New York-New York: Ripping you off.
Posted Feb 27, 2017
NYNY is a mid-range hotel by today's Vegas-strip standards. Physically and aesthetically it's fine; you won't be disgusted or thrilled.
Until you examine the charges... then you (if you have any self respect) will be disgusted.
First let's discuss this "resort fee" scam. NYNY will attempt to charge you $34 PER NIGHT for things you didn't ask for. They claim it's for things like the health center, Internet access, and phone usage. This is a crock. DO NOT ACCEPT THIS. They even attempt to charge this while the pool is closed. Tell them to take these charges off.
And here's new level of offense: trying to charge you for self-parking. I've never seen this before in Vegas. NYNY says, NOPE: Don't come to our hotel or casino; because if you do, we're going to CHARGE YOU ADMISSION TO SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE.
Oh, and another rip-off: The "Irish pub" in the casino charges A COVER. Yes, a pub. And they double the $5-per-person cover to $10 on weekends (as of this review).
Are you going to reward rip-offs like those perpetrated by NYNY and allow them to become the norm? Las Vegas has forgotten its place, but you shouldn't. Regardless of how well-traveled you are or aren't, be aware that this behavior is a test or your ignorance or your will. When people let themselves be gouged like this, we all lose.
Beyond that, NYNY is a very hungry experience on late nights. On Saturday night in Vegas at 2 a.m., there was essentially no food on offer in this casino. Not a ham sandwich.
