It's taken years, but I'm finally feeling sticker shock with these "Resort Fee & Tax" charges. Maybe it was this high last year, but I thought I remembered it being in the $20's a Mandalay, Aria and most other places. $36 is a lot to swallow for services I don't want. Internet, calls, fitness... I know that the point is to have an excuse to charge the fee and not provide value, but still. Looking at $144 tacked on the bill - crazy. Especially because the real tax is another $42. So a subtotal of just over $600 becomes about $800. Not that Vegas is going to care, but 9-8 trips this year just became 2-3. I'm not a cheap person. We're not high-rollers, but we spend good money between the tables plus food and shops and shows. Their nickel-and-diming cost them some cash. I guess I'm just surprised that it finally got to me. Didn't think it would. Once i get there it's easier to throw cash at activity. And we drive from LA, so if they really start charging for parking! Ah well.
