Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Resorts are joining MGM Resorts in charging hotel guests and visitors to park their vehicles.

Wynn becomes the third company with properties on the Strip to charge customers to park.

The company said parking will remain complimentary for local residents who show their identification and for all guests at the off-strip Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, which a larger parking area. It hasn't detailed precisely what the fees will be yet, but like MGM, both self-parking and valet service will carry a charge. Caesars Entertainment Corp. announced the end of free parking at eight of their nine Strip properties Tuesday, following a similar move by MGM Resorts International earlier this year.

It appears that paid parking will soon be the new norm in Las Vegas. And the Venetian and the Palazzo have no plans to charge guests for parking.

Rich Broome, executive vice president of communications and public relations for Caesars Entertainment, said the company has been planning details of its parking initiative for almost two years and made a decision to announce its implementation Tuesday after telling its valet parking attendants about it. "Self-parking remains free of charge at this time", the company said.

Self-parking will remain free until the company installs the necessary ticket machines, gates and payment kiosks. Parking will be free for higher-tier members of Caesars' players club, Total Rewards.

Broome said revenue generated by parking fees would be invested in LED parking guidance systems technology at various garages within the Caesars system. Prices climb to $13 to $18 for stays up to 24 hours. Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Bally's, and the Flamingo will implement the new policy in 2017.
