I see the Red Rock is offering a "no resort fee" deal from now through mid-April. They're looking to attract the spring break crowd I suppose. I hope it's a trend that catches on.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Sh## site but the Review Journal now requires a subscription.

We may have reached a point where the Big 2 may realize F****ing customers isn’t a good long term strategy as others try to steal their customers.

Or they find a way to buy out the competition and keep cultivating sheep.

The parking fee situation is interesting. I never thought of it from a local's point of view. Were I an LV resident there's no way I'd pay to park just to eat at a resort restaurant.

I live in Pittsburgh. If I want to eat at any of the options in the city I have to pay to park. There are no free options at all.

People seem to forget that it is normal to pay to park in most big cities. I paid $50 recently to park in Atlanta for dinner.

I can confirm that having Noir doesn’t automatically exempt you from resort fees. Your host has to remove it during reservation or at check out. Also, there is no “magic” list of perks others than the ones listed.

This quote from the Caesar's executive amuses me: "We don’t have any plans on changing the structure we have in place, we are certainly sensitive to the fact that we can hurt our own profitability and revenue growth if we get exorbitant or do things that have no value to them.”

Like yeah, obviously! Haha. The language is so detached from the people who actually are visiting it's disappointing but not surprising. All about the numbers.

On Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge it is the "X" button that replaces the refresh button when loading a web page.
