I had thought that the Cosmopolitian, the Venetian/Palazzo, and the Wynn were the last hold outs. Does anyone know if the Wynn and Venetian/Palazzo have going to charging for parking also? I was a bit amazed at paying $45 before being charged for the room ($35 resort fee + $10 parking). Things are getting a little out of hand. Just glad I got Saturday comped (Sunday was casino rate + the $45). On the comped night, I still had to pay $10 for the parking. Admittedly, having a couple of nights at the Cosmopolitan for a couple hundred dollars is still a good deal in my book. Just putting the info out there for anyone interested.

It's only a matter of time before you're so nickel and dimed, that by the time you reach the tables or machines you'll be broke!

Here's the places on the strip or 'close' to the strip that still offer free parking.

Wynn
Encore
Rio
Treasure Island
Pallazo
Venetian
Palace Station
Palms
Planet Hollywood
SLS
Stratosphere
Tropicana

Places like Caesars and I forget who else let you park free as well, but you have to be a 'local' and show proof of residency such as a license. Many other places offer free parking as well but you have to be there less than an hour. The above list is purely FREE though no matter if local or hours spent in the casino.
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

This must be what they call psychological warfare. I've never understood it before, but they're trying to get into heads. This parking thing is a joke at a casino. I never believe politicians that say there are too many regulations because of things like this and resort fees. There are not enough.

What makes it a joke? It's their business. If you don't like it, don't go there. If enough people don't go there, they will change it back. When it comes to business customers vote with their wallet. Many a business has made a fatal mistake and paid dearly for it.

I don't think something like paid parking should be regulated by the government, especially (if forced to offer free parking) the casino is liable to people parking at their location and walking to another casino. It's not so bad in LV, but imagine a location where parking is extremely limited. Should places in NYC be regulated and not be allowed to have paid parking?

Ah, but this isn't a Subway restaurant, it's a regulated casino held to higher standards. The casino really doesn't have a need to charge, they're trying to screw with people's emotions I think and divert money that should be taxed. They're not allowed to charge people to enter the property, shouldn't be allowed to charge for parking. It wasn't part of the deal when the casino was granted a license, having the license ensures limited competion for business which is supposed to be shared with the state through taxes. Parking fees and resort fees skirt the taxes. I also dont like it intimidates people into playing and playing carded to get these fees waived, plus they're defacto charging for using free play redemption which must not require play. Just build the cost of parking into the spending that already occurs(as it really is already).

I look at it as a private bureaucracy, get off my back. It's like Dr. Evil runs these places and I don't like companies having that much power over people. We're supposed to have inalienable rights, the majority of people don't like these things, government should respond if the democratic process was working right. Having people park in the casino lot is supposed to be a good thing, not a bad thing they need to recoup, they're there to spend money, if they don't, eat the cost. Governmental agencies have negotiating power over the casinos and it should be used to control them, not forfeited so we're controlled. As we see this, we see the people are the enemy of both, I dont like that.

It's the same thing with automatic exclusions when people are on self-exclusion lists, the casinos don't do it to protect the people, they do it to intimidate people from getting on lists too close to home, by taking away casinos far away they can control because of the traveling hassle.

Now you know why I'm paranoid of the whole casino industry. Government is not on our side. They're on the casinos side. Makes you question everything if its like that of who they're actually protecting. The state gets billions in tax revenue from these casinos. That's why they would never lose their license for cheating. Just a slap on the wrist fine.
