Caesars to end free parking at Vegas resorts

Caesars Entertainment has announced it will introduce paid valet and self-parking programs beginning late December.

Caesars runs nine properties on the Las Vegas Strip, including Caesars Palace (home of Omnia Nightclub), The Linq, Harrah’s, Flamingo, Bally’s, and Paris.

A statement yesterday said they’ll launch paid valet service at The Linq and Harrah’s in December but did not note specific timelines for the implementation of the program at other properties. Self-parking will remain free until access equipment is installed. Pricing details were not disclosed.

Caesars said the change will enable them to improve the parking experience for guests, with many properties getting new electronic guidance systems to identify occupied and unoccupied spaces.

Nevada locals and certain levels of the Total Rewards program will still enjoy free parking privileges, at least for now.

MGM Resorts introduced a similar paid parking program in June. Parking fees at their resorts — including Monte Carlo, New York New York, MGM, Bellagio, and Mandalay Bay — range from free for the first hour to a maximum of $10 per day for self-parking. Valet costs $18 per day.
