Vegas strip hotels temporarily beat price-fixing claims

A U.S. judge has dismissed a proposed class action accusing MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment and other hotel operators in Las Vegas of conspiring to overcharge for room rates

Oct 26, 2023

In a 13-page order, Chief U.S. District Judge Miranda Du in Nevada on Tuesday said the consumer lawsuit against the hotel companies and a pricing software platform suffered from "ambiguity" and "numerous deficiencies." Du said the plaintiffs could file an amended lawsuit within 30 days.

Key takeaways

  • The lawsuit sought class action status for consumers who rented a hotel room since 2019 on the famous Las Vegas Strip;
  • The complaint claimed the hotel defendants used shared data from Cendyn subsidiary Rainmaker to "defy supply and demand dynamics" involving vacant rooms and hotel prices;
  • The other defendants included Wynn Resorts, Treasure Island and Cendyn, a revenue management software developer for the hospitality industry.
