Vegas.com Resort Fee Schedule

What many people don't know when they book a hotel through Priceline or even through the hotel directly is that many Vegas Hotels will charge you a mandatory resort fee. So when you book a room at say $69 per night for Treasure Island you may not know that when you check out you will be assessed an additional $20 per night in mandatory resort fees. These fees usually include some things that you may or may not use. In the case of Treasure Island for example that $20 gets you-

  • In-room high speed internet access
  • Admission to the fitness center
  • Admission to Christian Audigier The Nightclub
  • In-room local and toll-free phone calls
  • VIP viewing area at the Sirens of TI show
  • Printed airline boarding passes at Guest Services
  • Copies and faxes (up to 10 page) and notary services at business center
On a recent podcast of Five Hundy By Midnight , host Tim Dressen pointed out that Harrahs properties have all done away with any resort fees and have been making rather large media push to bring this to the attention of potential Vegas travelers.

So just to clarify if you are comparing two hotels and one charges $69 per night but has a $20 resort fee and another charges $79 per night without the fee and you like each hotel equally you should be aware of this.

How do you know what hotels are charging Resort fees and which don't you ask? Well Vegas.com has a fantastic chart which breaks everything's down for you
