It's not appropriate to use in for a place. So it's option A.

''At'' uses for specific place or point.

While ''In''' used for city, country alike something big.

"At" is used when you are at the top, bottom, or end of something; at a specific address; at a general location; and at a point.

"In" is used in space, small vehicle, water, neighborhood, city, and country.

I think there should be 'at the hotel'. Becouse, here we talk about a particular hotel. The charges cannot be exorbitant for all hotels.
