This NYC Hotel Has a $30 ‘Curation Fee’

Made Hotel in New York City has caught attention for giving its resort fee an unusual name — “curation fee.”
Guests must pay an extra $30 per night for amenities — regardless of whether they use them — like coffee, Wi-Fi, and a glass of house wine (available from 5 pm to 6 pm). They also get gym access and can borrow a bike.
Made Hotel didn’t respond to Skift’s requests for comment but a front desk employee explained that the charge was for the hotel’s “curative experience.”
“Most people call it a resort fee, but curation, I confess, I have not heard that before,” said Vijay Dandapani, CEO and president of the Hotel Association of New York City. “It’s a neat word I might add.”
