So, apparently, Ocean AC resort/casino will hop on the resort fee bandwagon when they open:

If a player like yourself is charged Resort Fees, they will be open a shorter time than Revel was.

Resort Fees have infested hotels across the country and most donít have casinos attached to allow a player to bypass them.

I await an offer from Ocean AC -- I still cannot find out if, in the purchase, they gained access to the former list of players and their tier levels - I was the highest tier level at Revel - but, since this is a new place, not sure they will know or care enough to send me a comp offer

So, I give them $20 and they give me "free" wifi? That's special.

Why single out Ocean ?

They all do it now. And $20 is on the cheap side.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I can't get over the idea that they take my money and then return services to me for "free". So, my money bought me...?

it's a big deal if the fee here is unavoidable. nobody charges a resort fee to high-level players' card holders, almost nobody charges a resort fee on a comped room. If this $20 really applies to *all* reservations, then this is a large step in the wrong direction.

Because Ocean is about to open (supposedly) so I am letting everyone know that they have jumped on the resort fee train

I HATE resort fees just as much as everyone else. But it burns a little less if they actually include something of value.

A non-casino resort I recently stayed at had a $20 resort fee that included:

- Two bottles of water when your room is cleaned
- $10 daily dry cleaning credit
- $10 daily Spa Credit
- USA Today or Wallstreet Journal delivered to your room
- Pool/Gym/WiFi Access
- A bucket of balls at the resort golf course driving range
- Shuttle Service

That is almost worth it, but I would rather be given the option to opt out all together.

By far the stupidest resort fee policy I have ever seen is with CET. The resort fee includes WiFi, so if you are a Diamond member and get the resort fee waived, you have to pay for WiFi access. WTF?? CET really knows how to treat their mid-high rollers.

No - although you have to go through the pay process (bill to room) when a Diamond member at CET, no charges will show up on for it on your room - there is no resort fee or WiFi fee for Diamond (per my recent stay at The Cromwell)

Thanks I will try that next time. Iím pretty sure that hasnít always been the case in AC but maybe Iím wrong.
