telegraph complains,

I hate 'first class' hotels. Every time you turn around, someone has a hand out expecting a tip. They expect $5 or $10 for walking you to your room and turning on the light, and maybe opening the blinds.....

The restaurants are twice the normal price and breakfast will set you back $20. Oh, but you might get a freebie USA Today outside your door! WOrse, half of them only have 8 channels on the TV and not Fox Cable Channel. CNN and local broadcast stations and the movies they try to sell you for $12.95 each.

I guess you have to stay at a downmarket motel to get the FOX channel.
