Boo Caesar’s Entertainment Starts Charging Resort Fees

Unfortunately Caesar’s Entertainment has decided to start doing the very thing they have been proudly advertising they do not do, which is charging resort fees.  In case you are not familiar with a resort fee, it is an additional charge to your nightly hotel rate charged upon check out.  It is not included in your rate and resorts justify charging these fees by giving the customer internet and access to the gym.

Caesar’s Entertainment has fought a long battle against resort fees and have proudly stated that they do not charge them.  This has always increased the likelihood of me staying at their resort or at the very least I calculated the overall price of the room with the fees included.  Apparently this is not the case for everybody as Caesar’s Entertainment resorts have decided to start charging them.  The hotels in the Caesar’s family are Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Paris, Flamingo, Bally’s, Harrah’s, Rio, and The Quad.

All of these properties will start charging resort fees for reservations made on or after March 1, 2013.  So to avoid the fees make sure to book your reservation in the next few days.  The good news is their semi-annual sale has been extended so you can get up to 25% off rooms here.

That only leaves one hotel left standing that does not charge resort fees on the main part of the Strip and that is Elara.  Elara is the Hilton Grand Vacations resort, which was originally the Planet Hollywood Towers.
