Harrah’s, Harveys to charge for holiday, special event parking

Staff Reports

Stateline visitors will have to pay for parking at Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe during holidays and special events starting June 30.

Parking rates will run $20 for self-parking and $25 for valet parking with both cash and credit cards accepted for payment.

The hotels announced the new parking policy for both valet and self-parking on Friday.

This new policy will run through the summer on days and nights during major special events and peak holiday periods.

“As one of the few free parking areas that remained during special events and holidays, people from throughout the area park in the casinos’ lots, displacing many hotel and gaming guests,” hotel operators said. “Total Rewards loyalty members rated Platinum and above will continue to self-park for free. Complimentary valet will also be available for all Total Rewards loyalty members rated Platinum and above.”

Effective dates include any time when a concert or special event is scheduled, including: concerts/events at Harveys Outdoor Arena; American Century celebrity golf tournament, July 11 – 16; and major holiday periods including July 1 – 4 and Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 1 – 4. A complete schedule and dates for the 2017 Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series at Harveys Outdoor Arena can be found at caesars.com/harveys-tahoe/shows.

“Guests who stay, game and recreate at our two Tahoe resorts have said that parking spaces and valet services have become increasingly scarce, especially during the summer, so we believe that implementing a paid parking program will help address these issues,” said John Koster, Regional President for Caesars Entertainment in Northern Nevada. “During the summer, tens-of-thousands of people visit the South Lake Tahoe area to escape the heat, especially when outdoor concerts and special events are happening, and our priority is to ensure that our hotel guests and Total Rewards loyalty members have priority when it comes to finding a place to park.”

The new program follows suit with many other South Shore properties including hotels and casinos that have already implemented paid parking programs.
