The District of Columbia is suing the Marriott for its use of resort fees, and using the Renaissance Las Vegas hotel as the focal point.
The attorney general filed the lawsuit Wednesday in District of Columbia’s Superior Court after an investigation conducted by all 50 state attorneys general.
The Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel is used as an example of how the company is allegedly deceiving customers by hiding a portion of its daily rates.
According to the lawsuit, this practice has earned Marriott hundreds of millions of dollars over the past decade, with at least 189 properties charging resort fees ranging from $9 to $95 a day.
Marriott has 28 hotels in the Las Vegas valley. The lawsuit is seeking a court order that requires Marriott to advertise the fees up front.
