Did they charge you an additional currency conversion fee?  1.6171 is 3% over of 1.57. If they did not charge an additional 3%, you are paying what you should be paying.

Subject: [72attendees] Credit card charges at CityWest

I was looking at my receipts today and noticed that the CityWest hotel
charged me in US dollars for the accommodation. They did not charge me
in Euros. For the exchange rate, they conveniently picked 1.6171. The
actual conversion rate on Friday was 1.57.

I am not really sure why they didn't charge me in Euros. The
corresponding US dollar amount would have shown up on my credit card
statement anyway. For four nights of stay that came to $26 more.

Did anyone else experience this?

Vijay
