Default Does this annoy you?

I am speaking mostly of Florida hotels, But I get crazed when the hotel I am staying at. charges you to park there...I remember not many years ago, when there was no charge...I just feel that parking should be part of my room rate....What do you think?

I agree -- ticks me off ... especially in areas of LA that are not that congested.

Me too! In some Miami hotels it is up to $20.00 per night! Outrageous!

Before I started cruising I stayed at the HoJo in Hollywood Beach Florida for a week (1994 or 95). They needed an armed 24 hour guard in the lobby, but had what I call unmitigated gall to charge me to park my rental car on the premises (at my own risk). If they needed a guard in the lobby, then I figure I should get a rebate off my room for having to risk my vehicle.

Try Boston or New York - up to $35 a night for parking!! Wish sites like priceline and hotwire included parking fees in their descriptions. It can make a big difference.

I hate the fees you have to pay also. But here is how it works in Pittsburgh. The parking facilities are all operated by an outside source...not the hotel itself. Therefore, the hotel has no control over the rates. I'll tell you when it ticks me off more than anything.....we have our annual work Christmas party at hotels fairly often. I hate that we have to pay for parking in order to attend the event. And it can be as high as $14 for the few hours you are there. I know that isn't all that much when you consider Baltimore was $25/day when we were there (valet rate).

One of the main reasons I try to take the train whenever I go downtown. Chicago has a great public transportation system. I refuse to pay the parking rates, what I consider high, and don't like to risk my car in street parking.

I think it's a rip that hotels charge for parking when you are staying there. I was looking for hotels in New Orleans when I was considering the American Queen for April and found alot of them charge for parking.

I can fit 6 cars in my driveway and I'll charge half the price....Warning though... it's about a 25 mile hike back to a Ft. Lauderdale hotel and Port Everglades from Boca Raton..<JK>

I have never heard of parking fees in hotels. Last time I was with a rental car in FL was 94 and it was free at the hotel lot for the week.
