Flew to Montreal

In Toronto we were upgraded to a suite in the Royal York Hotel which was brilliant apart from the works going on one night at the Union Station across the road which were very noisy and the hotel was very apologetic. I was not expecting to have to pay for our two checked bags when we flew on to Tampa. You hadn't said anything about this when I booked.
