Resort fees?

Looks like I am not the only one fed up with "resort fees":

How about waiving resort fees for elites, or maybe for the higher levels such as gold or platinum?  I refuse to stay at any property charging a resort fee.  It's a complete rip off.  Why can't these properties just build that fee into the room rate?  I am at a loss to understand...  I can honestly say that resort fees make me feel rage!  Or maybe offer a room rate without the resort fee and maybe those rooms aren't as desirable or you don't get a beach umbrella or whatever ridiculous perk you supposedly are getting for the resort fee.

 

Anyone had any luck getting Marriott to waive a resort fee?
