It's not a replacement benefit.
I guess it is how they define "enhanced," but yes, on further thought, I agree with you. I typically don't stay at properties that impose a resort fee unless the fee combined with the room rate is still a better value. I was unaware of the "replacement" verbage. I will give that a go next time.

I just completed 2, 2 night stays at the Westin Puerto Vallarta which imposes a daily $15 resort fee. I was on a $102 nightly rate with a daily $100 resort credit so I wasn't too concerned about the resort fee. I was even upgraded to a Preium Ocean View, Club level with a Whirlpool on the deck.
