For the record

Hotel fees: In the Sept. 22 Business section, an article about the increasing revenue collected by hotels from guest fees was accompanied by a photo of a bellman at the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne, Fla. The photo caption said hotels were charging extra for such services as luggage storage. No hotel in the Ritz-Carlton chain charges guests a fee to have bell staff store luggage.

Kamala Harris: An article in the Sept. 24 Business section about California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris’ working on a settlement with banks on wrongful foreclosures identified Liz Ryan Murray as chair of Americans for Financial Reform. Although that is correct, she said she was speaking on behalf of National People’s Action, another group to which she belongs. An earlier correction gave the wrong date for the article.

Jane Lynch memoir: In the Sept. 18 Arts & Books section, a review of actress Jane Lynch’s memoir “Happy Accidents” misidentified the book’s title as “Happy Endings.”

“Ben-Hur”: A Sept. 26 Calendar section article about a new DVD and Blu-ray release of the 1959 film “Ben-Hur” described the title character, played by Charlton Heston, as a Palestinian nobleman. The character Ben-Hur was a Jew from Judea who lived long before the place now known as Palestine was given that name.


“Posing Beauty”: In the Sept. 25 Image section, an article on the “Posing Beauty” photo exhibition at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art said the museum is closed on days when the USC football team plays at home. While that was previously the case, the museum is now open on game days.
