In July of 2012 we stayed at TI in Las Vegas. The hotel was booked as part of a package.
Much to our surprise there was added at check-in a $25.00 daily resort fee. The fee pays for fitness facilites, wireless in room internet, a daily newspaper, 2 for 1 buffet dinner one time (this is the only thing of value in my opinion), buy one get one free drink coupon. I am on VACATION so I have no use for wireless internet and fitness facilities. There is no opt out of this resort fee.
Research since I got home indicates that many resorts in Vegas charge this fee. But there are some who advertise that they do not.
This is a warning about what I consider a HUGE ripoff. CONSUMER BEWARE!
Monetary Loss: $25.
