More Than a Dozen Vegas Hotels Waive Resort Fee for 2010 SEMA Show

  resort fees
  More than a dozen hotels along the Las Vegas Strip have decided to waive "resort fees" for 2010 SEMA Show and AAPEX attendees.

Exhibitors are busy ramping up for the 2010 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, November 2–5, and, so far, more than 1,400 companies have reserved booth space, with more than 200 of them being first-time exhibitors.

To help attendees and exhibitors get the best hotel prices, Show organizers have negotiated with several properties in Las Vegas to waive newly instituted “resort fees” currently implemented throughout the city.

Properties that have agreed to waive the resort fee for attendees of the SEMA Show and AAPEX who book in the block include: Circus Circus, Excalibur, Hard Rock Hotel, Hooters Casino Hotel, Luxor, Mirage Hotel, Monte Carlo Resort & Casino, New York New York, PH Towers Westgate, Planet Hollywood, Sahara Hotel, Stratosphere, Treasure Island, Tropicana Resort, Trump International Hotel and Tower, Venetian Resort Hotel and the Westin Casuarina.



The resort fees will be waived at these properties only when reserving through the SEMA Hotel Booking Service. Hotel rooms reserved directly through the hotel or other services will still be charged a resort fee.



While many Las Vegas hotels have chosen to institute a resort fee, SEMA has also partnered with several properties that don't institute the supplemental charges, including ARIA Resort and Casino, Bally’s Casino Resort, Bellagio, Bluegreen Club 36, Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Harrah’s Hotel Las Vegas, Hilton Grand Vacation properties, Imperial Palace Hotel, Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas Marriott Suites, Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, MGM Grand Hotel, Paris Las Vegas, Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel, Residence Inn by Marriott, Rio Suite Hotel, Rivera Hotel and the Springhill Suites.



The one hotel with a resort fee in SEMA’s official block is the Signature at MGM Grand. The fee is reduced for Show attendees from $20 to $10, however, if booked before August 27. The Mandalay Bay Resort has offered an option to add its $20 Resort Fee at check-in rather than making it a requirement if you stay at the hotel.
