    FWIW I have a Hilton Award booking in Las Vegas in May and it quite clearly states that there is a $45 plus tax resort fee payable. Its at the Waldof Astoria if that makes any difference over a busy three day weekend where cash rates are $600+ .

    I also had a resort fee on an award booking at Hilton Marco Island last year. That too was clearly outlined at the time of booking.

    • Brighton Belle says:

      Same here. 5 nights in New York in Hilton and they charged resort fees.

    • Chris says:

      T & C’s state “ At hotels with resort fees, members on reward stays booked using all Points, or using a Promotional free night reward (e.g., issued by credit card partners, etc.) will not pay resort fees.”
      I have never been charged Resort Fees on an Award stay and according to the rules should not.

  • Dawn says:

    Very nice competition to win the UEFA tickets particularly now that UK citizens don’t have to pay for their visas 🙂

  • Scandinavian traveler says:

    It does say that your entry will be invalid unless you sign up to Hotels.com rewards when you’ve entered the competition though.

  • Roger says:

    Rob,

    Any chance of doing any special promo / deal with Billhop to make payments?
    I will probably bite at 1.5 to 2% to pay HMRC with Amex.

    • Anna says:

      Can you pay HMRC via Billhop? There are some institutions where you can’t use this route, e.g. some finance companies.

      • Peter K says:

        I’ve used it to pay HMRC several times in the past.

      • RussellH says:

        Yes you can. Done it several times…

        It was worth it:-
        a) to meet a spnd target on an SPG Amex.
        b) when someone here kindly used my sign-up code, giving me £500 worth of free transactions

    • Rob says:

      Might do something in March around Council Tax bills but they don’t like to include Amex due to their high fees.

  • mradey says:

    Roberto – I agree the booking does state the resort fee applies. In practice, at the Hilton property I stay at, no resort fee is charged for bookings made entirely with points. If you use the cash and points portion then the resort fee is payable.

    If concerned, I would contact HH customer support.

  • Roger says:

    Onefinestay – £200 back on Amex

    • Vit says:

      Just saw and saved mine. T&C doesn’t really mention any minimum spend as long as the payment is made online and in GBP. £200 is a great deal!

      • BJ says:

        But there is a 3 night minimum stay at most properties so the offer is really worth (substantially) less than 30% off in most cases.

        • meta says:

          And you can find almost all of the onefinestay properties either on AirBnB or elsewhere cheaper, sometimes even half the price. So saving is practically zero.

  • Frankie says:

    Resort fees are ridiculous in Vegas. I’ve seen the nightly resort fee being higher than the nightly room price for a few hotels. In the case of Circus Circus the resort fee was double the room price. BA’s seat charge is also out of control. I’ve lost my Silver and booked a 2 for 1 CW flight to MEX this week. Seat charge was £111 each!

    • mark2 says:

      I assume the ‘seat charge’ is the voluntary seat selection charge.

    • Lumma says:

      If you’ve lost silver, surely you’re now bronze and can choose for free in the last 7 days?

      • Frankie says:

        Yes that’s correct. My point was that the seat charges keep creeping up like the Vegas resort fees.

  • AndyGWP says:

    My recollection is that ResortsWorld is / was a Genting Casino initiative aimed at attracting a Chinese market to Las Vegas (hence the Pandas etc). Assume they bailed on that idea and sold to Hilton, or have sublet / partnered in some way?

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      The idea of an Asian themed casino to attract chinese visitors was tried in a smaller way with the Lucky Dragon and bombed big-time. It never made sense in this location and I’d imagine the LD experience prompted a rethink sharpish. The development has to be seen hand-in-hand with a massive expansion of the nearby convention centre; without that, the location has not been viable for higher-end properties for decades. Looks like a very sensible peice of strategy as convention-attending business folk that will drive this property are likely to be loyalty-scheme devotees.
