Waterfront parking

Posted on Fri, May 11, 2012 at 10:48 AM

I parked at a hotel downtown where I have been parking for years, a few times a month. Whenever I want to stay at work late, I take my car instead of the bus and park at the hotel. Anyway, I parked there on Monday and am used to the “in by 9am out by 6pm" for $12. Basically the same deal for several years. When I went to pay the ticket they charged me $25 instead of the usual $12. I called the hotel and they told me that this was the new rate to be competitive with other locations in the area given the few parking spots in the downtown (i.e. we can gouge you because there are only so many spots and a lot of demand). I could have parked next door for $11.50/day a little further down the street, but parked at the hotel for what I thought was 50 cents more if they had put a sign the size of their old "early bird rate" out front before you enter. I never would have parked there otherwise. Thanks for the large fair warning. —Meg
