Parking at Hotels...

I'm just trying to figure out my budget. We are staying 3 nights at RPH. I'm pretty sure we'll be renting a car. I know they charge $20/day to park. (Ridiculous!) We'll be in the parking lot from Saturday around 5pm, until checkout on Tuesday. Are we going to be charged $60 (3 nights) or $80 (4 days)? I know it sounds stupid, but I just want to know how much they will charge. We may not even move the car during our stay.

They charge for each night you stay, not days.

Just curious, why do you want to rent a car? You certainly don't need one during a stay at a Universal resort, unless you want to do things away from the parks.

We used a town car service to and from the airport for about the same price as parking would have been, much less the cost of a rental.

Plus gas and the hassle of pickup and return.

We wouldn't be without a car as we like to get around a bit.......but if I was only staying for 3 nights it's not necessary.

As others have said you will pay parking per night not by day.

I don't blame you guys for having a car. Gotta go visit all those shops and eateries. I don't think Kyle can live without his cake. Lol

We are doing 3 nights at Universal, then 3 nights at Disney, so we need transport from from the airport to Universal, then US to Disney. My DH likes to have a car available. I agree that we probably won't use the car while we're at Universal, but we'll have that option. I'm hoping rental prices come down--right now they are high but considering the transfer costs, not too bad.
