El Cortez is implementing a $8.95 resort fee beginning February 1st. Seriously, of all the places, the el Cortez. In related news, I think I just saw a pig fly by my window. The part that may be a mistake and cause them to lose some patrons to others downtown that are waiving them, is that the fee will apparently not be waived for comped guests.

The word "resort" is grossly misrepresented at places on the strip, what makes downtown so snooty?

When does the El Cortez plan to build this "resort" for which they will be charging a fee?

They have security guards outside the cabana suites, a gym, and an elevator (it's really slow). What more amenities do you want for your $8.95 :)

People need to start bitching to their lawmakers and have these con jobs called "resort fees" outlawed.

How long before a joint like Vegas World starts offering to pay you $80 to stay at the Stratosphere which would then charge a $100 resort fee?

I think it's reverse psychology. There is no resort, but out-of-towners don't know that unless they do their homework, and most other Vegas properties are charging it, so to not charge it is to admit there's no resort. On my last Vegas trip, I was seated by the window, and honeymooners were in the 2 seats next to me. First trip to Vegas, and they were on a package deal to the El Cortez they found on the internet.

I didn't have the heart to say anything other than to wish them well. Chances are they never noticed the room anyway.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

. I know you know better than that. All these criminals, I mean politicians, except for an almost non existent minority do is whatever they're told by the corporations or big money lobbyists that put them in office. In Nevada, that means casinos.

. Internet too. Cabana suites can kinda sorta justify it, but if your in a vintage room, a non waivable resort fee for that?
