South Point Adding A Resort Fee, Too
9777 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map]
Remember when Oprah surprised her audience with cars and was all like, and you get a car, and you get a car and you get a car! Well, subtract the thrilling excitement and replace "car" with "resort fee" and you get the state of things in Vegas.
Since last July, the Plaza added one ($10), the Cosmo added one ($25) and all of Caesars Entertainment's Vegas properties added one ($10-$25). And, you guessed it, one more resort is saying, 'wait for me!'
The Las Vegas Advisor reports that South Point will add a resort fee as of March 1. Guests will be charged $12.50 a night. According to its website, the fee will include:
...in-room Wi-Fi, fitness center access, local and toll free in room phone calls, boarding pass printing, airport shuttle (based on availability), 24-hour complimentary parking and a casino funbook.
Obviously, the best perk here is the
already complimentary parking free in-room Internet. Of course, South Point already offered free WiFi in its public spaces, but it's best not to think of that. Now, the question is -- who's next? M Resort? LVH? More downtown hotel-casinos? Lay out your guess down below.
