Staying at a the Westin for the convention. Just need somewhere to park my car until I leave. Is it better to try to reserve a garage downtown or would it be better to go with the gate 10 parking?

Just park at the Westin. 
A little expensive but your vehicle is right there at the hotel.

I'm hearing that some of the hotels, while they have parking, their parking is actually managed through a 3rd party. So if you haven't booked parking by now, we may be SOL. Can anyone confirm/deny?

If you have a room at the hotel, you can park there. It is only if you are not a hotel guest that parking gets odd

If your staying at the Westin, I am as well, don't use their parking unless you have to its 40 bucks a day. When I stay I park at the Mall parking lot connected to the convention center. You can literally walk off the 3rd floor of that parking garage into the convention center and down the hallway in front of the Sagamore ballroom and into the Westin. Its only 22 bucks a day and very nearly as close as the Westins official parking lot.

I parked for the week at a garage, kitty corner and across Pennsylvania from Scottie's.(a few doors down)  $14 a day as I recall. They had no problem with long term stays. Some downtown garages don't have a problem with that. Beats paying Homewood's $30ish a day. Or Westin's $40, yikes!

Saw that you could reserve a space on some sites, but the ones closest to the hotel had were not taking any more reservations. Will look into some of these other options. Going to get there on Wednesday, so hopefully something will be open.

So question for clarity: Wasn't there parking available, first come first serve, at the actual Stadium lot just north/across the street from the Gate 10 lot. Buddy of mine swears by it and never had a problem with getting it. Same price as Gate 10, less walk, just arrive a little earlier to assure a spot.
Anyone have experience to share there?

If it’s the same price, why risk it?  You show up, it’s full, then what? You scramble to find parking and now have to take whatever you can get, possibly at a much higher price.

I’ll stick with a shuttle and guaranteed 24-hour access for $15/day.

All the Gate 10 parking "Event" tickets are sold out, but last year I gave them a call less than 2 weeks before, and they were able to squeeze me in at one of their lots.  There are a bunch of other lots downtown near the ICC, but I don't know their prices or availability; check back in this thread for some ideas.

As a visitor from out of town for the 1st time, I have no idea where to park with reasonable prices.. Seems the main one Gate 10 is sold out. Can someone give me some ideas? I will be in on Tuesday or Wednesday to check around.

Finally did it! I got parking outdoors near the ICC using the links provided here thanks! Seems Sunday attendance is the lowest of the 4 days thus lots of lots still open.

I've parked at the denison garage (just east of the ICC) and they charge around 24$ a day (give or take). hotels charge more. wed/thurs/fri parking is a little more difficult to find because of people working throughout the week. Anyone coming in on the weekend should have little issue finding parking, because many garage levels are freed up on the weekends.
