It's going to be a long year because these hits just won't stop.
It hasn't even been a month yet since our 2015 resort fee guide dropped and already we've had to update it four times. Over the last few weeks, Golden Nugget has zinged guests with a $22.60 nightly charge, Cosmo's fee climbed to $30 before tax, and Hooters jumped to $15.95 pre-tax. The only good resort fee news we had (if that's not an oxymoron) was hearing TI was raising its future stay credit (offered as a resort fee amenity) from $20 to $25.

After news of not one, but two new resort fee hikes (if you haven't heard, read here and here) and the enacting of brand new resort fee in downtown this month, we were quite wary when an email from Treasure Island referencing the nightly charge hit our inbox. This time, however, we're much relieved to pass on a spot of good news. No, TI is not rescinding its resort fee, but it is making it more of a value and it is still optional, if you book your stay a certain way.
“Hooters rings in the New Year by raising its resort fee.” Sound familiar? That’s because it’s exactly how the just-off-the-Strip casino hotel started 2014. One year later, they’re doing it again. We were perplexed by the increase last year, but we’re really puzzled now after scouring the Hooters website for an explanation of this month’s bump to $15.95 (pre-tax):

On Monday, Golden Nugget ended its $5 Downtown Destination Fee in exchange for a $22.60 tax-inclusive resort fee. But, if you don't want to pay, you don't have to. Of course, there's a string attached.
Just days after the release of our 2015 Resort Fee Guide, we already have our first update. The Vegas Rover Facebook page is reporting that downtown's Golden Nugget will enact a nightly $22.60 tax inclusive resort fee beginning Monday, January 19.

With more hotels charging resort fees than not, the year of 2014 was all about that bump.
On the Strip or off it, nightly charges continued climbing to new heights. Since we published our 2014 guide a year ago, Boyd Gaming raised its rates and enacted a flat fee of $12.99 at The Orleans, Suncoast and Sam's Town. MGM Resorts raised the charges at all of its properties by two to five bucks. Caesars Entertainment instituted a one-rate-fits-all-properties fee of $25 in November 2014 and has, somehow,
sneakily already topped that with five of its resorts now at $29. Hooters, Silver Sevens, Silverton, Plaza and Palms also bumped their resort fees higher in 2014.

What a difference a year makes. After a shocking reversal on resort fees in 2013, Caesars Entertainment is now hiking the charges at six of its Vegas properties, instituting the same flat rate at all its Strip resorts.

The off Strip casino-hotel used to charge $4.99 for standard rooms and $9.99 for its suites. Now, the resort fee is a flat $9.99 (not counting tax), no matter the spaciousness of your room type. The policy change quietly went into effect September 1. Here's what the website says guests receive for their money:
