Mandarin Las Vegas Adds $24 Resort Fee

The Mandarin is the latest Las Vegas hotel to add a Resort Fee.

The Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas has jumped onto the Resort Fee Bandwagon, adding a fee that kicked in on Jan 1st, 2012. The fee is $24 per night plus a 12% room tax, making the final total $26.88 per night stay. The fee is charged on all regular rooms and suites under 1500 square feet.

Inclusions:

$24+ Tax... Worth it?

I don’t see much value here. Internet access is fairly standard, the newspaper has to be requested at check-in and the two hour window for morning coffee could be seen as a cruel joke. On the plus side the option of taking classes in the fitness center is a nice feature for those into Yoga or Pilates, however I wonder what percentage of guests will take advantage of this amenity.

Dying Breed

The only non-resort fee hotels now left on the Las Vegas Strip are the collection of Harrah’s properties and the Cosmopolitan. How long can Harrah’s hold out? They market themselves as a Resort Fee Free company, yet they charge fees in Atlantic City & other locations.

    Just stop going. Vegas is now a complete top-off with everybody expecting tips for everything they do. Hotels have joined in on the assault of customers pockets. Just go somewhere else and let em all stew in their collective greed.
