"System did not take the scan from the ticket when I came in, but a nice valet told me when I exit to just push the help button & I gave the # on the ticket and it worked. Thanks"
"I booked my parking while I was still out in the suburbs and before I started driving because I wanted to make sure it was confirmed before I got on the road. It's not really possible to juggle a phone and hope you can find a spot when you are within a few blocks of your destination. Unfortunately, I miscalculated how long it would take me to get into the city and I was about 10 minutes early. Because of this, my pass would not activate the gate. And the attendant wouldn't let me in. So I had to sit there for 10 minutes until the exact minute that was on my pass. I think this stinks. I can understand if someone books for just a few hours and then overstays by an hour or more, but showing up 10 minutes early isn't going to make one shred of difference in the number of cars in the garage at that time. Otherwise, it was OK. Garage is super crowded so they had to park my car for me. I always feel like I need to tip the attendant in those situations, which is a little irksome because if I wanted to valet it, I would go to a comfy valet lot and pay a lot more and I would know going in that I need to budget for tip and everything. (This garage doesn't even have an elevator, by the way, just some rickety staircases.) The attendant is doing the parking because the lot is oversold, which is a choice the garage makes, not me. I tip anyway, because it's not the attendants' faults, but I'm not happy about it. The price is reasonable compared to regular rates but it's not as inexpensive as I used to be able to get ParkWhiz, and this particular garage is very definitely no-frills."
"The garage itself was a bit confusing. I parked on a weekend and it's obviously more suited for weekday use (attended). Also, on the way out certain stairwell doors didn't open (were locked) so I had to walk up an additional floor and then down via the ramp used by cars."
"it was great - easy in easy out thanks"
"Easy to find. Easy to park. Parkwhiz worked like a gem!"
