The new Nobu Hotel has barely been open a full month and already some changes are being made. And we wish it were for the better.

Caeasars Palace, who along with its sister properties in Vegas, so valiantly fought the resort fee craze a few years ago, has finally given in and will now be charging $10-$25 a night at their hotels. Those fees will include a variety of services and amenities, among them, WiFi and fitness center access. We're guessing Nobu, a luxury hotel located within Caesars, will be charging near the $25 mark but we're still awaiting confirmation of the exact price.

In a statement issued by Gary Thompson, director of corporate communications at Caesars Entertainment, he cited the "increasing demand from our guests to provide a package price instead of the inconvenience of separate fees."

Um, ok. We're not really sure who these guests are as we often hear people absolutely hate resort fees, especially if they don't use WiFi or the gym (or the notary service or free 800 calls and other random services these fees often include.) But we suspect that in a town rife with these charges, Caesars literally could not afford to hold out any longer.

Still eager to stay at the Nobu Hotel Las Vegas? Rooms are holding steady at $249 a night next month. We'd do it and pay the $25 resort fee just to have some Nobu breakfast in bed.
