These Las Vegas Hotels Have Recently Become More Costly to Stay at.

Many popular casino hotels in Las Vegas have recently increased their resort fees, making it more expensive to stay at these properties. MGM Resorts, the parent company of several large casinos and hotels, raised the fees at many of their properties, with some reaching as high as $50. These fees are added on top of the reservation cost and can range from $2 to $6 per night, depending on the specific property.

For example, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, the resort fee is now $45 and includes services such as unlimited local and domestic phone calls, airline boarding pass printing, digital newspaper access, fitness center usage, and in-room Wi-Fi. Additionally, guests with this fee can enjoy complimentary access to Paramount+ with SHOWTIME On Demand on their in-room television.

Here are the current resort fees at MGM Resorts:

1. ARIA Resort & Casino – $50.00
2. Bellagio Hotel & Casino – $50.00
3. Delano Las Vegas – $45.00
4. Excalibur Hotel & Casino – $37.00
5. Luxor Hotel & Casino – $37.00
6. Mandalay Bay – $45.00
7. MGM Grand Las Vegas – $45.00
8. New York-New York Hotel & Casino – $42.00
9. NoMad Las Vegas – $42.00
10. Park MGM – $42.00
11. Vdara Hotel & Spa at ARIA Las Vegas – $50.00

These pricing changes went into effect on Tuesday. Alongside the fee increase, MGM Resorts also adjusted their cancellation policy to require a 72-hour notice prior to check-in, instead of the previous 48-hour requirement.

However, members of MGM Rewards at the Gold, Platinum, or NOIR level can have the resort fee waived. Additionally, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program at the Ambassador level can also have their resort fee waived through a status match opportunity, thanks to the recent partnership between MGM Resorts and Marriott.

It’s worth noting that other hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, such as Wynn Las Vegas and Caesars Palace Las Vegas, also charge resort fees to their guests. At this time, there has been no response from these companies regarding any changes to their fee pricing, despite a request for comment from Travel + Leisure.

In the future, resort fees may potentially be eliminated as lawmakers and oversight groups are exploring ways to address this issue.
