Updated March 9, 2018 - 6:08 pm

Las Vegas Sands Corp. has joined other Strip hotel-casino operators in raising resort fees.

“As of March 6, The Venetian and The Palazzo increased our resort fee to $45,” Sands spokeswoman Alyssa Anderson said in an email.

However, unlike most of their Strip competitors, Las Vegas Sands properties still offer free parking.

Caesars Entertainment Corp., MGM Resorts International and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas this year have raised their resort fees between $2 and $5 to between $30 and $39.

Wynn Resorts has not increased its resort fee. It remains at $39.

“We have not planned a resort fee increase. We don’t raise fees on an annual schedule,” said Wynn spokesman Michael Weaver.

Resort fees cover amenities such as high-speed internet access and the use of swimming pools, fitness centers and business centers. The fees are charged regardless of whether guests use the amenities.
