Las Vegas is allowed to reopen on June 4, 2020, with many resorts planning their reopening. We shared that BellagioNew York-New York, and MGM GrandThe Cosmopolitan, Wynn/Encore, Caesars Palace, and Venetian all will be open starting this Thursday.

Last month it was announced that MGM Resorts Offering Free Parking Upon Reopening with most hotels on the strip matching this. However, the latest announcement we’ve seen is that some hotels have starting waiving resort fees.

So far Sahara Las Vegas (previously SLS Las Vegas) is waiving resort fees on their site, and Cosmopolitan Las Vegas sent out an email to its Identity members with waived resorts fees.

Per Sahara Welcome to a Resort Fee-Free June,

At SAHARA Las Vegas, we’re celebrating our re-opening in true Vegas fashion – where guests are treated to impeccable service at our intimate, boutique resort, parking is always free and resort fees are waived on all hotel bookings for future stays. All. Month. Long.

Relax at SAHARA, where you will enjoy:

  • NO resort fees when you book by June 30
  • Access to two amazing rooftop pools 
  • Award-winning dining, including the famed Bazaar Meat By José Andrés
  • Exclusive SAHARA Cares health and safety program designed with your well-being in mind
  • Innovative contactless technologies such as a virtual concierge where assistance is just a text away
  • Free parking always

Bottom Line

Las Vegas has taken a big hit due to COVID-19, forcing the entire city to shut down for months. Hotels have already announced the return of free parking — which is here to stay. With not all amenities initially reopening, hotels may be forced to rethink resort fees, with some waiving them permanently.

  1. Don’t hold your breath. Resort fees aren’t goin’ away unless they are forced to…

  2. A lot of people have been cooped up in their house and have cabin fever. Even though it won’t be a true Vegas experience, staying in a luxurious hotel room for $100-200/nt and just hanging out there sounds good to me.

  3. I will not go to Vegas and get stuck with resort fees. It’s just ripping off the consumer. Remove those fees and you might get me back.

  4. Resort fees are a complete rip off. The fees are more than the cost of rooms. You make enough money off of gambling and food and drinks.
