Over the years the number one complaint from Las Vegas visitors has been airport taxi scams. Today very few people talk about the I-215 tunnel taxi scam. Currently, the number one Las Vegas visitor complain is Las Vegas hotel resort fee.
What is a resort fee you ask!. Resort fees are surcharges imposed by hotels to cover everything from local phone calls, daily newspaper to guest use of the gym. You are required to pay these fees whether you use those services or not. Ethically such fees should be included in the advertised room rate rather than tacked on to the final bill making you believe their rooms are cheaper than they actually are.
Imagine, finding and booking a room for $59 /night only to find out that the hotel plans to collect an extra $15 a day plus tax in resort fees. Instead of your 3 day stay costing $180 plus a 12% hotel tax, you are billed $180 + $45 + 12% hotel tax.
Are the resort fees unethical? Yes. Are they illegal? Unfortunately No, as long as it is disclosed. In most cases you will need help finding the fine print.
