Oh? You want to stay at a hotel without a resort fee while on the Las Vegas Strip? We have some overnight accommodation suggestion for you - Airbnb, VRBO and Home Away. Otherwise, you won't be staying anywhere. That's right - all 65,000 hotel rooms on the Las Vegas Strip charge misleading and deceptive hotel resort fees. From the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas to the Super 8 Las Vegas Strip, you cannot avoid these hidden fees.

Looking for a Vegas-y Casino + Hotel experience that is not trying to scam you? There is ONE honest hotel casino that remains in downtown Las Vegas that we wholeheartedly recommend - The Four Queens Casino & Hotel

Looking for any hotel at all that does not charge scam resort fees in Las Vegas? America's Best Value Inn, The LaQuinta Inn & Suites Las Vegas Tropicana and the Residence Inn Las Vegas do not charge resort fees. The America's Best Value Inn has a good honest price and is within walking distance of the Las Vegas Strip. 

Las Vegas has lots of interesting issues unique to what is going on in their resort fee scam world. 

Do hotels in Las Vegas really regularly advertise rooms that cost less than their resort fees?
Yes. The Circus Circus and the Excalibur Hotel, both on the Vegas Strip, regularly advertise room rates during the week that are less than their add-on mandatory resort fee. There is nothing stopping them from advertising a $1 room and a $99 resort fee, but for now they seem to be set at advertising $28 a night room with a $39.68 resort fee. 

Does every single Hotel Room on the Las Vegas Strip has a hotel resort fee / second room rate?
Yes. Though every hotel on the Strip is not worthy of being called a resort, they all have mandatory scam resort fees. There is total and absolute resort fee collusion on the Las Vegas Strip. This means that if you want to avoid a hotel without a resort fee, you will have to not stay at a hotel. The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that Airbnb has seen a surge in Las Vegas due to a "backlash to hotel resort fees."

What are the taxing issues related to Las Vegas resort fees?
Hotels say resort fees are an exchange of service. Resort fees are not an exchange of service, they are a way for the hotel to lie about their advertised price and charge a second hidden room rate when a guest gets to the hotel. At least the hotels in Vegas recognize that they are not providing any service. Resort fees in Las Vegas are not taxed at the sales tax rate (as a service item would be taxed at 8.15%). Resort fees in Vegas are taxed at the hotel occupancy tax rate (13.38%) as they should be as they are a second hotel room rate. That means consumers are being charged for two hotel rooms for one night when they stay in Las Vegas. 

Who is the #1 contributor to Nevada Senator Dean Heller's campaign coffers?
MGM Resorts

Do any hotels in the entire Las Vegas tourist area NOT charge resort fees?
YES! There are one in downtown Las Vegas that does not have resort fees, the Four Queens Hotel and Casino. There are also some options that are a bit further out that do not have resort fees. If you want to be where the action is and stay in a hotel casino, you have one honest option. 

What is being done to stop this tourist scam in Las Vegas?
Nothing. I, Lauren Wolfe lawyer and consumer advocate, have personally reached out to every member of the Las Vegas City Council, every member of the Clark County Board of Commissioners, every state representative and senator in Las Vegas, the Attorney General of Nevada, the Mayor of Las Vegas and the US Senators for Nevada. No one has gotten back to me with interest in our sample legislation banning hotel resort fees. The hotel and gambling lobby in Nevada is very strong. We, all visitors to Las Vegas, have apparently been ignored in favor of political contributions. There has to be a few good politicos out there though. Politicos! Reach out anytime at hi@killresortfees.com

If all these hotels are just trying to mislead and deceive me with resort fees, do I have to pay this "resort fee"?
No. You do not legally have to pay any hotel resort fee.  Resort fees are in violation of Nevada's Deceptive Trade Practices Law. Forty-seven Attorneys General are currently investigating hotel resort fees for being deceptive and misleading. It is unlawful in the United States to tax internet services at hotel occupancy tax (as many hotels allege they provide with a resort fee) due to the Internet Tax Freedom Act. The Wynn is currently getting sued over this. You legally can and should refuse to pay any hotel resort fee. For more information on how to do that, visit here
