Default How much to park in the front row in Vegas?

Going on a weekend trip to Las Vegas. Looking forward to exercising the car on 15. When I get there, I would like to tip the valet to park in the front row. Any suggestions on how much I should tip? I don't want to insult the valets and at the same time not overpay.

Why park at the "front row"?? So much traffic (foot traffic and car traffic). I avoid parking my car anywhere near there.

i just love having my car leaned and puked on.. LOL

the parking garages are more than likely half empty... park on your own floor away from everyone with security cameras and a shorter walk to the elevator ;-) unless again you like longer walks, scratches from the buttons on peoples pants, and the occasional ding and puke.

Go buy a bling car and some gold chains if you want to park on the front row

Self-park, like the others said.

With all the damage that can be done in about 1 minute by a "valet" you will be miles and money ahead to park it yourself. I even parked by car at Villa D'este on Lake Como and the valet never looked down his nose at me once. (He had plenty of Ferraris (Fiat) and Bentleys (VW) to drive into the subterranean garage!) I got to even pick my own spot!

Villa D'este is a beautiful hotel, it must have been fun to have your 911 in Italy's Northern lakes region.

At the nearby mall, I more often see huge black SUVs with ugly chrome tires unloading people who would benefit from additional walking utilizing the valet. My Porsche is self-parked far away from cars and people.

I can't remember where but there was a thread where a RL member had his car stolen from the parking garage of a LV casino.

This is the thread and maybe why he asked about front row. I would feel safe self parking as other have suggested.

A well-trained valet at a luxury spot should be fine in your car.
Some of those guys make a *lot* of money on tips.

I wouldn't pay extra for up-front -- but why not just ask the guy if he can park it up front?

Just dont go to the Red Rock casino. Thats where the GT3 was stolen last week or so.

Here is what you do. Drive your 911 to Vegas THEN BACK TO LA. Then get your Old BMW and drive
it back to Vegas and park wherever.
