Las Vegas How To Get Hotels Discounts

Las Vegas Hotels with No Resort Fee


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.

Just checked the Golden Nugget-sounded perfect; but when you get to the enter your credit card info, turns out there IS a $20 per person per night resort fee.

Admin:  Golden Nugget does not charge a resort fee. However, all reservations will incur a daily $5 Downtown Destination Fee

$20/night + tax resort fee at Golden Gate.

Just checked the Golden Nugget website and it says you have to pay a "Destination fee" of $5.65 per accommodation, per night. Sounds like a resort fee to me. Or is it something that all hotels charge usually?

Admin:  They are not calling it a resort fee but rather a Fremont Street Experience maintenance fee. It's one of those "if it walks like a duck and quarks like a duck" fees.

The El Cortez DOES charge a Resort Fee now. They advertise in bold-face type that they don't, and when you make a reservation you won't see one on your confirmation, but when they give you your final bill you will notice a $10 "Fee" added to the taxes for each night. I guess since they don't call it... read more »

Admin:  Thanks for bringing it to our attention. As of Feb.1, El Cortez added an Amenities Fee of $8.95. This something new.

There actually was a law suit over the resort fees back in the early 2000's, when the fee was only about $4 a day, because there was NO notice or fine print AT ALL until you checked in and were told. I believe all this c*** is now in tiny print somewhere. If it's not, perhaps it's time for another... read more »

When I asked what that fee was for they told me it was a mandatory, no... read more »
