A message from Corey Sanders, Chief Operating Officer
As you are aware, our Company is preparing to launch a fee-based parking program on the Las Vegas Strip in 2Q 2016. Earlier this week, we announced a decision to partner with an expert in parking operations.
We concluded after months of discussions and looking at all our options that the scope and complexity of launching a fee-based parking program is not in our core competency. We excel in guest service and having the best employees in the industry, while our new partner, SP+, excels in managing large-scale parking operations for some of the world’s most famous four and five-diamond hotel brands including Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hilton and Marriott, and managing parking for massive venues including past Olympics, World Cup and Super Bowl events.
With this decision, SP+ will manage our self-parking facilities at T-Mobile Arena and all of our Las Vegas properties (except Circus Circus self-parking) and they will manage valet parking operations at all properties (except The Signature, Mandalay Place and Crystals, where their current programs prevail). This also means that our valet staff and department leadership at our non-union properties will become employees of SP+. Discussions are taking place with our Teamsters Union partners regarding this transition of valet team members at our union properties. READ MORE
