This fee is required by the Venetian/Palazzo and is not optional. This fee is lower than the hotel’s typical resort fee ($29) as part of your reservation through the Summit registration system.
My hotel confirmation says I have a suite but I didn’t book this; am I being charged more?
No. Both The Venetian and The Palazzo offer all-suite accommodations at their hotels.
When will my credit card be charged a deposit?
The hotel will be charging one night’s room/tax as a guarantee for your reservation during the week of March 7, 2016 and will be applied to your stay.

Any unused authorized funds will be released back to you between 3-5 business days after your departure. Because of this hold, it is recommended that you use a credit card for these authorizations so that your personal funds on your debit card will not be affected during your stay.
