Hello all.

Long time lurker here.

As you all probably know, parking for many Seattle hotels can be an expensive and hellish issue.

If you end up researching parking costs/alternatives for hotels you win, please post that info including whether you can come & go. I know I for one would find it extremely helpful.

Thanks!

Jim

I called the three properties I have rooms for this weekend.

Alexis - Valet parking with in and out privileges for $43 (includes tax). This is for a 24 hour period.

Westin - Valet $39+tax/Self $36+tax. Both have in and out privileges. You can park until 5pm day of checkout.

Sheraton - Valet $41+tax with in and out prvileges. You can park until 6pm day of checkout.

I avoid these charges by leaving my car at the Northgate Transit Center and taking the bus downtown. I forget what the number is but it goes through the bus tunnel and is convenient to most properties. Also, if arriving by air. The light rail goes all the way to the airport now. It's just a few dollars and also goes through the tunnel.

Stayed at the Hotel MAX, good value at 3 1/2 stars on PRICELINE, at Stewart and 7th. Valet parking $30. Parking lot 2 blocks north on west side of 7th for $17 for 24 hours, no attendant so you could leave and come back on the same ticket.

We don't do the Hotel parking, but opt for 24 hour access paid lots, like Standard pkg lot. The rates are cheaper and you can come and go as you like. Last year I think we did Standard at 7th and Pike - no problems. We pay for an entire week as we are there for a week, so there is a bit a savings there. Didn't see any suspicious activity, much nicer cars than ours parked in the lot. Took all valuables and shopping bags out. Seemed there was always an attendant. We had a hatchback and we parked it backwards, so that our hatch door was abutted against the wall - don't know why, but it felt safer. We came in very late a few times - no trouble. The valet thing is pricey, esp. adding in the tips. We were at the Sheraton and the garage was just a minute walk away. Here is one website that helps - there are other ones a bit easier to navigate too: http://seattle.bestparking.com/#1

Here's another website map that you can click on the flags and get rates. Honestly, I don't remember which lot we used but it was across the street east of the Cheescake Factory possibly Union Square garage? Anway, even though this link says Grand Hyatt parking, it shows most all downtown garages and you can click them for more info: http://en.parkopedia.com/parking/garage/7t.../98101/seattle/

I visited Seattle during the Memorial Day weekend. I plan on visiting again. This is very vital and useful information for anyone staying downtown.

I stayed at the Monaco. Valet parking was $40 a day plus tax. The convenience was great, but $40 x 4 adds up.

Word To The Wise - Check Your Bill. I had an early flight. No one was at the front desk. The valet suggested it was ok to leave my room key and take off. I insisted he find the front desk personnel. Good thing I did! The hotel said I had two cars and was charging me each time I parked, to the tune of around $300. Eventually after some time, the error was corrected. If I would have left, who knows how it would've ended.

I use the BetterBidding Hotwire and PRICELINE links to search & bid, always have and always will.

Wowzers, these parking rates make me really happy I'm not renting a car for our 10 day stay in Seattle. Really hoping the public transit is as nice and easy to navigate as I hope it is.

Yup, parking in downtown seattle is definitely pricey. You mentioned having to go somewhere on Sunday, however. It should be noted that, on Sundays and holidays, parking downtown is free. As well, there is often street parking that is free in the evening (after 8pm, maybe? Can't remember...) One of the things I do is actually stay out of downtown until the evening, and then park on the street. If the next day is a weekday/saturday, you'll have to move your car or pay for parking before 7am, which works for me, because I'm usually up by that hour. Or, if the next day is a Sunday, then you don't have to worry about it at all.

Hope this helps!
