It Has Begun: What You Need to Know About Caesars Entertainment’s Parking Fees

Parking Fees, Caesars Entertainment,

The Parking Fees at Caesars Properties have been implemented, here’s what you need to know.

Yep, a topic much to the annoyance of many Las Vegas visitors and locals alike…parking fees. We’ll get through this together, promise. As parking fees are a fact of life on the Vegas strip (with very few exceptions), Caesars Entertainment has begun their implementation of parking fees at their resorts. Although they announced parking fees in November of 2016, the parking fees at the LINQ started last week. Parking fees at Caesars Palace start today. On April 6th the fees begin for Bally’s and Paris. Parking fees are no joke.

Reported back in November of this year, we laid out the Valet parking fees, and recently, the self-parking fees have been released as well.

Here’s a breakdown of self-park prices:

Bally’s, Caesars Palace, Cromwell, and Paris:

  • Up to 60 minutes: Free
  • 1 – 4 hours: $7.00
  • 4 – 24 hours: $10.00
  • Over 24 hours: $10 for each additional day or fraction of a day.

Flamingo, Harrah’s, and The LINQ:

  • Up to 60 minutes: Free
  • 1 – 4 hours: $5.00
  • 4 – 24 hours: $8.00
  • More than 24 hours: $8 for each additional day or fraction of a day.

No information is available on pricing at Rio Las Vegas, so we’re assuming it’s free to park there just like it’s free to valet park there as well. As always all these prices are subject to change, so check Caesars Parking Policy site for details. We rarely get around to updating articles here, always check with the property.

Interesting bits:

  • Nevada residents park for free with a Nevada State Driver’s License.
  • Parking for an hour or less is free even if you’re not a local.
  • Total Rewards tier levels of Platinum, Diamond, and Seven Stars park for free.
  • Hotel guests have in/out priveledges at the Caesars hotel they are staying in by use of the room key. Also, per the FAQ…”Once a guest has checked-in and paid for their parking, they can use their room key to access other Caesars self-parking facilities.” This means so long as you are staying at any Caesars resort, you can park at other Caesars resorts without incurring further charges. I confirmed this by contacting Caesars Entertainment directly.

There is no start date yet for when Flamingo’s parking fees will be implemented. As Planet Hollywood shares its parking structure with the Miracle Mile Shops, there is no plan yet. So it might be free to park there for some time, I would imagine they don’t have a plan to police the difference between hotel parking and shopping parking, and what would stop a hotel guest from parking in the shopping parking areas, etc. Logistics can be a bitch sometimes, even for Caesars Entertainment.

  1. What with resort fees and now parking fees it could spell the end off holidays to Vegas. It would appear that greed knows no bounds.

    I wonder if the Monorail will see increase in riders because of this? I’d hope their marketing department is doing something out there?

    Well, I guess with my losing record in Caesars’ properties, under an hour is all the time I would need to lose it all! But forget the dining options now.

  4. Even though it will suck to have to pay to park at these properties, at least one positive aspect is that if you’re staying at one of their properties you’ll only have to pay once per day to park at any of their other properties.

  5. So glad both the wife and myself have Platinum status

    If you get a Total Rewards Visa card, you will be bumped up to Platinum tier level, which will get you not only free self-parking but free valet parking. Charge $5,000 on the card in a calendar year, and you’ll get Platinum tier status for the following calendar year.

    The M life MasterCard bumps you up to Pearl tier level, which qualifies you for free self-parking. The terms of service state you will maintain Pearl status as long as there is activity on the card, so there is apparently no minimum amount you must charge annually to the card.

    Neither card has an annual fee, and both will earn you bonus points for spending at the respective hotel properties. If you pay your c.c. balance(s) in full each month and have a car during trips to Las Vegas, getting one of the cards is a no-brainer.

    Why not park at the rio and take the shuttle over to the strip?

    The topic about Planet Hollywood parking structure being paid or unpaid is missing a key piece of information from most of the Vegas chatty internet people (looking at you Scott R. and Micheal M.) Even thou I’m not an owner at the Elara Grand Vacations (time shares are the devil). I am a frequent guest at this property for years even when it was the PH West-gate back in the day. I have a feeling Caesars can’t get Hilton (or the Miracle Mile shops) on board to start charging guests. I wonder if time-share owners at the Elara would have grounds to terminate their contracts with Hilton if they started charging for parking? I’m also curious how MGM Veer towers which I believe is all time shares as well deals with the paid parking now. If the Planet Hollywood parking structure gets no paid machines I’m afraid that this parking structure will be very full and busy as the secret gets out this parking structure is free and centrally located on the strip.

      I kinda wanted people to draw their own conclusions as to where they can find parking that “is free and centrally located on the strip.” :)

  9. Hundley said it all. It is so easy to go around the parking fees.

  10. thank you for the post Michael, but I already know what I need to know about parking at CET properties. I AVOID THEM ENTIRELY! while I may not be a high-roller, I make 4 trips a year to Vegas, 6 nights each. it is their loss not mine. they won’t get me for resort fees, or parking fees, or my gambling bankroll.
