Does it do what you want?

There is no need for three variables here. You only need one to represent
room cost. If you make that change then you will also not need to
initialize the room cost variable. Makes the code simpler to maintain and

If you use one variable for room cost then you can use just one print just
above the room tax line.

The print function always returns None. Therefore the effect of this
statement is to assign None to GT. Also note that you don't use GT later on.
