Now that the city is back up and running, at least to some degree, and even with COVID-19 precautions being pervasively practiced, Las Vegas hotel properties seem to be slashing prices for the summer. From budget operators to luxury casino-resorts, the Las Vegas hospitality scene as a whole is doing what it can to entice tourists #BacktoVegas.
With relatively few patrons yet arriving by plane, the city has refocused its efforts on the drive-in market, namely California residents who have long looked to Vegas as a weekend or last-minute getaway. Although, Frontier Airlines is offering round-trip fares as low as $29 from Los Angeles International to McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, for those willing to sit through a brief flight.
“Visitors from Southern California are among our most loyal customers,” said Fletch Brunelle, vice president of marketing, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), told the Los Angeles Times. “We know that people are ready for a quick escape, and Vegas is waiting.”
Many reopened properties on the Strip have reintroduced free self-parking, including all MGM Resorts properties, Caesars Entertainment casinos, the Strat Hotel & Casino and various independent properties, such as the Cosmopolitan.
Below is a sampling of some present weekday pricing available at of the city’s premier four- and five-star properties (subject to certain restrictions, taxes, terms and conditions). Customers should take care to read the fine print since each of these properties tacks on a resort fee of around $45 daily and the nightly fees posted are still subject to taxes. Even so, there are some excellent bargains on offer and many are good for travel through the end of 2020, if not later, so you can buy now, stay later.
