Along with gambling and over-imbibing, resort fees have sadly become a way of life in Vegas. These per-night, plus tax, add-ons can turn that cheap Vegas deal you found into an unexpected Sin City splurge, especially since some resort fees are collected at the time of check-in, and not at the time of booking (and budgeting).

In fact, it’s quite common to see a hotel’s room rate going for about the same price as the hotel’s resort fee. And like the odds at the sportsbook, the resort fees are constantly changing. As it stands right now, there’s no law on the books that restricts Vegas hotels and casinos from raising their fees whenever they want to however much they want.

The casinos are also constantly adjusting what’s included in the resort fee, typically paring down the amenities. For example, MGM Resorts, which runs about a dozen properties in Las Vegas, just did away with free parking, without lowering their resort fees.
 
We have a list of Vegas’ resort fees, including tax, as of March 2016. These can and will change so be sure to read the fine print both at the time of booking and at check-in, but they give you a strong sense of what each property is up to.

Are you as turned off by these oversized surcharges as we are? There's one thing you can do to curb them in Vegas: Head downtown, where the resort fees are nearly half what they cost on the glitzy Las Vegas Strip.
