Looking at Akron, OH and found a 3* in Zone A Check In: 8/15 Check Out: 8/16. Hotwire lists this hotel, which has a Fitness Center, Pool, High Speed Net, & Dining for $65 and claims the list price is $98. But when you add in Tax recovery, charges, and fees of $30.81 you're at $95.81. That's right, the fees are almost 50% of the cost of the hotel room. You've got to be kidding me. Meanwhile for the same dates in the same zone, a 3.5 * (replace net access with business center) is going for $116 with taxes and fees of $20.78. IMHO, unless there is some bizarre local tax, Hotwire is ripping people off on the first one.
