My partner and I are going to Vegas in August and have found some hotel deals in Vegal which "appear" to be quite reasonable. I then ready the VERY small print and learn of something called Resort Fees.
We are considering staying at the Flamingo Hotel and what I can gather, we HAVE to pay $18 per night for a resort fee as well as $15 for a refrigerator fee as well at $100 per night deposit.
Me being British, I ahve been largely sheltered from this sort of this as I (quite wrongly) assumed that hotels give you a price, you pay the price, you stay the nights....this simplicity of doing business seems evidently lost in Vegas which seems to be a real shame as I feel almost cheated before I even get there.
Is this fairly typical of Vegas hotels as all we want to do is come to vegas, enjoy the strip and the sights and relax by the pool....not too much to ask but it appears that we will be charge fee after fee after fee in order to stay there.
My confidence in this vacation has been shaken to the point that I am expecting to pay a bed surcharge...now Im just being melodramatic now but I would really like some help in this area.
