Las Vegas Resort Fees By Resort – 2021

Ever-increasing 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 are a fixed nightly fee in addition to the room rate that you pay at check-in.

What do you get in return 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”.

We should note that although we detest resort fees, that rooms in Las Vegas still typically shake out to be a tremendous value when compared to similar hotel offerings in other US destinations.

With that being said, we wanted to compile and maintain, an up-to-date list of Las Vegas resort fees so that you could plan your vacation accordingly and avoid surprises.

Barring a change of attitude toward resort fees from resorts, or legislation that prohibits their use, Las Vegas resort fees aren’t going away anytime soon. Given the current trend, we can only assume that Vegas casinos will continue to increase fees incrementally in lockstep with each other. Keep checking our updated list of resort fees to stay up to date.

Fee not free


Friday 3rd of July 2020

As a Canadian tourist, the resort fees absolutely kill the Vegas experience. I book a room for 20 bucks and then have to pay 35 bucks resort fee a night. Last time we went was a July 4th weekend to experience the celebrations and just the resort fees and a couple buffet trips practically cost half the trip. The resort fees made us cut back on the gambling, souvenirs and shows in the casino. I do want to say that staff (except for the check in desk) were great in the casinos we visited, restaurant staff were great and all but one meal was delicious. I’d visit Vegas at least twice a year if the resort fees were gone, definitely go see a hockey game at least once. Someone has got to realize that it hurts the tourism, getting gouged by these resort fees.

We went 3 times in the 90s, staying at San Remo, Imperial Palace and Maxim. No resort fees back then and still great prices everywhere, including buffets. Went back in March 2015, $22.00 resort fees at Exclaibur, following July, $26.00, then last week at Luxor, $35.00. Add to that the taxes and for Canadians, another 40% on every dollar, makes travel to the US, especially Las Vegas, extremely expensive.
