This hotel, like many in Las Vegas, adds hotel resort fees to all bookings upon check in. It’s $12.99/day and is said to pay for things like the use of the pool, parking, fitness center and internet. Stuff that is normally included with a hotel stay in other cities.
There are steps to complain about these resort fees as they don’t show up when making an online reservation. Some hotels are charging $25-$50/night, and elite hotels are going the distance and increasing it to $75-$100. It’s a huge cash grab as it’s hidden, and won’t go away anytime soon.
Generally I like this hotel. However this trip the A/C was locked on 74degrees and wouldn’t get any colder, seems that the freon is getting old. It made sleeping very tough on a hot night.
The rooms are being converted and redesigned. There are no more bathtubs and have been changed out with a shower curtain and open floor tile. I’m sure this is to make it easier to clean, and perhaps to save water to avoid people taking a bath.
This hotel is losing it’s appeal and the limited help from the front desk is not going to have the A/C fixed any time soon.
The bed was decent, and the restaurants are still pretty good, but I’m wondering if it’s only a matter of time before they follow the trend of this hotel.
