MGM Resort Fees

I recently posted about Caesars Entertainment raising and standardizing their resort fees. MGM Resorts has done a similar thing. Most of their resorts now have a $29 per night resort fee. That is $32.48 per night after taxes. Their mid- and lower level hotels have lower fees. Circus Circus has the lowest fee at $15 per night ($16.80 with tax).
