Las Vegas Strip violence causes security, room rate increase



By Bailey Schulz Las Vegas Review-Journal

Several fights over the weekend along Las Vegas’ tourist corridor have caused at least one casino operator to increase both security measures and room rates in an effort to quell the violence.

Capt. Patricia Spencer, head of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s downtown area command, addressed the media Tuesday afternoon to discuss the multiple events along the city’s tourist corridor over Labor Day weekend.

On Friday alone, downtown area command arrested 28 people and issued 27 citations. Spencer declined to offer details on where the incidents took place and did not offer figures for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Initial visitors to Sin City following coronavirus shutdowns may feel like they hit a jackpot before they even board a plane.

Some Las Vegas casino resorts reopened last week after Nevada lifted coronavirus restrictions that had been in place since late March. Travelers looking to book a room were greeted by an array of deals at normally expensive Las Vegas Strip resorts.

The five-star Bellagio had mid-week rooms for $125 per night later in the summer. Wynn Las Vegas offered a $150 per night weekend package at the end of June that included a $100 dining credit. The Cosmopolitan is waiving all self-parking fees, and other resorts like the Sahara Las Vegas said they would waive resort fees, sometimes known as “the most-hated fee in travel.

It wasn’t too long ago when travel analysts said offering steep discounts right out of a downturn would bake in further financial duress for struggling operators. But analysts argue Las Vegas is a different kind of travel animal and has enough revenue streams to make it pencil out.

Fly Now, Pay Later. Easy monthly payments over 3, 6, or 12 months.

Ed Komenda, Reno Gazette JournalUSA TODAYMay 18, 2020, 5:07 PM CDT

LAS VEGAS – As resorts prepare to reopen in the era of the coronavirus pandemic, tourism authorities here are pitching a “new Vegas for the new reality.”

On Monday, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and R&R Partners – the advertising company behind the famous “What happens here” campaign – launched a new 30-second television spot, reports the Reno Gazette Journal, which is part of the USA TODAY Network. 

“The world has changed,” a narrator says, “and Vegas is changing with it.” 

The ad is a response to the post-pandemic Las Vegas landscape – one that shut down in March to stem the spread of COVID-19, leaving thousands out of work and resorts scrambling to develop reopening plans
