"It was easy to find, and it was a nice parking garage for a good price. There was a scan box just for parkwhiz customers which made it that much easier."
"We were going to the Merchandise Mart so the location is very convenient. I knew the entrance was on Franklin Ave but the street address is not marked on the building, it just shows "Public Parking" on the building. Inside is very narrow. Small to medium cars will have little problems"
"Easy access, nice garage and perfectly located for events at the Merchandise Mart."
"easy in and easy out, but we had problems finding the enter and exit on franklin street nothing on it was a little confusing but once we figured it out there were no problems.4 blocks away but it wasn't a bad walk,it"
"Parking location was very convenient to the Merchandise Mart; easy to find; clean; well-lit. However, the ramps are VERY narrow -- a lot of cars have scraped the wall, by the looks of it. Also, the scanner does not work well. It took several swipes to get in, and on the way out if took a very long time for the gate to finally open --- -there were already 3 cars waiting behind me."
"Great price! A nice big spot easily found. In and out using my phone app and their scanner that works."
