I might be a bit out of touch with reality since I do not travel much, but hear me out. I booked a room at a Hyatt Regency via Priceline for a quick trip next weekend. Since it was priceline, I was only able to select the grade of the hotel (4* in this case), not the hotel itself. Only after doing further research on my purchase did I learn that the Hyatt Regency I was "assigned" to charges $16/day for self-parking. Granted, this is the first time I have stayed at a hotel that is nicer than a "casino resort" so perhaps I am simply unaware that a guest is expected to pay this much for parking. In addition, this hotel is in South Orange County, CA, so it isn't in the downtown area of a large city. Is it common for hotels to charge for parking nowadays, or is that something that comes with the upscale experience? Is anyone aware of any possible ways for me to get the fee waived or discount? Thanks.
