    Will make resort fees for those three resorts greater than $50 after taxes.

    For now those are the only three resorts announced.

    Dumb.

    Is there any MLife level where resort fees are automatically waived? That was one nice thing about Diamond at CET, at least comped rooms were fully comped. Gold or higher at Cosmo too.

    I think it's based on your individual offer. But I would laugh if they forced a Noir to pay the resort fee.

    I thought Gold at MLife used to get them waived, but I see it's no longer listed as a benefit?


    I actually prefer the "theo based" wavier of resort fees myself as long as they are reasonable. Cosmo started waiving my resort fees automatically after two trips, even though I didn't go often enough to make gold. It's kind of wrong to get charged them if you play a decent amount per day, but don't go often enough to reach a higher tier.

    Really getting out of control it would be nice if you reached a certain level at least they would wave them


    I haven't paid Resort fees for quite a while at mlife but still it should be like CET if you reached Diamond you get them waived

    Some of our MLife offers say there WILL be resort fees, others say there MAY BE resort fees. The 3 higher tier properties always charge us. It’s a nice surprise when they aren’t on the bill at the end!

    Yea I know I've had offers that mention no resort fee, but it would be nice if you were platinum or whatever tier, that you knew there was never the option of them hitting you with the fees.

    I'm only a Platinum at Mlife (at the beginning I was Noir till they changed it) but I'm pleased I get a zero bill at any Mlife properties. I guess maybe if you have a host? I've never stayed anywhere without one since 2003? It's ridiculous what's happening,,,here's a free room but $50 bucks for the resort fee?

    For as long as I've had a host, I've never been hit with a resort fee. And it's not a back end deal either, when I check in there is never any charge for them.

    I test my offers as resort fees for me are only waived at the Luxor/Excalibur properties. That led me to actually try staying at Luxor last visit. I had a renovated tower room and enjoyed it. In December, I'll actually have a one-bedroom suite for a few nights that is bigger than my apartment :)

    While the website is glitchy, most often you can tell pretty fast if there will be a resort fee; under the button it will either list it or it will say it's included, meaning no charge.

    I agree, like how it used to be.
    Plus used to be if a casino sent you an offer for a "free" room it was always free. Now it may be free, or say "you may be assessed a resort fee, depending on x,y and z."
