When you go to an upscale hotel, you won’t be able to buy a meal

  • August 25, 2021

4 Five-star hotels in the US are offering to reimburse guests who can’t afford a meal at their hotels.

Five-Star Hotels and Resorts (WSHR), a subsidiary of Marriott International, has a list of hotels that will reimburse diners who can afford to eat at their restaurants.

You can find the full list here.

This includes all the big names such as Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyvis, and many others.

However, the list only covers hotels that are currently operating.

It doesn’t include smaller and independent hotels. 

Some of the hotels listed include the Four Seasons and the Marriot, two of the oldest hotels in America.

This list was compiled by FourFourtwo reporter Amanda Larkin.

Five-Star hotels will also reimburse diner’s who don’t have room in their rooms. 

There is no set number of dollars an establishment will pay.

Restaurants and bars are exempt from this rule.

For example, the Five- Star hotel chain, Marriott International has a policy that allows diners to pay up to $200 for meals, which is a fraction of the cost of a standard meal. 

If you can’t get to the hotel, the hotels will still reimburse you. 

They will reimburse you up to a maximum of $20 for each meal.

It’s not clear whether these are refundable, or the hotel will have to pay you the full amount. 

WSHL said the reimbursements are designed to make it easier for diners at hotels to pay for meals and to allow for them to avoid unnecessary trips to a restaurant. 

“In addition, the policy is designed to enable hoteliers to offer an additional incentive for guests to spend money at the hotel.

These additional incentives may include, but are not limited to, complimentary use of the restaurant’s lounges and dining areas, the hotel’s own complimentary gift cards, or special discounts on hotel services, such as discounted rates or complimentary hotel stays,” the WSHL website states. 

To avoid paying the full $20, the restaurants can also pay the hotels to cover the rest of their costs.

For instance, an establishment could reimburse guests for their room costs. 

The policy does not apply to the cost per person, but it does apply to meal costs, and the restaurants could still charge the same. 

According to a WSHR spokesperson, they will work with hotels to provide additional incentives. 

This is part of the same trend where hoteliers are trying to provide more of a reason for diner to go to restaurants rather than going out to eat, the spokesperson said. 

One thing you can do to make sure you’re not paying for more than you should is to ask your hotel to provide a receipt or photo ID at the register.

You may also ask your server if you can bring in some food to share.

How to avoid the Trump administration’s collusion scandals

  • July 30, 2021


I’m happy to be back on the site again.

I’ve done more work this year than I’ve ever done before, and I hope you’re as excited as I am to continue doing this work.

But here’s what we know: I’ve written an article on the collusion scandal that you should check out.

That article was written in January, when the Mueller probe was still in its early stages.

I’d like to revisit it, and to do so with a couple of new points: 1.

The first point is that Mueller is a very good and qualified investigator.

In his first investigation, Mueller was able to identify a number of people who had contact with the Trump campaign, and who, it turned out, were also close to the Trump White House.

They were the Trump associates named in the indictment.

And Mueller was also able to get information that might have been helpful to his own investigation, which is why he’s been so critical of special counsel Robert Mueller.


I also think Mueller is doing a good job in his new role as special counsel.

The Mueller investigation is very complex, and he’s trying to do the best he can.

But he’s not perfect.

There are some people who are part of the team, and there are others who are just part of it.

So we don’t know who’s telling the truth and who’s lying.

And some of Mueller’s questions have been really good questions for the special counsel to answer, which has given Mueller an enormous amount of confidence in his ability to do that.

I would have liked to see the special prosecutor’s report on the Mueller investigation be released more quickly.


I think it’s important to remember that Mueller was appointed by Trump.

He has a very strong record of prosecuting the federal government, and of making sure the government doesn’t get too out of control.

And it’s also important to realize that Trump has been extraordinarily vindictive in his attacks on the special investigator, as you’ve seen with his tweets about Mueller.

The special counsel has been critical of Trump for a number months.

He’s also been critical at times of the special justice system.

I hope that’s going to be a strong case for the attorney general to support him in the next few weeks, given that the Mueller case is going to go before the court for a hearing, and we’re going to see whether Mueller can be held to account.

This is an important story.

It’s an important case, and it’s one that’s really important for American democracy.

I don’t think you can get it done without people stepping up and doing their jobs, and this special counsel is doing an excellent job.

I have to thank you all for reading this, and for letting me know that I was doing an outstanding job.

And I’m excited to return. Thank you.
