A Hotel in New York Fines Wedding Couples $500 For Every Guest Who Leaves a Bad Yelp Review?

Screen-Shot-2014-08-04-at-10.09.53-AM

The Union Street Guest House is a boutique hotel in Hudson, New York that HATES negative publicity. They even had a crazy policy to prevent it. But today, that policy is drawing them more negative publicity than they EVER could’ve imagined.

Apparently, when couples would book weddings at the hotel, they’d have to sign an agreement that allowed the hotel to fine them $500 for every bad review one of their guests posted online.

Quote, “If you have booked the Inn for a wedding and given us a deposit for guests to stay, there will be a $500 fine that will be deducted from your deposit for every negative review placed on any Internet site by anyone attending your wedding.”

Someone who posted a negative Yelp review of the hotel back in November wrote that the hotel emailed them twice, and threatened to fine their friends who got married unless they took the review down.

Anyway, people started talking about the policy online yesterday, and it led to a TON of negative publicity.

The hotel is in damage control mode, and offered up an excuse that, quote, “The policy was put on our site as a tongue-in-cheek response to a wedding many years ago. It was meant to be taken down long ago and certainly was never enforced.”
