    The confirmation say the getaway has a $25/night resort fee but doesn't say anything about regular exchanges. I did a short stay and was charged the 25/night. The girl at the desk says the fee applies to all exchanges. Has anyone stayed there lately and can confirm they were charged the resort fee? Thanks

    I was there in April on an exchange and didn't have to pay a per night fee.

    I'm pretty sure it was you that caught the fee on the getaway's. I would assume you would have caught it on the Short Stay also. If it wasn't disclosed when you booked it, then you should fight it. Too bad nothing available to exchange into now to see what is being listed.

    LMD: The language when you check out as a getaway clearly states getaways are charged.
    "REQUIRED RESORT CHARGES
    REQUIRED SURCHARGES (energy, accommodations/occupancy tax, bed tax, fees or other miscellaneous) ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE OCCUPANT AND ARE PAYABLE DIRECTLY TO THE RESORT. Surcharges are subject to change without notice. Getaway purchase has nightly resort fee: USD 25. "

    Pedro47 - where the money is going....maybe the question may get a better answer in the Hyatt forum??

    It was a short stay and NOT a getaway. When I inquired at the desk she said ALL exchanges pay the resort fee. I will see if I can get ahold of anyone at the resort to clear it up.

    Just read the Hyatt forum on resort fees.

    So these new resort fees are to cover such things as swimming pools, sauas, hot tubs, lawn care. maint etc.

    This year 2019. Hotels & Resorts are Estimated to collect over $2.4 Billion Dollars in these new Resort Fees..

    What a rip, after Fifty Years in the hotel industry; how were all these hotels & resorts able to operate without these daily resort fees and still made a Huge Profit. IMHO..

    I always thought Maintenance fees covered those issues. Why the extra charges from exchangers?

    Resorts that have separate resort fees don't appeal to me. I agree with the above poster and dislike being nickel'd and dime'd when those costs are already covered by maintenance fees.
