Yes, it was the Aladdin. The amenities are not accurate on Hotwire. The amenities listed are: Pool(s) Property offers at least one pool area; hours and dates of operation may be seasonal. Laundry Facilities (self-service) Free Breakfast. I did not see any onsite laundry facilities. The hot tub has been sealed up, now it's just an extra room. There is free internet, but not mentioned. Perhaps because it's not reliable? The details for the 2* hotel do not specify which Best Western it is but I believe we drove by another one just over the bridge close to McDonalds, also in Kelso. I wouldn't be surprised if we pay for a 2.5* accomodation but actually get a 2*. For audit purposes, I must assume every retailer in North America must account for all their earnings, charges, and taxes individually. Lumping the taxes and any other charges may be discretionary but details should be provided when asked or challenged. Some ignorant people may accept this practice of taking everything at face value as being in order, but in my experience I have seen countless of examples where there is fraud and it is only discovered during random audits. This is why I believe legally and for accounting purposes, the retailer must show it separately in their books and to Uncle Sam (IRS). Afterall, Uncle Sam and local state governments must verify that they're charging, collecting the correct amount for the applicable taxes and not just pocketing it. Who knows if HW is suppose to reimburse the hotel or directly to the IRS the taxes they collected. Simply put, it is clearly not logical to accept at face value that any establishment is charging the correct amount of taxes. The usual way businesses get audited is when there is a complaint that they're being overcharged on taxes. With HW, we have no idea what the tax rate(s) they are using and what the recovery or HW's surcharge is. Put it another way, would you just accept a separate line on a bill you receive, say, for car repairs, where it says: other charges? Wouldnt you question it? I really am dumbfounded. Why the secrecy and rationalizing of their actions is beyond my comprehension. I had a separate thread on the matter and you moved it here. Do you think people will know to go to this thread and learn how HW is not revealing how they calculate their charges. Your visitors to your site have a right to know, unless you're trying to hide something? I believe any any reasonable person would want to know how the charges they are being billed for are calculated. I shall be writing a letter to the IRS and advising them of my concerns and also to the Better Business Bureau because the BBB has a badge on HW's site.
