LVH

Effective tomorrow, the LVH is adding an $18/day (plus tax) resort fee to all accommodations.

Resort fee includes "in room high speed internet for one device, cardio room access for two persons, use of in-room safe, local and toll free (800) calls."

Rates range from $38 on the bottom end, which makes the resort fee ~48% mark up in profit. C H A - C L V H I N G!

Big thanks to VT reader @vegassami for the tweet tip!

If you think that's bad, Hooters is raising theirs to $12.95/night plus taxes.

They are charging you to use the safe? The one thing in the room that assures me that no one comes in and steals my stuff? Paris and Nikki must not be able to buy new Lamborgini's this year.

You just have to add the fee to the room rate and decide if it's still worth it to stay at the given resort. I think the fee is insulting, but for me it's more about the overall price than the fee.

@Levans, the Hiltons have nothing to do with this property, as the LVH name is because of Hilton pulling their licensing of the Hilton brand off of the property. Bally's resort fee doesn't include the use of the in-room safe, and is an extra $3/day charge (Bally's is the only hotel I've stayed at that actually charged you to use the in-room safe.).

I'll be so happy when they start doing this everywhere else... like gas stations...

Yes yes Mr. Skywise... your gas was $3.75 a gallon but there's a $15 station fee added on to each purchase which includes free access to our restrooms, one free lottery ticket and a blueberry Squishee!

Might as well stay at the Bellagio, they only charge a $25 resort fee (and their pool area is much nicer!)

My proposed policy for resort fees:

A resort fee should be an optional payment. If you don't want the "resort amenities" then don't pay the fee. If there is no way to opt out of the resort fee, it should be part of the standard room rate. Either way, no more hiding the resort fee in the small print on the third page of online reservations.

I'd love to see the concept of "resort fees" end up in the courtroom. Perhaps a class-action suit involving the millions of MGM/CET/independent hotel guests from the past two years would be something that gets the resorts' attention.
