  • Went down to the auto show. Easy in, easy out. Used this also last year for the auto show. I would recommend.

  • conveinient location to cobo. It was nice to drive straight to a parking lot without having to search for a spot.

  • So convenient to Joe Louis and very secure parking. Got out quickly after the game. Great staff.

  • Parked for the Zac Brown Band concert on New Year's Eve. The directions were great and there was no problem at the gate - I gave the parking pass and they knew exactly what it was. However, typing the address from the pass into Google maps will take you downtown and not the lot (type 229 Yzerman Drive and it will work better). There is poor signage to the lot (not Parking Whiz' fault) because I'm guessing Joe Louis Arena figures people who typically park there (VIP) know where it is. Getting out of the lot took almost an hour because there were no lot attendants or police moving traffic - it might be different for actual hockey games. All in all, I would use this again because it was reassuring to know I had a guaranteed spot right next to the arena.

  • It was awesome. Easy in, very short walk, not too long to get out. Great experience.

  • I liked having reserved parking directly across the street from the venue, especially when the event was over after 10:30pm and walking with a child. The price charged at the gate was $20.00 as opposed to the $25.88 fee paid for the advanced reservation. Oh, well we didn't have to walk far nor did we have to endure the traffic congestion around the venue. My only suggestion would be to have an attendant direct traffic exiting the lot as there was a lot of honking horns. Over all, no major complaints...

This spacious, well paved, surface lot is great for events at the Joe Louis Arena or the Cobo Center.
