Vegas is getting very creative in squeezing every penny out of each visitor. Some hotels are now implementing an energy fee. LOL, don't understand why more hotels aren't set up like many foreign countries where you must insert your room key for the electricity to power up.

Are public pay toilets legal in Vegas?

That is basically already the case in many casinos with having to tip bathroom attendants every time that you go in... Its a way to shift the burden of routine maintenance onto the customer (by making certain maintenance workers tip-based workers)...

I have never seen a bathroom attendant in Vegas looking for tips like you see in nightclubs.

Old Hardrock and most strip clubs usually had an attendant. They also offered gum, mint,, candy, combs etc. Come to think of it, haven't seen any attendants up north in the Reno area.

I don’t get it. I mean, why charge $28.95 resort fee plus $3.95 energy fee? Do they really think that sounds better to customers than a single $32.90 fee???

If it allows them to claim lower resort fees than their rivals........
It might also be that a fuel surcharge isn't subject to room and sales taxes so the kindly casino will save its beloved patrons hundreds of thousands in sales tax.

I may or may not have left a random credit card in the slot when I left the room to go out. I like it cool when I return. I don’t like waiting an hour for the room to cool down. This is more prevalent overseas.
