The company behind the Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, Park MGM, New York-New York, MGM Grand, Excalibur, Luxor, the Mirage, and Mandalay Bay plans to bring back paid self and event parking by June 1. The company reports that locals can park for free for three hours, so dine fast.
Paid parking originally started in 2016, but the gaming giant ended it when casinos reopened last June. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the first hour is free for everyone. Self-parking starts at $15 for up to four hours, and then $18 for four to 24 hours at the Bellagio, Aria, and Vdara. Each additional day is another $18. Other MGM properties fees start at $12 for up to four hours, then increase to $15 for four to 24 hours and another $15 for each additional day.
Event parking rates kick in on May 19, coincidentally the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Vegas Golden Knights playing at T-Mobile Arena. Paid parking for Vegas Golden Knights games ranges from $10 at the Luxor to $30 for on-demand parking at Park MGM and New York-New York.
And with shows returning to casinos, event parking rates return as well starting at $15 pre-paid at the Park Theatre, up to $20 for on demand parking and $25 for valet. Other events plan to charge from $15 to $25. Valet parking returns May 25 at Aria, the Bellagio, MGM Grand, and Vdara, and at all other properties on June 1. Budget accordingly.
Caesars Entertainment resumed paid parking in October, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity, and locals and hotel guests self-park for free.
