Incidental charges at hotels??

We are looking at staying at the wynn, wynn encore or veneitian but am being put off by the $150 a night incidental charge at the encore, does this apply to the wynn and Venetian? are other hotels cheaper?

It's a deposit, not a charge. You're only charged for what you actually use.

If you use a credit card then the deposit takes the form of a hold on your card which is lifted after you check out. Nothing will ever actually appear on your billing. The only instance where this may be an issue is if your card is close to its limit. Debit cards work slightly differently and others will hopefully offer advice if you need it there. There is a third option of a cash deposit. I would call Wynn and ask for specific details if that's your preferred option.

You're looking at three of the top end properties in Vegas, and with the high quality comes the high prices. That includes incidental charges too. Wynn's charges probably is similar to Encore, since they're under one ownership and connected to each other and all. I don't really think Venetian's will be cheaper in that regards either....most top Vegas hotel casinos will have incidentals ranging from $150-$200 a night. If you're not down with that, maybe you should look into booking a lower tier Strip hotel such as Flamingo or Monte Carlo or Harrah's. Or a downtown hotel.

I think you are talking about a security deposit, they just put a hold on your credit card to make sure funds are available if you do use things at the hotel like an in room movie, charge something to your room, etc. If you dont use any of the services or charge anything to your room the hold will just fall off and you arent charged anything, Pretty standard at any hotel not just in Las Vegas
