Resort fees, the sometimes hidden charges that hotels tack on to cover conveniences from phone calls to Wi-Fi, increased Monday at six hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.

The fee will now be $25 per room per night at all eight Caesars Entertainment properties.

That’s an increase of $3 to $5 at Bally’s, Flamingo, Harrah’s, the Linq  (formerly the Quad), Paris and Planet Hollywood.

The rate was already $25 at Caesars Palace and the Cromwell.

The charge covers Wi-Fi access for two devices, local telephone calls and use of the hotels’ pools and fitness centers. The fee is nonnegotiable, even if a guest doesn’t use any of the services.

The rates still vary at MGM Resorts’ 14 properties along Las Vegas Boulevard. Circus Circus charges $14.50. The cost is $28 at properties such as Aria, Bellagio and Delano. Those prices include taxes. (Some other hotel companies tack on the tax later.)

The fee at four other big players on the Strip – the Venetian, the Palazzo, Wynn and Encore is $25 per night.

Unlike airlines, which now must include the total price, including taxes and fees upfront, hotels along the Las Vegas Strip continue to display a base price that’s lower than what a guest eventually pays.
