Frankly, some of the Las Vegas hotels and casinos show nothing more than contempt for the customers foolish enough to park their cars themselves. These deserve to be called out. Not all of them can be the Wynn, an example of a parking garage done right, but there's no excuse for making this list. A lot of people would rank this one higher, but it's not all that bad if you come in from Frank Sinatra Drive in the back of the property.
Of course, from several directions it's not all that easy to get to Frank Sinatra, and it is a real PITA to park coming from the Strip, so it makes the list.
Once you're at the garage, though, getting in and out of the actual structure isn't too bad, although on the lower floors it can be a bit of a hike to get from the garage to the casino. Aria is part of the CityCenter project, the most expensive construction project in the history of the human race Perhaps the thought is that "CityCenter people don't self park.
In any case, the only access to the garage is via the Strip, which is packed to the gills with people who want to ooh and ahh at CityCenter. After you've made the trek from the garage to Aria, though, and you're debating whether it would have been better or worse to walk from your car to the Monte Carlo and taken the tram, you can still take some comfort in the fact that at least you're not staying at Vdara. After parking one's car but before setting out on foot for the registration desk in the lobby of the MGM Grand, the first thing one should do is decide on a bivouac point for the first night you'll spend on your trek.
Even though there are a couple of vending machines along the route, you should still seriously consider packing food and water. It takes less energy to walk the length of downtown Las Vegas than it does to get from the MGM Grand's parking garage to the casino, and woe unto anyone heading to Studio 54, the sports book, or the poker room.
The folks at the MGM should provide Sherpas and pack animals. The Venetian is undoubtedly one of the nicest casinos on the Strip. Its parking garage is, well, second worst.
