ("alpha" group).

I've never seen a company charge for help. What are they thinking?

You're exactly right. Their pricing is so aggressive it trumps the fact that they may be paying a bit more than the rest of the USA (see examples a few posts above)... minimized more on the...

Please Clarify...

Thanks for the update.

I realize that you tried to find a closer alternative yourself... outside of the hotel's effort... when you were put in this unfortunate position.

To help clarify the...

Very High Pricing

The OP admits that he realizes he should have looked at the menu, and takes full responsibility... and the waitperson did offer a choice of cabernets. I think we've all been in a situation, where...

Think you summed it up nicely. Would have been nice to hear from the OP... perhaps under a gag order as part of his settlement. Agree with you/others who stated they would have never accepted a 60...

That begs the question... what happens if they contact the guest in advance and say they can't accommodate them? What is the hotel's responsibility?

New Hotel... Delayed Opening

Was wondering if a Starwood hotel accepts a reservation for a new hotel and the hotel has a delay in opening whereby they cannot honor the reservation... what happens in this case. Is...

Am I missing something? Why not just call the hotel and cancel directly... just get a cancel number and/or name of the agent, etc. [Even better, record the call]. If the hotel location warrants an...

Platinum 500 Point Amenity?

While I realize one should not expect a Platinum upgrade while staying at the Villas, is a Platinum member entitled to the 500 point Plat amenity? I assume you receive SPG points for meals charged...

60%?... Really? Really??

What does that mean? Were there only 5 check-ins that day and 3 were Platinum? Given a larger sample size, 60% Platinum is really hard to believe. It seems that some front desk people like to...

You've stayed 23 times (assuming no AX cc credits) and you don't see any value in staying 2 more times before the end of the year?

Do yourself a favor and make 2 more stays... I don't think you'll...
