The Latest: Wynn joins Vegas resorts ending free valet

The Latest on Las Vegas hotel-casinos ending free parking and valet (all times local):

Wynn Resorts says it's joining a growing number of Las Vegas hotel-casinos by ending free parking valet service.

But the company says it will continue allowing drivers to park their own cars free of charge.

Company spokesman Michael Weaver said in a statement Wednesday that starting in mid-December, valet services at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore will cost at least $13.

The company says guests who park their own cars can continue to use complimentary garages at the resorts.

The change comes after Caesars Entertainment Corp. and MGM Resorts International announced they will phase out their free parking and valet services.

Eight of Caesars Entertainment Corp.'s nine Las Vegas hotel-casinos will start phasing out free parking starting next month.

Caesars Entertainment Corp. announced Tuesday it will start charging for valet services at the Linq and Harrah's next month and charge for self-parking later when new parking equipment is installed.

Caesars, The Cromwell, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Bally's and the Flamingo will start charging for parking starting in 2017.

The company says guests have reported that parking has become scarce. It hopes paid parking will help cut down on the problem.

Parking will remain free at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino where the parking area is larger and the company says there aren't similar problems.

The move follows a similar paid parking policy rolled out by MGM Resorts International earlier this year.
