    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.

    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.

    • Casino Royale (Best Western)
    • Four Queens (they have a $3/day fee for parking)
    • Marriott Grand Chateau
    • Skylofts at MGM Grand

    "They (resort fees) also often apply to rooms that are comped or free with a club card offer."

    Just adding my 2cents...
    There is NO resort fee on comped rooms at MSS, the Cal, and the Plaza.

    Agree with no resort fee on downtown grand, but we did not receive a coupon book with our comped stay. I think this was recently eliminated.

    It's almost inconceivable to read how high these fees are. I've got "free" rooms for about as long as I've been going to Vegas, but they're really not free at all since I've been paying resort fees almost the entire time lol.

    Last time I stayed at four queens in June parking was free for hotel guests. They give you yellow paper placard to show parking gate attendant.

    Good to hear. Can anyone else confirm there's no charge for parking for guests at Four Queens?

    Okay, possibly not relevant, but does it strike anyone else as odd that Gold Coast and Sam's show their shuttles as a benefit of the Resort Fees when people who don't stay there ride them for free?o_O

    Checked in at Harrah's today. The resort fee covers 2 devices. Extras were something like $14.95 each per day .

    Maybe a bit off topic, but I have stayed at the Gold Coast many times over the years, but I've recently noticed something interesting and quite annoying, especially because I have to pay this stupid resort fee. When I enter the GC my phone switches to the free wifi in the casino. It works well and I never get dropped. It's automatic. But, when I go up to my room, I'm suddenly asked to login to the room wifi with name and room number. Then, however, if I leave the phone idle for a few minutes and then go back to it, I have to login again, etc. ad nauseam. It's very frustrating. In other words, the free wifi open to anyone in the casino is far superior to the wifi I PAY FOR! Talk about not wanting me to stay in the room.

    Has anyone figured out a way to swerve the resort fees? I got them waived once by complaining about something in the room but i'm not going to make up something every time i go in order to save $100

    I've updated the chart to reflect the new fees, starting August 1st, for ARIA, Bellagio and Vdara - $45.00 ($51.02 w/tax)

    VitalVegas reporting that Aria, Bellagio and Vdara all raising resort fees by $6 to $45 on August 1.
    I know people will say "add it to the room price and it's still a good value..." blah, blah, blah.
    But seriously, when do you say "enough is enough"?

    Well, the AG of Washington DC filed suit yesterday against Marriott for 'resort fees'. I wonder if other AGs will watch this case and see how it turns out before they do the same.

    There was also talk that in the last NV legislative session they were considering a law that would force the hotels to include all the fees and taxes on the price before customers started the booking process. I didn't see where it landed but I would guess some companies made donations to re-election campaigns to make sure it died in committee.
