Wynn Resorts, the major Las Vegas Strip casino/resort operator announced Thursday significant revisions to its “pay for parking” policy.
The company said in a statement that it would stop charging overnight guests for parking at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore effective July 1st and that non-hotel guests at its Las Vegas properties can again park for free if they spend a total of $50 at the resorts.
The $50 covers all game play as well as money spent at retail stores, restaurants, nightclubs, lounges, and shows. “We have come to believe that charging additional parking fees is counter to the personalized service we provide,’’ said Maurice Wooden, President of Wynn Las Vegas, in a statement.
For overnight guests, parking will now become one of the amenities covered by the $39 resort fee that all overnight guests pay. The resort fee will not rise, the operator said in a statement.
MGM Resorts International, the largest casino operator on the Strip was the first to begin paid parking in 2016. Caesars Entertainment Corp., the second-largest operator, shortly followed suit as did some other Strip properties. Las Vegas Strip properties with no parking fees or requirements for minimum spending to park for free include Treasure Island, the Las Vegas Sands’ properties Venetian and Palazzo and The Stratosphere.
Neither company has issued a statement regarding the Wynn move.
Daily rates range from $15 to $18 at MGM Resorts’ mid-market and high-end properties.
