It sounds very unreasonable that they would charge extra. Feels like discrimination. I've stayed at many hotels over weekends, and I'm sure many others have the same experience; no one ever makes a big deal about opening up the room.

Yup, never had an issue. I'd complain to corporate without a doubt.

Thanks. With thanks to DDF, I have become an expert (like all of you) at complaining to corporate!

and if he's applying ridiculous policies you can't complain to corporate?

Well then he should be ashamed of himself, charging $75 for religious jews, who are trying to keep shabbos.

Very helpful. Thank you.  I have made a dummy reservation under a different name for next weekend and then forwarded the confirmation with the following email message (sent from an email account with a name that's not my own) with the following query:
---
"Dear Crowne Plaza Stamford Staff,

I am looking forward to spending next weekend at your property.  As an observant Jew, I do not use electricity on the Sabbath, from sundown Friday through nightfall Saturday.  As such, I would like to ask if a staff member from the hotel would be able to escort me to my room when I return from Synagogue on Friday night and on Saturday afternoon, and open the door for me.  Will there be any additional charge for this assistance?

Thank you for your consideration."
---

I will let you all know what they say.  If they indicate that there is a fee as you note below, then I'll need to decide whether just to go frum-incognito (I don't look so frum anyway) or to cancel altogether.  I can't see paying a $75 fee when the nightly room rate is ~$35!  Thanks again.
Any update?

If anyone decides not to use his reservation for Stamford or maybe Danbury,
I'm quite happy to take it over. Please PM. TIA.

I never received a response from the CP Stamford. I waited one week and then cancelled that sham reservation. Pretty lame not to reply to the email, but whatever.

I'll still plan to keep my real reservation in April. I don't plan to notify them in advance of my need for a staff member to escort me to my room -- I'll just do that on Friday night or Saturday morning on my way out to shul.  I'll let  you all know how it goes....

For this weekend (Feb 25th), March 4th, 11th, or 18th weekends. Also April 1st and maybe 8th. Reservations starting on Thursdays are even better. Last time around I made a few reservations which I ended up cancelling. I am hoping someone else will be doing the same this time.

I would have forwarded the cancellation confirmation to them explaining that I cancelled because they did not bother to respond.

Almost worthless list this time.
