LAS VEGAS – Caesars Entertainment Corp. has hiked resort fees at four more properties on the Strip.

On Tuesday, resort fees at Bally’s, Flamingo, The LINQ Hotel and Harrah’s Las Vegas increased from $35 to $37 per night. With tax, that extra nightly charge tops $41.95.

The jump brings the company “in line with relevant competitors,” according to Caesars spokesperson.

Caesars continues fees push after MGM, Wynn

Resort fees are an unpalatable dish in Las Vegas, but casino companies have come to depend on the concealed nightly charges that run as high as $45 to drive revenue and appease shareholders.

In October, two months after Caesars Entertainment CEO Tony Rodio expressed concern about the repercussions of targeting travelers with resort fees, the company joined the contentious hospitality trend and raised fees at three properties. 

• Caesars Palace and Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace fees: $44.21 per night (inclusive of tax) to $51.02. 

• Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino: $36.28 per night (inclusive of tax) to $39.68. 

A fee trend grows along the Strip 

Caesars is the third major company to raise resort fees on the Strip to the highest they’ve ever been. 

In August, MGM Resorts International raised resort fees $6 at three high-end properties along the Strip. That means a stay at ARIA, Vdara or Bellagio with now run an extra $45 per night — on top of the base room rate.

The increase at the MGM properties came three months after Wynn Resorts raised resorts fees at Wynn and Encore from $39 to $45.

Resort fees are mandatory charges that pay for the services guests have come to expect. Labeled everything from resort fees to hotel fees to destination fees, the charges could include free Wi-Fi and access to the pool. At resorts in big travel cities like New York and San Francisco, they might even include a free drink or discounted breakfast.
