Hotel rate higher than per diem rate

I am trying to submit an expense report and I am receiving the following error:

The nightly rate for one or more nights of your hotel stay exceeded the lodging per diem rate. You may reduce your reimbursement to the per diem rate or select an appropriate Travel Expense Justification to be reimbursed for the full amount (subject to approval).


The hotel per diem rate is $96.00 per night and my paid rate was $98.00.  This hotel was where all meeting attendees were staying.  I've entered in the justification that same statement.  How do I get rid of this error without conceding to adjusting the hotel rate?

@acfthomson  I looked at your report and you need to use the Justification field, highlighted in my screenshot. You will need to do this for all three nights.
