Only In Vegas Does The Resort Fee Include Porn

Resort fees may not be our favorite thing in the world (in fact they’re one of our least favorite things in hotel land) but since it looks like they’re here to stay (particularly in Vegas), we may as well appreciate some of the loopier things that come with them.
We were looking into booking a room at the boutiquey Rumor Resort in Vegas yesterday, when we noticed the daily resort fee of $11.95. It stung, a lot, so we called up to ask what it included. And were jazzed to find that as well as the usual - valet parking (uh, that’s always free in Vegas), local calls (gee, thanks, cos they aren’t included on our monthly package or anything), water by the bedside (purified water? Wowee), and WiFi (ok, that we’ll take) – the resort fee also includes free access to one adult channel.
We were confused. Did the nice lady in reservations really just say that? So we said, “What, you mean like porn?” And she stifled a giggle and said yes, but only the one. Channel, you understand. Not film.
And if that’s perked you up, you’ll be even happier to know that the Rumor has a half price rooms deal until the end of today. Book on their website for any date until November 30 2011 and you’ll get 50 percent off, meaning suites (they’re all suites) start at $54.50 (plus that
porn resort fee). If you’re staying on a Friday or Saturday night, though, you’ll need to stay a minimum two nights.
But that way you get two free porn channels, right?
