Hotel Fees On The Rise

(CNN)--Many hotels are now piling on a slew of hidden fees for services that used to be free.

Guests are getting charged for everything from access to a gym or a pool... to early check-ins or departures.

It doesn't matter if you take advantage of some of those amenities: You'll still pay for having the option to use them.

And the fees are adding up.

A recent study by a New York University dean shows U-S hotels are on track to bring in a record one-point-eight-billion dollars in fees and surcharges this year.

That's up 80 percent from a decade ago.
