Ever rising resort fees in Las Vegas are taking a bite out of tourist’s wallets before they play their first hand of blackjack. For those unfamiliar, resort fees in Las Vegas are a fixed nightly fee that you pay when you check in.
What do you get for paying the resort fee? Not much. The resort fee is said to cover “amenities” like in room internet, fitness center access, local phone calls, shuttle services and in some cases a local newspaper. In reality, resort fees are designed to pad the bottom line via an additional expense passed on to consumers. Additionally, hotels don’t pay online travel agents (Expedia, Travelocity, etc) commission on the fee, only the advertised “room rate”.
