Cosmopolitan Gets In The Green Chip Resort Fee Business

An interesting thread on the VT Board has brought to light that Cosmopolitan will be charging a $25 resort fee starting January 1st.

The post claims a listing for resort fee is listed on Expedia's Cosmo page.

The following fees and deposits are charged by the property at time of service, check-in, or check-out.
Buffet breakfast fee: USD 22 per person (approximately)
Fee for in-room wireless Internet: USD 15 (for 24 hours, rates may vary)
Pet fee: USD 50.00 per day
Deposit: USD 150.00 per day
Rollaway bed fee: USD 30.00 per day

I don't see it.

Anyways intrepid internet super ferret with uber sharp teefth (and resident Cosmopolitan expert) has gone the extra mile (twice!) and phoned the resort services to see if this is true.... and they say it is.

Oh Cosmopolitan... first the tariff for terrace pricing, dumping the free wi-fi and now the resort fee... $25 bucks! Deutsche Bank muzt be sveating fum zee rim of zee black turtlenecks.

Thanks Diablo for the tip on The Board and Mac78675 for ferreting out the facts.

Ugh, just... ugh.

On the other hand, wouldn't it be cool if the resort fee included a daily buffet pass? :)

This place is still around?

Fee resort fee starts with reservations made on or after December 3, per a phone call with The Cosmopolitan, not January 1.

Well I'm glad I have my next 2 trips to Cosmo reserved already. Its the last casino of note on the strip that has yet to disenfranchise me, but from what I've seen happen to others, and with two trips on the agenda, it is only a matter of time.

At least it includes food! You get a buffet breakfast (not that anyone's ever up for that anyway). Is it a buffet for every person in your party? Or just ONE buffet per room? So you get to eat one day, then the next day someone else gets to, lol

Oh NVM I just saw it was per person. Derp. And I don't think those expense above include the resort fee. Do you HAVE to get charged for breakfast everyday or is that something optional? And $150/day for incidentials? Jesus christ!

It's now listed on The Cosmopolitan's website. I give them kudos for mentioning the resort fee right up front on their booking page and then again on the calendar page, but... Way to make sure I keep staying downtown. Ugh.

The detail text from cosmopolitanlasvegas.com:
*Guests arriving on or after January 1, 2013, will be subject to a nightly resort fee of $25 per room plus applicable taxes. The resort fee includes: High speed internet access, Unlimited local, toll-free, and domestic long distance telephone calls (all 50 states), 24-hour fitness center access and Tennis court access (based on availability).

The resort fee DOES NOT include breakfast at the Wicked Spoon. It cannot be waived after 1/1/13. Does not apply to Identity Gold, Platinum & comped casino guests. DOES apply to Marriott Platinum, & cannot be paid with points. Tax is not included, so the fee is actually $28. Resort services was quick to point out that parking is still free...
