aesars Entertainment announced Wednesday changes related to the self-parking policy of its seven Las Vegas properties. The updated plan, officials said, is intended to improve the overall guest experience.
Beginning Oct. 30, self-parking will remain free for Nevada residents with valid identification, registered hotel guests, and Caesars Rewards loyalty members rated Platinum and above.

All other guests will be charged to self-park at Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel + Experience and Harrah’s Las Vegas. Caesars Entertainment will donate all parking fee profits collected to several charitable organizations that support Caesars team members and local communities in need, through the end of the first quarter in 2021.
"With this updated self-parking policy, we intend to take care of our best customers – locals, hotel guests and loyal Caesars Rewards members – and provide them with ease and better access to our Las Vegas properties as they continue to stay and play with us," said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "We are pleased to give back by donating all parking fee profits collected to charitable organizations in the local community and helping our team members impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic."
All guests who enter Caesars self-parking garages are afforded a 60-minute grace period before parking rates apply. Self-parking at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will remain free for all guests.
Most hotel-casinos in Las Vegas began charging for parking in 2017, which upset many locals, KTNV reports. However, parking has been free at hotel-casinos since they were forced to close down because of the pandemic.
It is not known at this time if any of the other properties will also begin charging.
