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.


Are you just referring to the D? I just called a CET property 2 days ago for a 4 night stay, in which the first 2 nights were comped, the 2nd 2 nights were reduced rate (some convention in town) and the resort fee's were going to apply to every night, even the "comped" nights.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I never pay for rooms at CET properties and have never paid a resort fee.

No, not diamond. I don't play enough to get that.

I go to Las Vegas about 3 times a year with my girlfriend and we share a card. She plays slots and I play table games.

I'd guess we drop between $1,000 - $2,000 each time we go. I tip good too.

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


Yeah, well, a lot of the hotels that DO charge resort fees aren't worthy of the "resort" tag either.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I have only stayed at MSS out of the no resort fees hotels, with that said, I highly recommend it. Great craps game (dealers), cheap double deck game (h17 for $10 maybe 5), and connection to a larger selection of slots (California).

Thanks for that link, terapined. Interesting; Venthus noted above that Boyd properties all charge resort fees, but the California/Fremont/MSS are on this list. I just went through the booking process on the MSS website and it appears there are no resort fees. Interestingly, they have a disclaimer on the booking page: "Room rates listed do not include resort fees or taxes which are subject to change." But no resort fee added to the total, so it looks like they are clean.

I have always wanted to stay at MSS, so maybe next trip I'll target there. Good place for my minimal rated craps action too, as they have 20X odds.

Were you Platinum in the past? When was your last trip? Is it possible they applied your RCs to the resort fees? At checkout did the resort fees come up at all, or just no mention of them, and no charge?

Sorry for the third degree, but this is in direct contradiction to my most recent experience (spring 2014) and many other members' experiences as well, I think.

Ah so you can get resort fee comped? When I booked my 'free' room they told me the resort fee couldn't be comped. I should have asked anyway when I was checking out.

My mistake; I've only stayed at their off-Fremont locations, and those all had resort fees. It seemed reasonable that if three of their LV properties charged it, that the others would too, but... who knows. Whoops.
