Sorenson said, in an interview with LinkedIn Editor in Chief Dan Roth over the weekend, the lawsuit was “frustrating” because “we’ve been talking to the Attorneys General of many states for a number of years. D.C. withdrew, sort of at the last minute, and decided to make a bigger test case out of it. We’ll obviously fight it, we think it’s wrong. It’s well disclosed, and we’ll go through it.”

“You’ve got resort fees in hotels, baggage fees in airlines. None of us as consumers necessarily love it. What we’ve tried to do is be very transparent with disclosure,” Sorenson told LinkedIn. “Because from the first moment – when resort fees were first started a decade ago – they were a way of saying let’s fold in the waterfront, paddleboard rental, or the bike rental, or other things that are a part of the package.
