For someone for the last 18 years who has visited the Las Vegas Strip as few as 3 times per year and as many as 6 times per year I must say things have never ever been worse. 1) Resort fees- What a joke.. Roughly between $20 and $30 per night. Unless you are a high roller there is no avoiding this. For 5 months of the year you pay for this even without the use of the pool. 2) 6/5 Blackjack- Once again unless your a high roller good luck trying to find a decent low roller game on the strip. They are few and far between. Depressing. 3) Late night specials- Are they still available on the strip? Yes. Are they even harder to find? Yes! 4) Early check in- Until the last 5 years this was always available in Las Vegas. 5 years later its still available but you guessed its for a cost. This typically has cost me anywhere from $20-40. What will be next? Who knows. Sadly there is no longer any competition amongst hotels on the Las Vegas Strip and as a result we are feeling it many ways. What else am I missing here? It saddens me deeply to see all these negative things happening in my favorite place in the world.
