The Wynn Las Vegas Hotel and Casino’s self-parking garage is one of the prettiest in town. Would you expect any less of Steve Wynn?
I realize that a place where thousands of people park their cars won’t ever be an architectural marvel, however with a soft tan exterior that is mostly covered by trees, the Wynn parking garage is a step above the typical dirty concrete monstrosities found at many of the mega-resorts on the Strip. In fact, the Wynn self-parking lot area is one of the few parking structures that doesn’t take away from the beauty of the resort.
Maybe best of all, unlike some other resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, parking at the Wynn is completely free. This applies to hotel guests, as well as people just wanting to eat at the hotel, gamble, shop, and those just wanting to look around.
Please note, this article covers the Wynn Las Vegas only. While guests can access the Encore Hotel and Casino from the Wynn’s garage, the Encore has its own, separate parking area. Guests staying at there should use the Encore’s self-parking garage, as using the Wynn’s would result in a very long walk.
As for the Wynn, the parking garage has four stories. And unlike some of the older structures, like the Flamingo’s self parking garage the driveways are wider for today’s larger-sized cars and S.U.Vs. Another nice feature of the Wynn’s self-parking garage are the electronic signs that display the number of available parking spaces on each level.
Clearance for the structure is eight foot and 2 inches. Vans or vehicles higher than this can use the garage’s roof level parking. There is a separate lane for roof-top parking.
There are two main pedestrian exits from the Wynn’s self-parking garage. One will take you closer to the Encore and the Esplanade shopping area, however mostly you will be led to the Wynn casino entrance, where’ll you’ll walk past a Hertz rental car area, the Ferrarri dealer, and the Wynn poker room.
Wynn Self-Parking Garage Directions
When going north on the Las Vegas Strip, (towards the Stratosphere), you’ll come across the large moving “Wynn” sign. Stay in your right lane. You’ll see an elaborate entrance to the resort past the sign on a street called, “Wynn Main Gate Drive.” This, however, is for valet parking and hotel registration, so go past this entrance, up the Strip a little bit more.
The next stop sign will show a street (not on any maps) simply called “Wynn Las Vegas.” Take a right here, where the parking garage and signage will be clearly marked on your right.
When going south on the Strip, you’ll pass the Encore, where you’ll take the first left at the first stoplight after the Encore, on a street called “Wynn Las Vegas.” Signage will clearly show you to the self-parking area.
However if you want to register for your room before hauling bags, or if you want valet parking, skip past this stoplight to the very next stoplight. It’s just before you arrive at the Fashion Show Mall on your right. In fact, the street sign will read, “Fashion Show Mall Drive.” You’ll take a left here, driving under the arches, into the Wynn valet area.
Wynn Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Valet Parking
There are two valet parking areas at the Wynn Las Vegas, the Main Entrance, and the South Gate Entrance.
*** Main Valet Entrance
You reach this entrance from the Strip, turning into Wynn Main Gate Drive, then following the signage to the valet area. When going north on the Strip, it’s the first right past the giant “Wynn” sign. When going south on the Strip, you’ll want to take a left on “Fashion Show Drive.”
*** South Gate Entrance
First off, this valet is only for guests staying in the Tower Suites at the Wynn Las Vegas. Typically, there will be someone checking to make sure your reservations are for the tower suites, rather than just in the main hotel, however some have reported not being checked. That seems to be the exception, rather than the rule. To be safe, you’ll probably just want to use the regular main gate entrance on the Strip.
If you are staying in the Tower Suites and wish to use this valet, you’ll access it off of Sands Avenue. When going on Sands Avenue towards the Strip, you’ll take a right into “Wynn South Gate.” (This street is also called “Holmes Street” on Google Maps for some reason).
When driving from the Strip on Sands Avenue, you’ll take a left on this same street, however the sign will read “Palazzo.”
Valet parking at the Wynn is free; you’re just expected to give a tip to the valet driver when both dropping off, and picking up a vehicle. (Photos courtesy of Jeff Wilcox and xiquinhosilva via Flickr.)
