9 places on the Vegas Strip where you can still find free parking

Jay Jones

If you haven’t been to Vegas in a while, you may not know that some Strip resorts now charge for parking. Aria, New York-New York, Vdara, MGM Grand and others started charging visitors for self- and valet parking last summer.

But you can still find free parking along the Strip, if you know where to go.

 

1. Circus-Circus

Self-parking is free, but valet is not. Expect to pay $10 for up to four hours, and $15 for four to 24 hours.

 

2. The Cosmopolitan

Self- and valet parking are free, but only until May 16. After that, you get one free hour of self-parking and will pay $7 for up to four hours and $10 for four to 24 hours. And yes, that applies to hotel guests too.

 

3. SLS

All parking is free here. Plus, the hotel is the northernmost stop for the Las Vegas Monorail if you want to use public transit.

 

4. Stratosphere

This iconic spot offers free self- and valet parking.

 

5. Treasure Island

Not only does this independently owned hotel-casino not charge guests, but it intends to begin advertising as a fee-free parking destination on the Strip.

 

6. Trump International Hotel

Only valet parking is offered, but it’s complimentary.

7. The Venetian and the Palazzo

These sister properties are the only remaining mega-resorts that don’t charge for parking. Hotel officials say they have no plans to start charging either.

 

8. Wynn Las Vegas

Self-parking is free, but Wynn and Encore charge for valet services.

 

9. Shopping centers

Parking is free at several shopping centers along the Strip, including the Shoppes at Mandalay Place (between Mandalay Bay and the Luxor), the Shops at Crystals (in front of Aria and Vdara) and Fashion Show Mall (across the street from Wynn-Encore).

So who’s charging?

Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts have implemented fees for self-parking and valet at a broad swath of their properties along Las Vegas Boulevard. This week, MGM Resorts increased fees they started rolling out last year.

Want to pop into Bellagio or Aria for a meal or a show? Plan to fork over $20 for up to four hours in valet parking, double what it was before the increase Wednesday.

World’s Longest Racetrack Will Soon Be in Vegas, Not Germany

John Morris is building a proper Disneyland for speed freaks.

BY CHRIS TSUI
APRIL 10, 2017

By now, you might be fairly sick of hearing about the Nürburgring. It seems like anything and everything is being tested there these days, perpetuating a petty automotive pissing contest that does nothing but make cars needlessly harsh for actual road use. If billionaire entrepreneur John Morris has his way, however, the ‘Ring’s days in the sun might be numbered. In a report by Bloomberg Businessweek, Morris outlines his grand plans for an “adult Disneyland” that includes a 15-mile racetrack as a main attraction—that’s 1.9 miles longer than the Nordschleife’s 13.1 miles. Located 45 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club is a rich guy’s oasis, with 42 condos, a pool, indoor shooting range, and facilities where one can jet pack around Morris’ man-made lake. Future plans include a dirt track, a community of luxury homes, a hotel, restaurants, theaters, a car wash, and a coffee shop. The price for all of this is steep, with memberships requiring $45,000 up front and $5,000 a year in dues.

Other than hosting members track days and driving schools, Spring Mountain has also been rented out by car manufacturers for testing. When Morris finishes the expansion, it’s set to topple the Nürburgring as longest test track ever. Its location in the Nevada desert means far less of the grueling elevation changes the Green Hell is famous for, which could make for less aggressively sprung cars if Spring Mountain is truly the next Nürburgring in the testing world.

6 Things You Should Know About Monday’s NCAA Championship Game

Vegas still doesn’t believe in Gonzaga, but the stats say the Bulldogs are for real.

By Neil Paine
Filed under March Madness

After a couple of nail-biters in Phoenix on Saturday, we’re down to one game remaining in the 2016-17 NCAA men’s basketball season. So trust your gutand be sure to box out under the basket — here’s your cheat sheet of what to watch for in Monday night’s championship game.

No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 1 North Carolina

Where to watch: CBS, 9:20 PM EDT
Who’s favored: According to the FiveThirtyEight model, Gonzaga has a 62 percent probability of winning the national championship. If that surprises you, you’re not alone — in a break with the stats, Vegas has the Tar Heels favored by 2 points. (More on that later.)

Why Gonzaga can win:

  • Simply put, the Zags are the statistical darlings of this championship game. They rank ahead of UNC not only in the FiveThirtyEight statistical power ratings, but also in those of college-hoops stats guru Ken Pomeroy, USA Today’s Jeff Sagarin, and plenty of other analysts. Going into the tournament, Gonzaga faced questions about whether its weak strength of schedule was properly accounted for in these systems’ various adjustments, but by now, even the most hardened Bulldogs skeptic has to admit that the Zags are for real. By the numbers, at least, Gonzaga deserves to have the edge.
  • Gonzaga’s defense is the best in the country according to Pomeroy’s ratings. It specializes in forcing teams into poor shots in the half court by using a good transition D that takes away quick buckets — the Zags are allowing the 14th-fewest transition chances per play of any team in the tourney — and an impenetrable interior defense of preposterous size. That formula might be custom-made to defeat a North Carolina squad that is efficient in transition but hasn’t been very effective in the half court during the tournament thus far. I’d thought the Heels’ recent poor shooting might reverse itself against Oregon, but instead UNC had one of its worst nights of the season from the field. (Using a twice-injured Joel Berry II didn’t help — he went 2-for-14 from the floor, while teammate Isaiah Hicks went 1-for-12.) With one game left, against a team whose defensive strengths match up particularly well against North Carolina’s offensive tendencies, the Tar Heels might not be able to avoid another disappointing shooting night.

