How do "Early Departure Fees" work exactly?
If I booked a room for 4 nights, and I want to leave after 2 nights, and I have pre-paid for the 4 nights, will I still be charged early departure fees?
T & C from the hotel say:
Many Starwood hotels have an early departure fee. When you check-in, you will be asked to confirm your departure date. You may be able to change your departure date without a penalty if your rate plan permits and if you do so before the end of your arrival day. After reconfirming your departure date, if you decide to leave earlier, you may be charged the early departure fee. Please contact the hotel if you have any questions.
I am fine forfeiting the money as I understand that this is my fault if I booked for longer and left early, but my concern is
can they charge me additional fees for leaving early?
- Let's say I do not tell the front desk about my plans as even I am not sure of them
- This is for my upcoming trip.
