Parking Fees

My wife and I just got our status upgraded to Platinum. When we travel for leisure, will they ever cover parking charges for Platinum?? Sometimes parking fees are pretty high at certain locations.

    IVe heard people mention on this board and Flyertalk that as a result of their Platinum membership the hotel waived parking fees though it's never happened at any of the places I've stayed at. The nearest to that experience is the Birmingham, UK Marriott which halves its parking fee to Plats.

     

    SInce a lot of hotels don't own their parking lots, it's really unlikely those hotels will do anything and for those that do own their lots, many don't charge, however most downtown central hotels in gateway cities do. No doubt some see it as additional revenue.

     

    To return to your question. No, free parking is not an elite benefit, but a few (very few) hotels may offer it as such...
