I was hoping you would mention few things about the parking spots as well. I learned to take this factor into account, I always check it after I learned this the hard way. For my summer vacation I am already booked at Gatwick hotel with parking, because having a safe parking space when I'm on holiday is an important deal for me.

Yes, hopefully this will raise the ratings of some hotels, as a tourist I am not a fan of this tax, we need some sense of fairness. I recently had the chance to get wet in Bali and it was an awesome experience, I wish I could have so much fun in our country too.

It was about time for this to happen. This kind of things should not happen, a lot of tourists have been complaining about it. I am relieved that I don't have use a hotel of this kind, I am booked for my summer vacation on Heathrow terminal 5 parking, there's no room for bad surprises there.
