"Easy to find. No problems with getting the parking tickets."
"The valet situation was a little unclear in the morning (there was an empty car in front of me on the ramp going up to the second level; eventually a valet came and instructed me to leave my car there and he would park it, much to the dismay of the person behind me). Otherwise, the experience was easy and positive overall."
"tl;dr - Don't arrive until *after* the start time for your pass. Attendants were minimally helpful, and occasionally rude. Dark, dirty staircase with wobbly stairs. Convenient location, at least. This was my first time using ParkWhiz, so perhaps I made some rookie mistake, but I arrived a couple of minutes early, and my pass wouldn't scan. The machine considered it invalid. The attendant-- who at first passed by shouting they were full while barely glancing my way-- finally came to help after another driver got out and went after him. He scanned the pass a couple times, saw the error message, then got frustrated himself and just pushed the button to give me three tickets and told me to park in the basement, pretty rudely, I might add. He gave me absolutely no instructions, they seem to expect everyone to know the garage even if it's their first time. No sympathy if you have a problem or don't know where in the garage they're talking about. When I returned later, I went to exit and of course the machine was asking for $36, because the tickets weren't connected with my ParkWhiz pass. Finally another attendant came over and after I told him the situation, pushed the "assistance" button on the machine, and gestured for me to talk to them. Again, little instruction on what I'm supposed to be doing. Apparently you get connected with an outside line, give them your pass #, and they let you out. The stairs that led from the basement parking to the ground floor were dark, dirty, and a little wobbly. The major thing going for this garage is that it's a very convenient location, and $15 is a great deal. I might use it again for that reason, but the customer service definitely leaves a lot to be desired."
"Great location and worked out well for the theater."
"Its was good."
"Found the parking to be a quick drop off. The staff was very helpful."
