I just returned from a NYNY stay on an offer from the Mlife site (3 nights Park Ave. room, $100 fp, $25 resort credit; I know, nothing fancy on this one). At check-in, the clerk made it a point to show me what the resort fee covers. :Þ Had an enjoyable trip, but had a couple of surprises at check-out. Stopped by the player’s club desk to see what they would take off. They covered all my meals, as I had hoped. The clerk said she could not take off the tips and taxes? What tips? I never put any on the receipts I signed. Turns out 2 of the restaurants did it automatically and I did not notice it. GRR! Also, this is the first time I have had taxes show up on comped food charged to the room. I know the casinos were fighting the state of Nevada over this, but I thought it had been settled in the customer’s favor. Maybe not. The player’s club clerk said she did not see any resort fees on my bill. Yay! She said it looked like I booked through a 3rd party instead of directly with the hotel. I said yes, I used the Mlife website. When I checked out at the front desk, I was told the tax/tip bill was $13 and change. Yuck. I checked my credit card bill online today and no pending charges from NYNY, not even the usual deposit hold. Hmm, maybe there is hope yet. I won’t get upset over $13, but was caught off guard by the taxes and the lack of resort fee.
