Resort Fee's

These make me crazy! We are going in Febuary and have no intentions of using the facilities, pool

etc. and don't need a daily newspaper every morning. Do the hotels allow you to refuse it?

Refuse the resort fee - usually no. However Venetian/Palazzo's resort fee is optional. If you're platinum or higher with CET the resort fee is waived. And TI has some offers that have the resort fee as optional.

For what it's worth, use of a pool isn't generally included as an amenity covered by a resort fee. Many pools will be closed in February anyway and it may very well be too cold to use one that's open.

Resort fees are mandatory at virtually all hotels. Venetian/Palazzo is one property where it's optional and this also applies to some promotional offers at TI. Otherwise just include any fee as part of the total you pay each night and pick a hotel based on that. Life's too short to get driven crazy over this!

Thanks but if I want to give my money away i'll give it to some poor person on the street that needs it not these mafia run resorts. And further more we don't gamble either, just want to go to see the sites Hoover Dam etc. They should just put it into the price of the room instead of pi$$ing people off and I know I'm not the only one that feels like this.

I guess they see the airlines getting away for charging for everything including poop ticketsthey think they can get away with it to.

This is a serious question...

What's a "poop ticket"?

Was that a typo or is this something I never heard of.

Spend your money on Xanex and obviously stay off strip at a establishment that doesn't charge resort fees or just get over it.

Unfortuneately it is what it is. I wish they'd just put it into their charge too. They must think they're "sneaking" it past us or something . I used to hope that people would head towards the Caeser properties and force the others to stop charging the fee but to no avail. As long as people put up with this type of thing it will continue and get worse I guess.

You don't want to gamble? Just stay at one of the many off-Strip, decent chain properties without a casino...or a resort fee. Problem solved.

You know for sure incorrectly. Cosmo has had a resort fee for some time.
