Travel writer Christopher Elliott would like to see Hawaii’s infamous “resort fees” go. And he doesn’t mince words, calling the mandatory fees unfair, unethical and unconscionable. From Elliott’s blog: “The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Maui charges an eye-popping $25 per day mandatory resort fee. So does Mauiâ€™s Grand Wailea Resort.” Some resorts that don’t charge the fees include the Four Seasons Manele Bay Hotel, the Hotel Hana Maui and the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa.
