Nickle and dimed

When we drove up they said it was $27 for parking. I though, oh, I wish I would have known that. But at least valet was the same, so we valeted the car. When we were checking in, in addition to the $27 per night for parking, they also told us about an $11 per day amenities charge. I asked him what was included, he said complementary bikes to rent, pool Jacuzzi and a couple other things. I asked, "Well, what if I won't be using any of those features?" He said it was a mandatory charge. Urg. OK. We got up to our room and I was not surprised to see a minibar with many things to purchase but I was very surprised to see a few $5 bottles of Evian in the room...so...they're charging $5 for a bottle of water that I'm sure they're paying 25¢ for. It all just really irritated me. Also, the grounds and building was really loud. I had to sleep with the air-conditioning on all night, just to muffle the sound. Thin walls I guess.
