I actually switched my allegiance from MGM properties to Total Rewards because the principle of further gouging the guests (resort fees are already bogus) to try and make up revenue lost from poor management just irks me...
we fly in and don't ever rent a car. . so have never actually made use of any Vegas casino property lots. .
but i think it's a terrible idea -- just based on what my friends who live locally are saying. They are going to refuse to visit any casino that charges, and it's going to cost the casinos some business.
Now.. to be fair. . . most locals don't seem to GO that often to strip, or Freemont casinos anyways (which is why the Strip casinos offer deep discounted show tix/food options for locals) . . .instead preferring to go to off strip places, typically with a ton of free open lots surrounding them anyways.
but I do think it's gonna cost them SOME business.
