I intend to take a trip from San francisco area to Los Vegas in a few weekends from now. Would like suggestions as to which hotel has the safest and best place to park my Lambo for a few days. Would like to hear other peoples experiences.

As far as parking goes.. I always park Valet and park the car myself. I tip the valet parker money for letting me park myself and they always look out for the car.
Ive seen exotics in front of all the casinos and they seem to get preferential treatment.

Hi,
I live in Las Vegas. I have found that if you drive a nice enough car and tip well enough, just about any of the casinos will let you park it yourself up front.

A locals tip...some of the premier casinos (Caesars, venetian, Bellagio) also have valet parking for their shops. I usually park there. There is less traffic (less fingerprints on your car) and you can usually get in and out quicker.

unfortunatly, this only works until about 11 or 12 as the shops close down their valet when they close.

good luck.

Bellagio has always worked out great for me with valet attendants. Just state you want to park it yourself and a valet attendent will ride with you to a safe under roof main floor spot away from any potential harm or tampering. Car is always being observed by their security while in this secure spot. Remember to tip well. When you go to get your car, its close enough for you to go and get it yourself and most likely an attentendant will be there to guide you out just so they can hear and be next to it. Have a great time.

I hate to be totally dense but what sort of tip are we talking about for parking out front?

Say for a few hours? Overnight? I'm just looking for a guideline.

When I went to Four Seasons,they gave a spot of my own where no one could get in the underground parking.No one could get in and touch it.A security gaurd was watching the car so I could even leave the windows open if I wanted to.

Make it $10.00 or more all depending on how happy you are with the valet. These people admire the image that these cars give off and hope the owners are as cool as the cars themselves.

Sorry for the late response. Any of the major hotels will provide you with prime parking. Just remember, in Vegas they will part the Red Sea for some cash. Some will display your car in front, not good if you will be leaving your car for a while. I would say Bellagio is my favorite place to park my car. Like Roy said, just let them know you want to "valet" park the car yourself. A valet will ride with you and guide you to the sparking spot. It will be underground close to where you pick up your car for valet. Close enough to monitor, but far enough to gawk at.

As for tipping, I normally give $10 or more when I arrive and another $10 or more when I get back. So, if you go in and out of your hotel it could get expensive. At one point I calculated tipping more than $150 for one day of going in and out. Don't forget that you'll tip again when you park it whereever you are going to.

Just think of it as a cheap insurance against damage.

If you feel like a rock star when you're driving your car around your town, you'll feel like a superstar in Lost Wages.

I hope this helps.
