What are the parking rates at Luxor Las Vegas?
Self-Parking Fees at Luxor Las Vegas:
UPDATE: As of May 23, 2020 Both MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment have announced that all of their properties on and off the Strip will offer free self-parking for the "foreseeable future". Valet-parking has been suspended for now at most, if not all, casinos.
MGM and Caesars properties encompass the majority of the major casinos and hotels on the Strip. Casinos not owned by one of these two companies either already offered free parking or will be offering it now. Free parking has returned to the Las Vegas Strip! At least for the time being.

The Luxor Las Vegas
The Luxor Hotel & Casino is a large, black pyramid structure that sits on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip. You can’t miss it! It’s 30-stories high, sits on 120,000 square feet of property and has 4,407 guest rooms making it the 8th largest hotel in the world.
Oh, and there’s a giant Egyptian sphinx sitting in front of the hotel. See, I told you you wouldn’t miss it 🙂
Thousands of people visit the Luxor Hotel every year, so as you can imagine the demand for parking is high.
Let me tell you about the types of parking spots and services available at Luxor Las Vegas, the parking rates, and give you an easy way to find the parking area. Most people like to park in the self-park area so let’s start there.
Self-Parking Cost at the Luxor Las Vegas
First, if you’re staying for under an hour, self-parking at the Luxor is free. This, of course, isn’t very practical as not many people are going to spend less than an hour here.
Again, this is the cost for self-parking at the Luxor:
- 1st Hour – Free
- 1 – 4 Hours – $8
- 4 – 24 Hours – $10
- More than 24 hours – $10 each day or part thereafter
Almost everyone visiting the hotel or casino has to pay parking fees. I say “almost” because there are exceptions which I’ll explain soon enough.
The Self-Parking Parking Garage at Luxor
Luxor’s parking facility is a two-storied structure that connects to the main hotel building. The parking garage can be found behind the casino at 3900 Las Vegas Blvd South. This address will take you to the Luxor itself, then you can look for and follow the “Self-Parking” signs.
Better yet, here are the precise directions to the Luxor parking garage itself on google maps. (If you click the link on your phone it will take you to the exact garage location on google maps and you can hit the “directions” button and it’ll take you right there).
The Luxor parking garage no longer has any parking attendants. As you enter the parking garage you’ll need to take a ticket from the kiosk. Hold onto this ticket because you don’t want to pay the fee for losing it and you’ll need it to get out again.
Important Tip: Don’t leave the ticket on your dashboard. It’s not required that you display it and leaving your ticket behind allows anyone who “takes” (eh-em, yes I mean “steals”) your car to easily leave the parking garage for the price of the parking fee. Not cool!
(FYI, this is not generally a problem as the parking garage is quite safe overall but it does happen on occasion and it’s better to be safe than sorry).
On the second level of the parking garage, you’ll find a walkway that extends over the pool and leads into the hotel itself.
Tips for Self-Parking at Luxor
Here are some vital points to keep in mind if you plan on self-parking when you visit the hotel or casino.
- If you’re staying at the hotel, always keep your hotel room key on you, as you need it to access the parking garage.
- As a hotel guest, you have access to all self-parking facilities for the 24-hour parking fee (so $10 a day added to your bill) until the day of check out. This includes in and out privileges, so you can come and go as much as you’d like.
- Parking rates may increase as a result of special events within and near the Luxor.
- Do your best not to lose your ticket. Luxor’s parking authorities may put you through a lengthy videotape search to check how long your car was parked.
- If they can’t figure out how long your car was parked in the garage, you’ll have to pay a lost ticket fee of $30.
How to Get Free Parking at the Luxor
The Luxor issues cards to its regulars and hotel guests called “M Life” cards. The cards are free at any MGM property, just visit the “Players Club” desk inside the hotel. It just takes a few minutes to get one.
These cards serve as MGM Resorts Players’ Cards and come in various tiers, depending on how often you use the casino. The following tiers are entitled to free parking:
First-timers, newbies, and low-rolling customers are mostly on the entry-level Sapphire tier. They don’t get free parking, or at least not after spending over an hour in the hotel.
So if you gamble a lot you may be high enough on the tiers to be entitled to free parking.
Having said that, if you’re like me and not much of a gambler there is another way to get free parking at all the MGM properties up and down the Strip. It’s easy and we show you how to do it in our article and video here.
How to Pay for Parking at Luxor
When you’re ready to leave the property, Luxor makes paying your parking tab pretty simple. As you return to the parking garage from the hotel/casino be on the lookout for the parking kiosk machines.
You simply insert your parking ticket into the machine and pay by credit card. On the way out of the parking garage, you will need to insert your ticket into a machine at the gate. Once it verifies that you’ve paid, the gate will open and you’re on your way!
Paying for parking stinks but at least they’ve made it fast. No waiting in a line of cars to get out of the parking structure while the guy in front of you tries to dig enough change out of his ashtray to pay.
Valet Parking at Luxor Las Vegas (Fees & More)
As expected, the valet parking is more expensive than self-parking, even without the cost of tipping the valet driver. You should always tip when dropping off and picking up your car. It’s just good karma!
(Check out our Las Vegas Tipping Guide here to find out how, when and how much to tip when you’re visiting Las Vegas).
Gold, platinum, and noir members of the M Life rewards loyalty program get free valet parking. Pearl members and lower don’t get to enjoy complimentary valet parking.
Valet Parking Rates at Luxor
- 0 – 2 hours – $16
- 2 – 4 hours – $18
- 4 – 24 hours – $24
- Every 24 hours thereafter – $24
Location of the Valet Parking Area at Luxor
Entering the Luxor off the Las Vegas Strip, you should see the valet parking area right in front of the hotel. It’s right by the large Sphinx I mentioned before, so you can’t miss it. This google maps link should get you there.
Facts to Remember About Valet Parking at Luxor
- As a hotel guest, you have access to all valet parking facilities until the day of check out.
- Don’t forget to tip your valet. The average tip for a valet is about $5, though you can tip whatever you like.
- If you’re not staying at the hotel you can pay your valet parking fees by presenting your credit card at the kiosk. If you are a guest of the hotel, the fee will be added to your bill upon checkout.
