Are you planning a trip to Las Vegas soon? If so, you’ll want to be sure to factor in the cost of resort fees. Resort fees are mandatory charges that hotels in Las Vegas levy on their guests, and they can add up quickly.

In this article, I’ll provide an overview of what resort fees are and how much they typically cost. We’ll also highlight some of the best resorts in Las Vegas that don’t charge resort fees. So whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly option or you just want to avoid those pesky extra charges, we’ve got you covered!

Las Vegas Hotels Without Resort Fees

Casino Royale is the only hotel on The Strip that doesn’t charge a resort fee. Downtown Las Vegas has two options–Binion’s and Four Queens. The other hotels that do not charge a resort fee are Off-Strip. I have stayed at Casino Royale and can say it is a great value. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

What are resort fees in Las Vegas?

Have you ever booked a hotel room in Las Vegas only to be surprised by an additional fee at check-in? These resort fees are becoming increasingly common, and they can significantly add to the cost of your stay. So what are resort fees, and why are they so expensive?

Simply put, resort fees are charges that hotels add to the advertised price of a room. They cover amenities like Wi-Fi, fitness center access, and bottled water in the room, and they can range from $15 to $45 per night. In some cases, resort fees are even higher than the cost of the room itself!

Below we list the resort fee at every popular hotel in Las Vegas.

Resort Fee FAQ

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about resort fees in Las Vegas:

Can I avoid paying resort fees in Las Vegas?

Many hotels in Las Vegas charge resort fees, which can add a significant amount to the cost of your stay. While there’s no sure way to avoid these fees altogether, there are a few things you can do to minimize them. You can look for deals and promotions that include free or discounted resort fees. For instance, Treasure Island often has a “No Resort Fee” promotion. If you’re a member of a hotel loyalty program, you may be able to get your resort fee waived. Finally, if you’re a big gambler, the hotel may comp your room and resort fee.

Is the resort fee mandatory in Las Vegas?

Yes. There are a few exceptions, but you should expect to pay resort fees in Vegas regardless of whether you access the fitness center, use the room wi-fi, or make local phone calls. Unless you’re gambling a lot in the casino or have a high-tier status with the players club, assume the fee is mandatory.

Are resort fees negotiable?

You may be able to negotiate resort fees at check-in if you’re not going to use the listed amenities. For example, if you’re traveling to Las Vegas in December and the pool is closed, you may ask them to waive or reduce the fee because you can’t use the amenity included in the fee. The chances of negotiating lower Vegas resort fees are pretty low.
