7 days and counting down!

Packing has started. This time next week I will be in Vegas enjoying my favorite city over the holiday weekend. Like a kid at Christmas... I can't wait, I can't wait, is it time to go yet? * sigh * 1 more week to go.

Caesars CET properties now charging resort fees

For several years I have praised Caesars CET properties formerly Harrah's for not charging those terrible hated resort fees. I regret to say that I can no longer make those statements touting their greatness. On several Las Vegas message boards this past week this has been the heavy topic of discussion. Word has it that Platinum and up members will not have to pay the fees on comped rooms but the rest of us will have to pay them, even if your room is comped. I have known for years that gambling in CET properties have lower pay scales than other casinos in Las Vegas but we have always willingly gambled and taken our chances because they gave us upscale free rooms w/o fees. I know losing my $$$ will not break the bank so to say at the CET Casinos but I will have to reconsider my choices. We make one seven day trip to Las Vegas per year staying in CET casinos for 2 - 4 nights. The closest Total Rewards Casino to my home is 3.5 hours away (there are other local nonCET casinos closer 1.25 - 2 hrs). I will never ever be able to become a Platinum Member to have that fee waived so sadly this likely will be my last year (we already had our reservation made before the March 1st deadline) to stay with the CET unless changes are made.

We always rent a car when we visit Las Vegas but with the rising fees on rental cars this site is a wealth of information on how to get around for free if making a low budget trip.
