Optional Resort Fees at Venetian
My trip to Vegas has me splitting time between Planet Hollywood and the Venetian. I started my stay at Venetian last night and woke up at 4am (again) this morning. I was bored so I decided flip on the laptop and see what was going on in the world. Low and behold a screen popped up asking if I wanted to pay the $12.99 wi-fi fee.
I was flummoxed (10 points please) as wi-fi was included in the resort fee when I stayed at Palazzo in April. I called down to the front desk to get the scoop and was way too confused for 4am. Resort fees are optional for some, but not all, invited guests who are tripping on comps of for tournaments (like me).
So, I could either pay the $17.99 resort fee and get everything included or I could pay $12.99 for wi-fi in my room or I could go down to the food court and snag free wi-fi. Guess what I chose…
So, if you’re keeping track on wi-fi at the Venetian here’s the deal.
Free wi-fi is available in the lobby, the food court on the casino floor and the Canal Shops as well as the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at the shops. Wi-fi will cost you something in your room, but depending on who you are it will be either $13 or $18.
If you’re hoping the resort fee may go away, forget it. The hotel is figuring out how to make it mandatory for everyone.
