    I believe 1 device is free. Unless the resort fee covers multiple devices.

    How long has this been part of the resort fee offer? Was there in August last year and I don't recall it being part of it? Is it difficult to connect? How's the connection?

    I thought 1 device is covered in the resort fee..... I do have a question. As a diamond, they say they waive resort fees. So does it mean that I can use the wifi for 1 device for free or would it mean that I would now be charged a resort fee if I avail of the wifi?

    Resort fee only gives you 1 free device when I was there in Oct and previous trips. Connection is ok not the greatest.

    The resort fees are waived in lieu of not receiving the amenities given with the resort fees. So if you want wi-fi you will just purchase the wi-fi when you get to your room.

    do you know how much to purchase wifi only? Would it just be easier to pay resort fee?

    There is free wifi at Cafe Belle Madelaine through the shops and into Paris. You can access it from outside the cafe too.

    This is only the case for Diamond and 7Stars. Everyone else pays the fee whether they use the services or not. The coverage increased to 2 devices around the time they jacked up the rates.

    When I stayed at Ballys in November, back when Platinum didn't have to pay resort fees, the wifi was about $14 per day, and $22 per day for enhanced (faster) wifi.

    I stayed in one of the outside rooms facing north against the street my last trip. I got free WiFi from the hotel across the street. Lol
