San Francisco parking rates

There are some hotels in Downtown San Francisco that restrict occupancy to 2 people per room and have only one double bed.

Will be driving to San Francisco via 80 east for an 4 night stay(7/1-7/4). Thought we'd park @ the Ashby BART station and ride the train into the city. Using public transportation for our stay. Called BART customer service to ask about cost.Was told Sat.& Sun were free,Mon. free 24hrs. Tues.free as holiday. 4 days free parking. I hope this is a good idea to leave the car for 4 days unattended.

Thank you, "deckclass" for your Royal Valet parking info. Called them (415-440-1279). Rates have now increased to $20/day on wkeds and holidays, w/in-and-out privileges, but still a STEAL. Perhaps increase is only for busy summer toursit months and will revert to $15/day as mentioned in your e-mail in slower tourist months??? (Strangley, on Sun-Thurs., rates is less @ $18/day.) Note: Garage is CASH only and/or Travelers Cheques.

Also "day" starts @ 3 pm; therefore, if I first enter garage @ 5 pm on Friday, then must be out before 2:59 pm on Saturday to pay only one day's rate. These hours are predicated that hotel check out is 12 noon, and then the garage gives the customer a bit of time to do a few last minute errands--lunch, shopping, etc. All-in-all a terrific deal. As a former SFO resident/and constant visitor, nothing beats this in the Union Square area. Thanks again, "deckclass!"

Marriott said: "parking is $49.02 United States Dollars per day with in and out privileges."

Any information on alternatives, with/without in/out priviledges, near this hotel would be appreciated.

Incidentially Royal Valet was a good parking choice for us when we last visited SF and stayed around Union Square but is not close to the Marriott, across Market and near the Convention Center and Yerba Buena Gardens.

Valleyma, you may wish to try the Fifth & Mission/Yerba Buena Garage. Not a bargain, but about 50% less ($23/day??) than the Marriott, and is very close to the Marriott. Here are its particulars, including the phone number and website to determine if it works for you:

DownTown Parking Corporation
Fifth & Mission / Yerba Buena Garage
San Francisco, California

Address:
833 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

(415) 982-8522

Fifth & Mission was a fine place to park while staying at the Marriott San Francisco on 4th Street, or wherever one might stay within a short walking distance of one's hotel, given the cost of hotel/valet parking.

Fisherman's Wharf Parking

Does anyone know of reasonable overnight, preferably with In/Out privileges, and day parking in the Fisherman's Wharf area? We are planning a family Saturday/Sunday, 11/11-11/12, visit there.

Thanks.

Great new website for parking in San Francisco: www.parkingquest.com. Presently, it lists 896 different locations, by neighborhood, where one may find parking. It regularly adds locations, plus it has a feature that will calculate your rate for a specific time and date at any of its listed locations, as parking fees vary in San Fran, ie, weekday v. weekend v. holiday.

San Francisco has a great public transportation system. If you'd like to try public transportation, but are afraid of being overwhelmed or getting lost, then this may be your answer. The website: www.511.org will let you input any address and time in the greater San Francisco area, and it will tell you where and when the closest mode of transportation departs from that address, along w/its cost, as well as your return informaiton. If nothing is available for your dates and times (maybe 'cuz holiday or whatever) it will also tell you that too. You can check out all-day passes, transfers, etc. to keep your costs down, plus, you won't have the expense and hassle of parking.

Best option for Embarcadero Center area with in/out privileges? I need the car on Sunday and Monday morning.

If you can find street parking, it is free all day Sunday until Monday morning @ 7 am. (Not very easy, but I've done, as long as I've been willing to walk a block or three.) If you weren't ready to leave by 7 am, you could always move your car at 7 am and park it in a nearby garage for a few hours. Try not use hotel garages, as they are usually nearly double that of a regular garage. The Embarcadero Center garage itself (a block from Hyatt/Embarcadero) is fairly reasonable @ around $25/day. They may even validate w/purchase. You may also wish to check out parking info for Embarcadero/Fisherman's Wharf on previous SFO Parking BFT travel pages as well. Hope this helps.

I really like this hotel however with taxes, it's around $50/night to park.

Walk ONE block south of the hotel and you can save $25/night by using the EXACT same parking garage the hotel uses.

24 hour attendants, in & out privledges, and the hotel rate is around $25/night. You must pay up front at the time you check in your vehicle.

Anyone can use this garage, not just Hotel Monaco guests.
