I have to say that I've been staying in hotels recently and experienced none of these pet peeves. Hotels are jumping on the bandwagon to provide more B&B like amenities, and then some, and more complimentary services to remain competitive in this economy.

I haven't stayed yet but will and have already been informed of resort fees that cover my free WiFi. Snort. $25/person/day for breakfast. No guarantee I will get the room I booked. And, because I've been to this city before, I know the TV stations are non-existant. It's all local news and nothing else but the hotel channel.

hmmm...depends as usual. Like B&Bs, we can't assume that everything is or isn't included in the rate.
Well, we're booked to go to York, England and the hotel does charge for Internet (but I can use any number of free WiFi places close by) and parking. Parking is always at a premium over there. If we hire a car, we'll park it in the public car park across the street for half the price. Everything else is included, along with tea and cookies and bottled water (gas & no gas) in the room and a daily paper. There's a fantastic buffet breakfast included in the rate every day so I will have to walk a lot while we're there!

Parking in the UK is usually included but I know they charge in York because of spaces and land being at a premium with it being enclosed in a walled city (ie hard to make more parking) in Harrogate a couple of the big hotels charge (holiday i n n and the Majestic) but no one else does (big or small) mainly cos policing it would cost more than you would make.
