Whats up with these fees, which are apparently not always charged at the hotel? 
For PDX next week (Nov 28, 2017), express deal 4.5* downtown/psu $96 and Additional Mandatory Fee:$23.06. If you don't notice this fee you could over pay. Often better to pay higher price express or name your own on a property not adding mandatory fee. Thoughts?

Additional fees are charged by the hotel regardless of what Priceline service you use.
Please place all of your Priceline bids through our Priceline link.
Please check rates at Hotwire and make your bookings through our Hotwire link.
