As the 8th largest hotel in the world, and the second largest Hotel in Las Vegas, (with 4,400 rooms), there is a great demand for parking at the fun Luxor Hotel and Casino.
Luxor tries to accommodate its guests who drive with a large, spread-out, two story parking structure behind the Luxor’s main black pyramid-shaped hotel building.
On the second level of the Luxor parking garage, you’ll find the walkway that leads you to the hotel itself. It passes over Luxor Drive and over the resort’s beautiful pool area.
Luxor Parking Garage Fee
|1 – 4 Hours||$15|
|4 – 24 Hours||$18|
|Each Additional Day||$18|
Those guests staying at the hotel will pay too, and guests use their hotel room key to get in and out of the parking garage. When checking out of your room, be sure to keep your hotel room key as you’ll use it to exit the garage.
Please also note: MGM Resorts (owners of the Luxor) state that these prices can go up during special events. This would mainly apply when concerts and sporting events cause the nearby T-Mobile Arena parking area to fill up.
Luxor Las Vegas Self-Parking
When you enter the parking garage, you’ll receive a ticket. Take it with you. If you’re staying at the hotel, you’ll give it to the clerk at check-in, so that the parking fee will be applied to your bill.
If you’re not staying at the hotel, you’ll keep your ticket and insert it into a parking kiosk just prior to leaving. You’ll pay at the kiosk and receive another ticket you’ll use to scan at the exit gate.
Hotel guests have free in-and-out access, both at the Luxor and every other MGM Resorts property, but non-hotel guests will pay each time they leave.
The parking fee applies to hotel guests, casino customers and anyone else off of the street. There are however, some exceptions.
Free Parking at the Luxor Hotel & Casino
Those with the MGM Resorts Players Card, called MGM Rewards, can park for free at the Luxor, but only if you have reached one of the following tiers: Pearl, Gold, Platinum, or Noir. Players just starting out, or low rollers, typically are at the Sapphire level, and therefore will have to pay for parking.
Also, despite the Luxor, and other casinos charging hefty parking costs, there are still some places to park for free on the Las Vegas Strip, including across the street at the Tropicana Las Vegas Hotel Parking garage.

Another caveat is that parking is free for the first hour. (As if you are going to stay in a casino for the 40 or so minutes you have left after accounting for time to park and walk in and out of the casino). Nevertheless, those of you needing to run into the Luxor to say, place a sports bet, can self-park for free for the first hour.
Also, Nevada residents with I.D. get their first three hours of self-parking free.
Keep Your Ticket
VERY IMPORTANT! When using the Luxor’s self-parking garage, do not lose your parking ticket. If lost, you have to use the kiosk to connect with someone (I’m picturing a call center in India), who will try to determine how long your car has been there, and what the fee should be. They know your vehicle based on the videotaping of all license plates that enter the garage.
My point is that it will be a hassle if you lose your ticket. On top of that, MGM Resorts says that if they cannot determine how long you’ve been there, you will be charged a $30 “lost ticket parking fee.”
Luxor Hotel & Casino Las Vegas Valet Parking Fees
The Luxor’s valet parking area is directly in front of the main hotel entrance. It’s the area under the giant Sphinx, facing the Strip. You access it when going south on the Las Vegas Strip.
Valet parking is more expensive than the self-parking, and that’s before factoring in the tip.
|Parking Time||Monday – Thursday||Friday – Sunday|
|0 – 2 Hours||$18||$20|
|2- 4 Hours||$22||$24|
|4 – 24 Hours||$26||$30|
|Each Additional Day||$26||$30|
Valet parking is free for MGM Rewards members who are either the Gold, Platinum, or Noir levels. While self-parking is free for Pearl level players, they must pay for valet parking.
When you’re ready to retrieve your vehicle, you’ll insert the valet ticket you received into the kiosk. You’ll then scan your MGM Rewards card in order to receive the complimentary valet parking.
On top of the valet parking fees, of course, it’s expected that you leave a tip. Some claim that you only need to tip when picking up your car, but it’s a good practice (and just plain nice) to tip the valet when dropping off your vehicle.
Luxor Hotel Parking Directions
The Luxor parking garage is on the west side of the resort, behind it, bordering both Frank Sinatra Drive and Interstate 15.
Directions when going North on the Strip
When on the Strip, going north (towards the Excalibur), you’ll take the first left after Mandalay Bay, called Mandalay Bay Road. After passing under the walkway between Mandalay Bay and Luxor, you’ll take the first right, at Luxor Drive.
From there, take the first left. The Luxor parking garage will be on your right, and you can eight use the covered parking, or go a little further for the second story parking.
When Going South on the Strip
When going South on Las Vegas Boulevard, you’ll want to take the first right on the street just past the Luxor, on a street called W. Reno Avenue.
This road, W. Reno Avenue, will take you under the pedestrian bridge walkway that links the Luxor to the Excalibur. You’ll continue driving past the two large black box towers of the Luxor on your left.
Immediately after the towers, you’ll come across Luxor Drive. You can either take a right to access the Excalibur parking garage, or go left to get to the Luxor parking lot. It’s pretty clearly marked, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it.
Once you are on Luxor Drive, you’ll see the Luxor parking garage ahead, about 300 feet, on your right. After a stop sign, (continue past it), you can take a right for the covered parking, or continue on, going underneath another pedestrian bridge, and take another right, going a little further to access the top level of the parking garage. Since the walkway is on this second level, many people prefer to park close to the walkway.

Random Luxor Parking Lot Fact
In May 2007, a man was killed when a pipe bomb exploded on the second story of the Luxor’s parking structure. A 29 year-old illegal alien, Porfirio Duarte-Herrera, was convicted of manufacturing the device and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Duarte-Herrera had assisted his friend, (who was also sentenced to life for the murder) in killing the man, who had worked inside the Luxor and was dating the friend’s ex-girlfriend.
