In Las Vegas, Wynn Resorts Limited is reportedly set to follow the example earlier set by MGM Resorts International and institute car-parking charges for patrons at its Wynn Las Vegas and attached Encore Las Vegas properties.
According to a report from the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, the casino operator will begin charging customers to park their cars at the two developments from August 7 although the first hour is to be complimentary with the second hour costing $7.
From there, customers are to reportedly be charged $12 to park their cars for up to four hours while an entire day is to cost them $15.
“Recent planned developments within the resort are increasing parking demands,” read a statement from Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts Limited. “New guidance, ticketing and payment systems have been installed to ensure a convenient parking experience for visitors and registered hotel guests while reducing parking overflow from neighboring resorts.”
The Las Vegas Sun reported that the autumn saw MGM Resorts International become the first major casino operator to break the long-standing Las Vegas tradition of free casino parking while Caesars Entertainment Corporation later followed suit at its eight properties in the city before The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas instituted charges in May.
“Registered hotel guests will have valet fees applied to their guest folio and receive in-out privileges throughout their stay,” read the statement from Wynn Resorts Limited. “Non-hotel guests can pay at departure with assistance from an attendant. Non-hotel guests do not receive in-out privileges.”
