Mark’s Las Vegas update

I just got back from over a week in Las Vegas and I have a lot to write about. I’ll be posting hotel reviews for The Signature at MGM, Red Rock Resort, The Flamingo and New York – New York.  I’ll add a few show reviews and a Station Casino Boarding Pass players club overview. I have a few more subjective posts planned, too.
Thanks for your patience,

Caesars Entertainment Resort Fee Increase

Caesars Entertainment is now charging a resort fee of $25 per night at all of its Las Vegas properties. That $25 is $28 after taxes.  The resort fee is the same whether you are at the LINQ, Rio, Harrah’s, Cromwell, Nobu or any of the other Caesars properties. That is the highest resort fee in Las Vegas and matches that of the high end resorts like the Mandarin Oriental, Aria, and Wynn. All this from the company that made a big deal about not charging resort fees a few years ago.

The resort fee covers in-room high speed internet access (typically Wi-Fi and ethernet),  all local calls and daily fitness center access for 2. The resort fee is waived for Total Rewards Diamond and Seven Stars members. Platinum members used to be exempt, too, but that is no longer the case.  Note that when the fee is waived you don’t get the perks either.

The rates and Total Rewards policy change applies to all new reservations.

The Smith Center is primarily focused on locals, but it is a quality performing art center with performances by local performing arts organizations as well as touring shows, so you may find something of interest there as a tourist, too.
