What You Need to Know to Get the Golden Nugget Resort Fee Waived

Why Do Hotels Make You Pay a Resort Fee?

A resort fee is a separate fee that a hotel guest is charged for staying there. The resort fee is charged along with the base room rate and tax. A resort fee can cover various things, including phone service, newspaper left at your door, high-speed internet access, use of the gym or pool, continental breakfast, etc.

Hotels charge resort fees to make more money. Unfortunately, they charge those fees even if you have no intention of using those extra perks.

Can I Refuse to Pay a Resort Fee?

A hotel manager may waive the resort fee to keep you happy if you're lucky. They might be afraid that you will file a complaint or write a bad review on Yelp or TripAdvisor. Plus, you can always dispute any resort fees charged on your credit card after the fact. However, some hotel managers may not eliminate your resort fees and access your room; you must agree to pay them beforehand.

One Way to Get Your Resort Fee Waived

One way to eliminate resort fees is to book your hotel through a travel agent. You can request that your agent call the hotel's general manager on your behalf and ask them to remove the resort fee during your stay.

How to Get Your Resort Fee Waived by Yourself

Having your hotel resort fees waived is not easy. First, you need to contact the front desk, either in person or by phone. If the front desk refuses, you can take it up with the general manager.

Unfortunately, negotiating with the front desk can be time-consuming. Whether you walk up to the front desk in person or call them on the phone, it can take hours waiting for the manager to come out and review the bill with you. As a result, deciding whether or not your resort fee gets waived can take up a significant amount of time that you should be using to enjoy your vacation.
