Compliance Guide – California Fee Transparency Laws

This year, the California Legislature passed two measures designed to increase the transparency of displayed prices. The first measure, Senate Bill 478 (Dodd, 2023) regulates the display of all prices and, generally, mandates inclusion of all fees in the advertised price, excluding government assessed taxes and fees. The second measure, Assembly Bill 537 (Berman, 2023), requires hotels to advertise the total price to be paid to stay at a hotel or other lodging accommodation, excluding government taxes and fees. These measures apply to both hotels and short-term rentals and will create a clearer price comparison for consumers choosing between short-term rentals and traditional lodging establishments.
