    Class action lawsuit on the way again Reno hotels, regarding resort fees

    A Pennsylvania law firm, Berger & Montague, is putting together a class action lawsuit against hotels in Reno which charged mandatory resort fees.

    It is not clear why they are only focusing upon Reno. Click this link to join the class, but only if you have paid resort fees at one or more of the following hotes:

    Atlantis (Reno)
    Grand Sierra
    Harrah's Reno
    Nugget Casino (Reno)
    Peppermill Reno
    Sand's Regency Hotel

    I hope this lawsuit comes to pass, and is successful. And I hope more like it follow.

    Resort fees are a total scam. They exist to hide the true price of the room in internet search engines. They should be illegal.

    If you don’t like resort fees, simply don’t patronize establishments that charge them. Why do you want the government to solve this “problem” instead of market forces? I thought you were a conservative.

    Because the resort fees are there for the purpose of misleading the public into believing they are getting a cheaper price than they are in reality.

    Resort fees are not simply an addition to the price point which can figure into the consumer's desire to purchase or not purchase the hotel room.

    They exist solely to allow hotels to publish a false price on the internet, without violating existing law.

    It won't be long before we see hotels for $10 per night with $150 resort fees. We already have some hotels in Vegas where the resort fees exceed the base cost of the room. Thus your "$20" hotel room ends up as $60, and you only know this once you read the fine print.

    Every time I book book a room in Vegas, the resort fees are calculated in the total price right before your credit card is charged. It is no different than a city’s hotel tax, sales tax, or parking fees not being advertised in the price. If you don’t like the way a business operates, you are free to stay somewhere else. That is the way our free market capitalist system works.
