Caesars joins the paid parking parade

Written by Ben Blaschke

Caesars Entertainment has announced that it will follow the lead of MGM Resorts and introduce paid parking to some of its Las Vegas Strip properties.

In a statement released this week, Caesars said it will begin phasing in its paid parking scheme at two of its resorts, The Linq and Harrah’s, before the end of the year with other properties to follow suit at an unspecified time. The off-Strip Rio, home of the World Series of Poker, will remain free.

The new charges will apply to valet services initially and to self-parking once the necessary machinery was installed. Local residents with approved ID and high-tier members will be allowed to continue parking for free.

Caesars owns nine properties either on or near the Strip.
