Room Rates at Omni Hotels
October 2020: An amended complaint was filed adding allegations that the named plaintiff was looking for hotel rooms on Expedia, which is where Omni allegedly deceptively marketed its hotel rooms.
September 2020: This case was transferred from state court to federal court. (Case No. 20-cv-1777, S.D. Cal.)
July 2020: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Omni Hotels and Resorts for allegedly engaging in drip pricing. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that the hotel advertises a low base rate for hotel rooms without disclosing that consumers end up paying more than the advertised rate for rooms because they are charged additional fees in addition to the base rate. (Charbonnet et al v. Omni Hotels and Resorts et al, Case No. 37-2020-00026981, California State Court – San Diego)
