LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Resort fees have become an increasingly contentious topic in the travel and tourism industry, but the pushback against the fees isn't stopping Caesars Entertainment from raising resort fees at three of their properties.

According a statement released by the casino giant, beginning today Caesars Entertainment will increase the cost of resort fees at three hotels: Caesars Palace, Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace and the Rio.

Resort fees at Caesars Palace and Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace will increase from $44.21 to $51.02 per night, inclusive of tax. The Rio will increase from $36.28 per night to $39.68 per night, also inclusive of tax.

Resort fees at all other Caesars Entertainment properties will remain the same. 

Resort fees are tacked on to a guest's room rate, and cover things such as a hotel's in-room wi-fi, local calls, fitness center, and swimming pool area. Such fees have come under fire from politicians for their lack of tranparency, such that legislation is in the works to do away with resort fees altogether. Fees would be included up front so a guest would have knowledge of them before the bill comes their way.
