Is anyone aware of a run-down of all the hotels in Vegas, and which ones charge/don't charge a resort fee?

I found a few old threads, but the last post on each of those is back to 2010. The report at Cheapo Vegas is out of date, as it lists the El Cortez as not having one, but it does now (granted they call it an "amenities fee").

So, anyway, just looking for a list of hotels that are holding strong on no resort fee. Personally I'm most interested in downtown, but I'm sure other people have other interests.

The "resort fee's" or whatever they want to call them, are straight BS anyways. If I don't want to use your wifi or gym, then I shouldn't have to pay $14.99 per night for them. All I know that's recent is that CET properties are now implementing their resort fee's on their platinum members as well, which in my past (but recent) experiences is about $14.99/night.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Last I checked, all Boyd, CET, MGM and Station properties charge resort fees, plus the Cosmo. I want to say that The D does as well (or maybe it was an FSE charge, which amounts to the same thing), but it's been over a year since I was there.

Edit: Station and Cosmo waive the resort fees if ANY portion of the stay is on offer. (Last checked two weeks and three months ago, respectively.) Boyd is hit or miss-- Sam's Town and The Orleans didn't charge resort fees, but Gold Coast did, and said it was standard, when inquired.

I have to give CET some credit-- if you're paying the resort fee, then you have wifi. If you're Diamond+ and have it waived, you have to pay for the wifi yourself, so there is an actual change of available services. (Alternatively, I guess the view is that lower ranked members are forced to pay for it regardless of use.)

I have some memory of a previous trip report wherein either The Ditz or the Four Queens had not given in to charging a fee yet. Both are independent so it's possible.

Four Queens proudly states "NO RESORT FEE" on their reservations page, which is, frankly, terrible.

The D, however, is out. I went through the motions of booking a room and they have the standard Resort Fee disclaimer on their checkout page:
Quote:

A Resort Fee of $20 per night, plus taxes, will be applied to all reservations made to arrive on August 19th, 2013 and on. Resort Fee will include free high speed Wi-Fi access, $10 off the D Showroom tickets and free local and toll-free calls.

You should call The D ahead of time and ask if you book x nights if you can get one free. If any part of your stay is comped, none of your stay will have resort fees. You'd have to pay for Internet access, though.

On my next Vegas trip (which is currently theoretical) I would really like to support a hotel that doesn't have resort fees. However, I understand this may not be practical. My next choice would be any hotel that waives the Resort Fee for comped rooms, and after that one that has a low resort fee.

Thanks for the info on the Ditz though, that is useful.

I used to use http://lasvegasresortfees.com/, but it is down right now. If it is permanently down, then I think this site should take the baton as the current source for that topic.

None of those are worthy to be called a "resort," except the M.
