Just a rather unusual hotel billing story, the Westin in Las Vegas is hitting convention attendees with unexpected charges when the conference host (the one with the contract with the hotel!) didn’t pay.
The The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says they’re “not familiar with such a practice” and neither am I. The hotel apparently claims that language on the conference attendees bill says that participants are liable for charges other third parties do not pay, but that’s generally thought to refer to the hotel bill itself — the cahrges on the bill that the participant is signing — not undisclosed amounts for other services.
I don’t expect this one to stand.
