Las Vegas Hotels Increase Resort Fees, Impacting Guests’ Expenses

by Alice

Staying at several popular casino hotels in Las Vegas just became a bit pricier as MGM Resorts, the parent company overseeing some of the city’s largest casinos and hotels, recently raised resort fees across multiple properties, with some reaching as high as $50. These additional fees, applied after reservations are made, contribute to an augmented total cost for guests. The incremental raise ranges between $2 and $6 per night, contingent on the specific property.

At MGM Grand Las Vegas, the resort fee, now standing at $45, encompasses services such as unlimited local and domestic phone calls, airline boarding pass printing, digital newspapers, fitness center access, and in-room Wi-Fi. Additionally, guests receive complimentary access to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME On Demand through the in-room television.

The revised resort fees for MGM Resorts properties are as follows:

ARIA Resort & Casino: $50.00

Bellagio Hotel & Casino: $50.00

Delano Las Vegas: $45.00

Excalibur Hotel & Casino: $37.00

Luxor Hotel & Casino: $37.00

Mandalay Bay: $45.00

MGM Grand Las Vegas: $45.00

New York-New York Hotel & Casino: $42.00

NoMad Las Vegas: $42.00

Park MGM: $42.00

Vdara Hotel & Spa at ARIA Las Vegas: $50.00

These pricing adjustments for resort fees came into effect on a recent Tuesday. Simultaneously, MGM Resorts revised their cancellation policy, extending it to 72 hours before check-in compared to the previous 48-hour requirement.

It’s important to note that MGM Rewards members at the Gold, Platinum, or NOIR levels enjoy a waiver of the resort fee. Furthermore, in light of their recent collaboration with Marriott, MGM Resorts has extended this benefit to members of the Marriott Bonvoy program at the Ambassador level through a status match opportunity.

While other Las Vegas hotels and casinos, including Wynn Las Vegas and Caesars Palace Las Vegas, also impose resort fees.As the hospitality industry contends with the issue of resort fees, there is growing scrutiny from lawmakers and oversight groups. The Biden administration’s guidance in October 2023 proposed potential legislation to ban “junk fees,” specifically citing resort fees. The envisioned rule, encompassing various industries such as event tickets, hotels, lodging, apartment rentals, and car rentals, could impose monetary penalties on non-compliant companies and necessitate refunds to consumers. The future of resort fees remains under examination, with a potential shift toward their elimination.
