    CET to start charging resort fees.

    Check out the article. It's going to be a lot harder to avoid resort fees in Vegas. In fact I think that covers the whole strip now.

    So much for that big PR blitz they've had for so long advertising No Resort Fees. Hopefully this will be waived for comp rooms like it is at other places. But really bad news for so many TR members who don't qualify for comp rooms but get heavily discounted rooms. When they're paying a discount $30 rate to stay somewhere a $25 resort fee isn't a small charge.

    From the articles it sounds like you'll have to pay the fee. But call to ask and complain if they're going to charge it on a reservation you already booked. That shouldn't be allowed since it wasn't listed at your booking. They may try to charge people who already made reservations -- but I imagine people who complain can get it waived.

    I just called 1-800-Caesars (223-7277) with regards to my May booking at the Flamingo, and they have not heard anything about the resort fees.

    They said that they only charge resort fees in Atlantic city.

    I told her that I had the prices for the individual properties and she had no clue what I was talking abotu but said that she will inform her supervisors.

    as far as I can tell, the booking engine is currently mentioning 0 fee. So I guess its not implemented yet.

    For those who have opened it....

    The link looks suspect so I'm leery of clicking on it.

    Do they list the proposed resort fees for the various hotels? If so, how much is PH?

    This why I booked Bally's, because they did not charge a fee. Not real happy about this, but not much can be done I guess. I have had the booking for over a month now, so maybe they will wave the fee if I ask????? We arrive March 31st & switching to another hotel(even though they all have fees now)is not a option at this point. My husband has to have medical supplies delivered & his Dr has already placed the order to be delivered to Bally's.

    I hope this is optional in cases like me and other people who have comped rooms and no desire to use the spa, no desire to read a newspaper, no desire to see porno movies, no desire to go on the internet, no desire to use THEIR phone, etc.etc.
    I am not paying $15-$18 a day for something i never use. Otherwise see me at Travelodge or Motel 6.

    I would hold off on hitting the panic button. I believe this is spurious at best. I check in tomorrow at Ballys and will get the latest info while there and report back.

    The link in the 2nd posting goes to the same place as the first posting. Went to CET corporate website - not under their press releases. Guessing it is true though.

    As to charging for a previously made reservation - they are going to need to be very open about waiving that. I am sure they will.

    That would be great, I am going to be pretty shocked (and definitely not happy) if this proves to be valid.

    From the blog posting:
    Maybe its true but this info is sketchy. Where did they announce it? Nothing in CET press releases about it and nothing else showing up under Google news or blog searches. Mind you this is not an "article" its a blog post so no way to tell how much fact-checking goes into it.

    That being said CET is hurting and is trying to raise a big round of financing right now and charging those resort fees probably looks enticing!

    "Yesterday, Caesars Entertainment, which had been promoting itself for some time as the hotel group with “no resort fees,” notified online travel agencies that mandatory nightly surcharge will be applied on all bookings made for stays at its Nevada properties that begin on or after March 1."

    Apparently their only source is a travel agent.

    Agreed!!

    I don't stay at MGM properties, normally, just to avoid those fees.
    If this gets charged for my upcoming comped stay............all I have to say is you better call hotel security then! Because this is gonna get brutal.:grrr:
