Las Vegas casinos are betting on Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals in hopes of reversing a downward trend in visitation to the Entertainment Capital of the World. One of the best deals from SLS Las Vegas the north strip property that recently unveiled a $100 million renovation.
Increased Resort fees have been blamed by some tourism officials for a decline in visitation. The vast removal of free parking, an amenity that had been afforded to guests of for decades, has also been panned.
Caesars Entertainment’s Cyber sale, which runs through december 10, is a deal that slashes room rates by 25% and offers 500 bonus points for its reward members.
MGM Resorts Black Friday runs through December 3. Nevada’s largest casino operator is luring guests with food and beverage credit. At the Bellagio, for instance, a three night stay comes with a $180 credit.
The Las Vegas Convention and visitors Authority reports that visitors volume is down 1.3% through September. Casino executives maintain that rising Resort fees and the implementation of parking charges have not kept the visitors away.
