Resort Fee.....what's the point?

Just got back from the Orchid on the big island of Hawaii. This resort charged a $12.50 per day "resort fee". For that I got use of pool towels, free local and 800 calls, and a newspaper in the morning. It's not like the fee was optional. I couldn't say "I don't plan to use your towels at the pool so don't charge me the fee". I'm just wondering what the point is. Just add the "fee" into the room price. Otherwise you just cheapen the resort by making the guests feel that they are being nickeled and dimed.
