HOTEL RESORT FEES

With Caesars Entertainment having abandoned its previously vocal "no resort fees" policy, and the formerly resort-fee free downtown area now having also jumped on the bandwagon, there are few remaining havens for those guests who will not pay a mandatory nightly surcharge on principal.

At the time of this writing (3/14), these are the hotels we know of that are not charging a resort fee: Platinum (non-gaming, non-smoking property); Element (non-gaming, non-smoking property in Summerlin); Elara (Hilton Grand Vac. tower, formerly part of Planet Hollywood, also non-gaming but PH casino is adjacent); Clarion; Cannery/Eastside Cannery; California; Fremont; Main Street Station; and Four Queens. In addition, Treasure Island (TI) and JW Marriott charge an optional resort fee -- check what's included and whether it's cheaper for you to pay for amenities à la carte or to pony up for the inclusive resort fee.
