          Hello. We've stayed here in the past and agree it is a terrific place. This time around we plan on using Starwood points but want to know about the bill. At other SPG properties when using points, there are additional hotel/resort fees and taxes. I've been told all fees are included but have a hard time believing. Do you happen to still have your bill and if so, does it show the fees and taxes you could share? Thanks, Jay
