    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

    Wynn will waive resort fee. But it's then $19.99 per device per day for wifi.

    According to this the Sam's shuttle is running again. Can anyone verify that?

    Shuttle (to/from Strip & Downtown Boyd Properties)

    But doesn't virtually everywhere in Vegas have free wifi? Including just about all the casinos?

    It is still listed as a "perk" of the resort fee, but I don't believe it is running again. Should I take it off until we hear it is running?

    I'll poke around their website, maybe send them an email and ask. Curious minds want to know. I could have used that a couple weeks ago. I'll let you know that they say.

    And the answer is.....

    (Editor’s note: While Sam’s Town is open, unfortunately its shuttle is not running. We’ll update this article as soon as it’s back up.)

    I may have missed it, but what’s the resort fee situation at Virgin hotel?

    I have pulled the shuttle bus from Sam's Town as an perk of the resort fee, as it is not currently running.

    Virgin Hotel still seems to not be charging for parking or a resort fee. I've added it to the short list of hotels without a resort fee.

    Is there a list anywhere that details which hotels waive the resort fee with comped rooms? I've always been curious. Thanks in advance.

    Interesting. It looks like they at least try to provide some value for the $45 per night fee. As you can see...other properties don't even try. Thanks for this info.

    See the paragraph on this subject from @Sonya at top of this thread, right after the list of no resort fee hotels.

    Unless the property states up front that they don’t charge resort fees (like the ones listed by @Sonya), I’m not sure how that is possible.

    My experience, aside from Sonya’s list at top of thread, shows comped rooms don’t always include waived resort fees up front. It’s a case by case basis to the best of my knowledge, sometimes included at booking, sometimes waived at checkin, sometimes comped on the back end, or not waived at all. I think it depends on your play level/play history at each property.

    Examples:
    I stayed at GVR on a room comp, but the resort fee was not comped. Learned later if I had stopped at host desk it would have been back end comped based on my play that trip.

    One time at Wynn I was on a comp and a host removed the resort fee. Now with my level of play, it is waived at booking, (BUT does not include free WIFI in the room if it is waived, unless a host codes it for free wifi you will be charged daily for wifi).

    All the mlife properties I stay at are comped with no resort fee. But I have read in various posts on here where folks with comped rooms pay resort fees and negotiate at hotel to have removed.
