Palms Hotel & Casino - Why can't they just be upfront?
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I found a good deal online at the Palms hotel & casino. I put in the information and got a quote of "Total: $189.28". That seems a pretty good rate for that type of room. I looked in the "Important Information" on the check out page and suddenly I have to pay $40 more for a real total of $229.28. There is a $20/day resort fee - huh? It is mandatory so why isn't it in the original price? Just the hotel's way of ripping off the consumer. Why don't hotels go the way of airlines and be forced to put all their mandatory fees, charges, and taxes in the original quote?
I will say I think this is still a reasonable deal but I will not stay at a hotel that tries to hide this information under 'fine print'.
