According to Market Watch, the hotel industry is projected to see $2.7 billion in surcharges in 2017, up from $2.55 billion in 2016 as reported by New York University's Jonathan M. Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism.

So the next time you're checking out, you might wanna take a closer look at your hotel bill.

You might start to see charges for things like 'wi-fi', and resort fees that can cover anything from using the pool to 'complimentary' coffee or newspapers.

When booking your next hotel it might be smarter to reserve a more expensive room rather than a basic economy one that could end up costing more!
