The Red Lion was a downtown restaurant where Rochester’s movers and shakers met to eat, drink and frequently hash out business and political deals. The business began in one of Rochester’s best-known buildings and later moved – begrudgingly – to a brand-new skyscraper just a half-mile east. The original restaurant was run by a group that included a former boxer who later became a town supervisor in Wayne County. Squabbles that forced the Red Lion to move filled news accounts for months. Two separate farewell parties were held after the initial closing date was “postponed.” A suburban version of the restaurant was on Monroe Avenue in Brighton, but this story is about the better-known downtown spot.

Checking out of a hotel seems like a simple enough process, but it can sometimes trip up even experienced travelers — especially if it involves stumbling around at dawn to stuff everything in a suitcase and make an early flight. Below are a few common mistakes people make during hotel checkout; avoid them, and you’ll save yourself time, money and stress. 1. Failing to double-check your bill Hotels are notorious for tacking on hidden fees. While some are unavoidable, you’ll want to scan your bill for anything that looks fishy — such as charges for snacks or drinks when you didn’t touch the minibar, or a dinner in the hotel restaurant that was charged to the wrong room number.
