PLM World 2015 registration deposit

I registered for PLM World last week.  The hotel already charged me $159.19 for a deposit fee.

If you read the fine print on the registration form it does have a statement regarding deposits.

 

I have traveled around the world and have stayed in literally thousands of hotels and have NEVER had a hotel charge me a deposit fee 2 months in advance of my stay.  I have contacted the hotel to inquire about this but have not heard back yet.

I want users to be aware of this beforehand. 

 

I am going to have a hard time getting this expense report through approval

hmm... not good. This will cause grief with expenses reports, as paying in advance for hotel stay is not accepted here either.

 

Thanks for sharing the info !

I don't know, I've always had to pay one night in advance for the last several years when booking my room for the PLM Connections.  I think this goes back to the first year we held this evet in Las Vegas.  It's never messed up my expense reports as the final invoice that you get when you check-out indicates the total charges for your stay, including the pre-paid night.  Granted, the idea of having to tie-up your money for a couple of months is a bummer, but...
