If you plan on staying at most hotels or casinos in Las Vegas your stay will be subject a Resort Fee. The Resort Fee is payable directly to the hotel and is added on your bill at check out. If you have booked with a third party site like Expedia or Travelocity you will still owe this fee to the hotel and it is not included in your quoted price. There is also tax charged to the Resort Fee.
In exchange for paying the Resort Fee hotels state you will get the use of a list of services like the gym or fitness center, property wide wifi, newspapers, local phone calls and being able to print boarding passes. The strangest service offered is under MGM Properties who give you access to a notary, not sure why you would need that. Some of the hotels like the Downtown Grande state you get complimentary free parking which isn’t really free if you are paying a fee for it.
**Remember the Resort Fee is not included in the fee you are being quoted on third party websites.
