Less than two years after beginning what has become a wholesale change from free to paid hotel parking in Las Vegas, MGM is already charging hotel visitors even more to park.
This week, the company raised parking rates at its 12 Las Vegas properties, as follows:
- Aria, Bellagio, Vdara – Self-parking is free for the first hour, $9 for one to two hours, $15 for two to four hours, and $18 for four to 24 hours. Valet: $21 for up to two hours, $24 for two to four hours, and $30 for four to 24 hours.
- Circus Circus – Self-parking is free, but valet starts at $12 for up to two hours, and rises from there.
- Delano, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York – Free self-parking for the first hour, $9 for one to two hours, $12 for two to four hours, and $15 for four to 24 hours. Valet: $16 for up to two hours, $18 for two to four hours, and $24 for four to 24 hours.
- Excalibur and Luxor – Free self-parking for the first hour, then $6 for one to two hours, $8 for two to four hours, and $10 for four to 24 hours. Valet: $12 for up to two hours, $14 for two to four hours, and $16 for four to 24 hours.
MGM also raised its parking rates in April, so this is the second increase in just two years.
Free self-parking is available to members of MGM’s M life Rewards program who achieved Pearl, Gold, Platinum, or NOIR status. Free valet is offered to Gold, Platinum, and NOIR Members.
Just as they followed MGM’s initial move into charging for parking, other area hotels can now be expected to follow MGM’s lead in pushing those fees even higher.
