MGM Drops the Non-Smoking Fee

Do you remember that $20/night non-smoking room guarantee fee that we reported MGM Grand had started charging a month or so ago?

Well, a few days ago VT super friend Dr. Dave pointed out that the Tribune Media Service had picked up the story, leading all the "forward thinking" travel blogs to follow suit and serve up a big steaming pile of shit shame directly to the social media doorstep of MGM Resorts International (all using almost the exact language we did... hrm.)

As a result, MGM has decided to stop offering non-smoking room guarantees and attempted to explain the reasoning for the fee add on as the hotel equivalent of airline industry priority seating.... bulkheads, exit rows, aisle or window requests and the like.

I kinda feel like VT owes Harrah's an apology.

Thanks to VT super friend JohnD for the tip.

Ha!! Excellent!

Nice to see them called on this joke of a fee. What's next charging a fee for putting sheets on the beds?

I am glad they called it off, this would have been a deal breaker for me.
