Hotel and parking

Post by JosephW » Mon Sep 10, 2018 3:44 pm

So this past AB, I didn't get a hotel, I just drove up from RI and parked at a garage ~3 blocks from the con. This year though, I was thinking of getting a hotel, just for Friday night into Saturday, and was wondering if parking is usually included for the hotel?

Mostly wondering because since I'd only have a Friday night reservation, I'd have to check out before noon on Saturday, and that likely includes leaving the parking garage, yeah? So in that case I'd be better off just buying parking at a separate garage again, since I'm going to be staying until Saturday night, but the hotel reservation will only be for Friday night.

Not speaking in any official terms, just from personal experience. If the hotel has it's own parking garage, you can expect to pay to park there. Usually somewhere around $25ish a night. If the hotel does not have it's own garage, they may have an arrangement with a nearby municipal garage where you can pay to park through the hotel. Always call first to see what the parking situation is like. However, what many commuters from out of state do is park at a T-Station outside of the city for closer to $5-$10 a day, and take the T or Lyft in.
