my office (currently pretty much empty) is a few blocks from the SF Giants park, and the commercial lot across the street could get downright rapacious in their fees, especially if the team was doing well... they would put a sign out for $75/day and if it started filling up quickly with rich tech bro's, they would jack it up to $100 or even $125
For comparison, a non-game day would be like $20/day

In chicago, the hotel wanted to charge an outrageous parking rate. But the kind employee on the phone suggested an app on which I booked parking across the street at 30% of the hotel rate. Abolish parking lots and turn the golf courses into public parks!

Great book that vaguely relates to the thread: (Donald Shoup is sorta the Jane Jacobs of parking)

Hotel parking rates are the worst, just after the “resort fee”.
