Las Vegas hotels raise resort fees; guests could pay more in fees than cost of room some nights

LAS VEGAS - Resort fees at hotels on the Las Vegas Strip have increased.  According to the L.A. Times, on certain nights, visitors could pay more in fees than the cost of a night's stay.

“They make enough money as it is, said Ashley Jones, a visitor from Toledo, Ohio. "I mean come on."

Caesars Entertainment raised nightly resort fees at eight of its nine properties.

Here's how much you can expect to pay:

  • Bally's, Flamingo, Harrah's and The Linq: $35 (up from $30)
  • Cromwell, Paris and Planet Hollywood: $37 (up from $35)
  • Caesars Palace: $39 (up from $35)
  • No change at Rio, which charges $30

Fees at other hotel-casinos have also gone up. Go here to see what you can expect to pay.

Visitors, especially some spending multiple nights in hotels in Las Vegas, are chiming in. 

“They pull you in with the cheap price and then when you do get in it's that little, you know, little parenthesis down there with the resort fees and it's so high I feel like for no reason,” Jones said. 

“We're seeing a lot of beautiful things inside these hotels and I don't think they're free for them,” said Chuck Masad, a visitor, from Chino Hills, California. “Everybody comes here to enjoy the ambiance of Las Vegas so there's a fee that comes with that."

“What do you get for it? WiFi, that's it,” said Gary Curtis, a visitor from London.

In a statement, Caesars Entertainment said the fees cover in-room premium WiFi, fitness center for places that have them and all local calls.
