It would be very helpful to have an up to date "guide" listing Las Vegas Hotels that do not charge resort fees. Unfortunately, this list seems to get shorter every day.

It may also be helpful soon to have a "guide" for Strip hotels with free parking.

Good idea. I've thought about doing just a resort fee guide but never got around to it. Combining it with a parking guide would be a valuable resource and pretty easy to do.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thanks Wizard! They could be columns on the existing spreadsheet of reviews on the "Hotels" page, or it could be a new sheet on that page. In either case, the timeliness of the maintenance of the information is the challenge, since new fees seem to be popping up all the time.

The hotels section is pretty dated. Jackie hasn't owned the El Cortez in several years now., and Cafe Cortez went the way of $2 BJs.
The two blocks that you describe as shabby are now prime real estate.

Yikes, it says that?!? He sold the last of his part ownership in the ElCo almost TEN freakin' years ago, in 2008.

Though it was done with an arrangement that allowed him to continue living upstairs. And to sometimes continue to wander downstairs to throw away chips as a sort of human splash-pot lose-bot in the micro-stakes poker cubbyhole, and drool on any of the waitresses that came within reach in his occasional frisky moments during his last decade. I probably caught a total of couple of thousand of those chips myself over a period of a dozen years or so, which isn't unique and wasn't the least bit difficult, but should theoretically be pretty much impossible in that $1 single blind game.

He lost his last ridiculously played hand and salivated on the legs of his final drink server over three years ago, and if he recovered from his rather dead condition and emerged from his burial crypt in Omaha to do anything anywhere today he'd be doing it at the age of 97. With a drink in-hand, and the rack of chips for his elevendy-seventh re-buy on the way, no doubt.

The memorial service for gaming industry pioneer Jackie Gaughan was as much a window into Las Vegas history as it was...

...<SNIP of the respectfully cleaned up local daily's page length print description of his life & times & very public memorial>...

Nevermind.

If the pay is right, I'll volunteer for pretty much anything.
