    Several Las Vegas hotels charge a nightly resort fee on top of the advertised room rates. These fees apply on top of rooms booked directly with the hotel, as well as those booked through a broker or outside web site. They also often apply to rooms that are comped or free with a club card offer.

    NOTE: Nevada state legislature has mandated an increase in the transient lodging (room) tax rate. The tax rate applies to both room cost and resort fees and will change as follows:

    · Effective March 1, 2017, the tax will increase again from 12.5% to 13.38%

    This chart reflects the resort fees with the 13.38% tax, taking effect on March 1, 2017.

    This chart also reflects the new resort fee rates for CET properties effective March 1, 2017.


    In an effort to help people better make decisions when choosing a hotel, we've compiled this list. Please be aware that these fees change without notice. If you find something in this post that is not current, please send a PM to Sonya or post in this thread and one of us will edit the original post ASAP. Thanks for your help keeping this list current.

    Hello, I'm new to the board and usually stay at Mlife properties but I've stayed at most of the other strip hotels as well. With resort fees increasing at an alarming rate, is there any chance the FTC steps in sometime soon and forces hotel operators to get rid of these added charges? The resort fee hikes are getting ridiculous.

    I usually stay on the Strip but for the 1st time on #11 trip will be staying downtown at the California due to the "Idiot Tax" aka a "resort fees" ,as they are treating & insulting our intelligence with these facilities which have always been free..and in the case of pools are usually closed around 6 pm..

    Just a footnote, the Trop does not charge a resort fee on comped nights.

    Thanks to @trellaine for letting me know M Resort is now charging a resort fee. I'll add this info to the first post and remove it from the No Resort Fee list.

    M Resort has a $19.99 per room, per night resort fee.

    The resort fee includes:
    • Internet
    • Fitness center
    • 2 bottles of water on arrival replenished daily
    • Free parking
    • Newspaper
    • Scheduled Shuttle to and from the airport
    • Scheduled Shuttle to and from Tropicana hotel
    • 800 and local calls

    Sonya,
    It appears the Downtown Grand's resort fee is now $23 plus tax. That's what I think I'm seeing in my recent booking.
