Did the resort fees just go up?

Or did they "add" something into the list of meaningless things you get for the resort fee?

I refuse to pay a fee for services I won't use.

I refuse to pay a fee to park a rental car in a city I have to pay to fly into.

Nevermore.

That's why I created a thread about "Why Vegas" as it seems it's not as great as it use to be. Forgot that you now have to pay to park in many of the strip casino's as well. Not sure what the resort fees are for some of the big casinos here in Reno, but I'm sure it's much less to none, and free parking.

Let's work on those airfares, and then I'll talk Reno! Even if I end up having to pay Resort Fees, still much cheaper for me to go to Vegas as an overall trip.

Resort fees I thought, were a way to AVOID a tax. Although their primary purpose is to allow a casino to get a First Page listing on any search engine using a low room price by calling it a Resort Fee rather than part of the room charges, it gets different treatment under the Nevada tax laws that take a very large bite out of all room rates.

We all hate Resort Fees we always will. Too much confusion and too much deception and too much of this it room is comped but the fee is still levied nonsense unless you happen to have a Super Duper Walk on Water Card and it is still currently valid and our computer system isn't sneezing when you check out.

But what can you do? They are here to stay.

Agree with the sentiments about resort fees adding up but still being less than flying to Reno to avoid resort fees and Big Strip gawkers.

Mind boggling and downright abusive that parking is not included in a $40/night resort fee. What exactly are you getting? It’s a little surprising they’re being legally allowed to even use the word resort as if you’re getting anything for the fee, extremely deceptive and just dishonest practice. Should just be called “fee.” It’s been an MGM corporate policy for my adult life to never put anything forward that a customer could perceive as providing value, so whatever.
