Vegas Resort Fees Racket Adds More To Room Costs PDF Print E-mail


Along with all the reduced customers, scared away by the coronavirus, Sin City decided to find another way to rob you. Resort fees at Bally’s, Flamingo, The LINQ Hotel and Harrah’s Las Vegas have been increased from $35 to $37 per night.

With resort tax, that extra nightly charge tops $41.95. It means that all the ads touting rooms at $99.99 will actually set you back at least $141.94 per night. And with coronavirus causing many of the famed Vegas buffets to close, you’ll need to search the Strip for any of the bargain buffets still open.

As fears of the worldwide epidemic spread, one of Sin City's most popular traditions is being eliminated along the Strip: some of the most popular all-you-can-eat buffets. On March 15, MGM Resorts International will temporarily close the buffets in its hotels.

Until further notice, the posh buffets will be no more at the company's seven Strip hotels: ARIA, Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Luxor and Excalibur. Sorry, visiting Vegas foodies.