Las Vegas welcomes Raiders with open arms, big hopes

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A city famous for its over-the-top persona is eagerly welcoming an NFL franchise that boasts an equally outsized reputation and the promise of big-league legitimacy for the desert gambling oasis, which up to now has seen major sporting events just passing through.

Las Vegas is no stranger to big time events catering to all tastes. Champion boxers lace up their gloves at glitzy hotel-casinos on the Strip. Thousands turn out for NASCAR races. The National Finals Rodeo rides into town every year.

With the addition of an NHL expansion franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights, and as of this week the Raiders, Las Vegas believes it has arrived as something substantially more than a one-off venue.

Jubilant state and local officials were quick to welcome the team after the league’s relocation approval Monday. Sports fans who had been confined to minor league baseball and an assortment of lower-division hockey teams gathered downtown to celebrate Monday night.

On Tuesday, the state’s largest newspaper proclaimed “Touchdown, Vegas!” on its front page.

“We’ve needed a sports team in this city for a very, very long time,” Las Vegas resident Sean Manchanda said. “If football works well in Green Bay and other tier II cities like Jacksonville, even Phoenix, it will work in Vegas. Locals are very much in support.”

CinemaCon Buzzmeter: What’s Hot and Cold in Las Vegas

Hollywood’s biggest studios are gathered in Las Vegas to preview their upcoming films for theater owners and the press. Are there any sure bets? Here’s the latest buzz from CinemaCon, which runs through Thursday:]

CINEMACON BUZZMETER
WHAT’S HOT AND COLD AT THIS YEAR’S EXHIBITOR CONFAB IN VEGAS:
“BLADE RUNNER: 2049”
Visually stunning, with a few sly nods to Ridley Scott’s 1982 original and a super creepy Jared Leto. Sign us up. (Sony/WB)
“DOWNSIZING”
Sure to go down as Alexander Payne’s most bizarre film. Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a couple who decide to shrink themselves in order to live the good life. The 10 minutes that screened were out there, but hilarious and compelling. (Paramount)
“BAYWATCH”
A gag where Zac Efron’s dim bulb life guard examines a dead man’s genitals is worth the price of admission. (Paramount)
“JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE”
The filmmakers would have us believe that “Jumanji” is a beloved property. That may or may not be the case, but the combination of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black should translate into a big global hit. (Sony)
“ANNIHILATION”
Hard to know what’s going on in this Natalie Portman thriller, but it sure looked scary. (Paramount)
“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”
Lots more Michael Keaton as the villainous, Tony Stark-hating Vulture. Tom Holland has a wide-eyed appeal that could offer a fresh take on a familiar hero, but after five different Spider-Man movies, there’s a risk of fatigue. (Sony)

Sam Nazarian: SBE to merge with Hakkasan Group; Hakkasan to be folded into SBE

Wall Street is abuzz this morning with billionaire hotel owner Sam Nazarian’s confirmation that he expects to close a giant merger with Hakkasan Group within 60 days that will form a huge hotel, restaurant and nightclub operation headquartered in Las Vegas with a $1 billion valuation.

The Wall Street Journal and other New York banking sources have confirmed the deal along with Sam’s confirmation. They say although it will be deemed a merger, Hakkasan will be folded into SBE.

Sam confirmed in a news release: “SBE, the leading lifestyle hospitality company that develops, manages and operates award-winning hospitality venues globally, is in advanced discussions to merge Hakkasan Group into the SBE family.”

Sam added, “SBE is in advanced discussions with Hakkasan Group regarding a potential merger. As currently contemplated, SBE would welcome Hakkasan’s global portfolio of prestigious restaurants and best-in-class nightlife assets into SBE’s international platform of lifestyle hospitality and entertainment assets to create the most dynamic hospitality, residential, restaurant and entertainment company in the industry.

“The merger is expected to close within 60 days.” Sam, who is known here for opening Hyde Bellagio and SLS Las Vegas with its W Hotel tower, is the founder and CEO of the privately held, leading lifestyle hospitality company that develops, manages and operates award-winning hotels, residences, restaurants and nightclubs.

A spokesman for SBE stated: “Through exclusive partnerships with cultural visionaries, SBE is devoted to creating extraordinary experiences throughout its proprietary brands with a commitment to authenticity, sophistication, mastery and innovation.

“Following the acquisition of Morgans Hotel Group, the pioneer of boutique lifestyle hotels, SBE has an unparalleled global portfolio featuring 23 world-class lifestyle hotel properties in nine attractive gateway markets and more than 136 global, world-renowned hotel, entertainment and food and beverage outlets.
