Resort-Fee Hotels

Resort fees are supplemental daily charges tacked onto room rates, but often not included in the quoted or advertised charge for the room. Instead, the fees are added to the rate per day and paid on check-out.

 

They're ostensibly charged to cover access to some facilities (pool, fitness room, business center) and for the phone, Internet access, coffee maker, bottled water, newspaper, and hotel shuttle. 

 

These fees have created an enormous amount of ill-will toward hotels by consumers, who (rightly) believe that they're "hidden" charges. They can be surprising, and confusing, to guests who haven't run across them before, when they see charges up to $35 per day they weren't expecting on their bill.

 

Consumer advocates have suggested that if hotels want or need to raise room rates, they should simply raise them. If they want to include wifi, bottled water, newspapers, and other non-essentials in a low rate, they can create and market packages that include them as optional add-ons. (To read an industry rationale for resort fees, click here.)

 

All that said, resort fees are here to stay in Las Vegas. They range from $10 to around $35 and they've gone up a few percentage points per year for the past several years. The following table lists the fees and what you receive for them in return. Make sure you add them into the room rate, so you know exactly what you'll pay when you check out.

    no resort fees
    You should have a list of those LV hotel/casinos that do NOT have a resort fee, for those who want to "boycott" those that do. It won't be a long list

    No coupon book offered and no deals at the Luxor for resort fees 3/17. Sometimes offered $20 beverage credit is useless unless it would be for coffee or tea? Every drink in Vegas requires a TIP.

    Resort Fee Logic Flawed
    The logic, that the reason to charge a resort fee, is because the OTAs force them to do this is ridicules.  If the OTAs are making it necessary to charge this fee just to break even, then only charge the fee to the rooms sold by the OTAs.  I am not drawn to a specific Casino/Hotel for the amenities it claims are available.  I am not able or even interested in using the supposed amenities.  I reserve a room with the Casino/Hotel directly, therefore, no reason to charge me a fee.  Simple, charge what the room costs, the resort fee is unnecessary,  The only amenity I use is the video poker machines, and last time I checked, I pay for that!

    I believe the M resort is now charging a resort fee.
