Any way to get out of paying resort or valet fees at a Ritz? Booked a weekend using points and it’s a pricey $60 resort fee + $70 valet per day 😅 Trying to ball on a budget here.

I saw someone say that if the resort fee includes WiFi or something else that you should get for free because of your status then you can get it partially or fully removed.

Bonvoy rules say they need to provide an alternate amenity for any amenities that are already included with your elite status such as wifi. If it’s a low fee, I’ve generally just had them completely remove it.

Believe me I’m trying to get my Hyatt status.

not without paying a credit card fee (e.g. bonvoy brilliant gives u $300/yr in credits that can be applied to those charges). also, what ritz is this? those charges ARE expensive.

Don't park at the hotel, probably save $30 a night that way
