Encore Resort Fee Question

Okay, forgive me for probably asking a stupid question. I received a comped room offer from the Encore and on the offer it states "Rate is exclusive of resort fee and tax."

I read this to mean no tax or resort fee will be charged to me. Is that right? But then I started to question because maybe it meant that the comp excludes the resort fee and tax, meaning I'd have to pay it. Then I just confused myself all around!

I figured the smart people over here would be able to straighten this out for me.

Based solely on that wording, I would expect to pay a resort fee.

This means the rate quote is for room only, you will need to pay resort fee of $20 plus tax per night. Depending on your offer there may also be room tax.

Call up the front desk to veify. but just paying the resort fee for a compd room, at the Encore is hooked up regardless.

Oh yeah, I think that definitely means you have to pay. That's why they word it like that. If it was totally free, they wouldn't mention the fees I bet.

In this wording, "exclusive" means...not included. You will pay the tax and resort fee.

Obviously not what I was hoping to hear, but hey, I guess can live with an Encore room for just the $20/night resort fee. It makes it easier to swallow since they gave me $300 in freeplay along with it. I usually do all my play and staying at CET properties, so never had to deal with how resort fees are handled on comped rooms. But Steve decided to hook me up after I recently signed up for a Red Card and just played enough to get a free buffet

(actually just enough to get a free buffet and a free room apparently :)

Thanks for the answers everyone.

I would call and ask, we have never had to pay anything if our room was comped at Wynn/Encore, but if you add even one night on at a lower rate, they will go back and add the resort fee on to each night( which is strange.)

FYI in case anyone else has a similar offer, I didn't have to pay any resort fees or taxes. Completely free.
