W Los Angeles - Westwood - One of our editors once paid $14 to park at the W for an hour. Looks like the price has decreased to $10 the first hour and $4 for each additional hour. But if you stay overnight, the price shoots up to a steep $32 for a sedan and $35 for an SUV. (That picture above was taken in 2007.)
New York Marriott Marquis - Valet is $55, and good luck if you have a big ride: SUVs and minivans pay $65 and SUVs that are 6 feet and 2 inches or taller have to pony up $80. If you want in-and-out privileges, that'll be an extra $10.
Malibu Beach Inn - The $23-per-night valet charge with in-and-out privileges may not seem excessive, but before Hollywood bigwig David Geffen bought the place and reopened it in fall 2007, parking was free.
The Blackstone - The $47 daily valet fee is enough of an incentive to book the Chicago hotel's Bike Chicago package and pedal around town.
Omni Chicago Hotel - Not to be outdone by its Windy City peer, the Omni's valet parking costs $49 per night.
Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay - Valet parking is $45 per night, but the real killer is that we hear there's a free lot across the street and the hotel provides complimentary two-hour "coastal access" parking for non-guests. Huh. So people not staying in the hotel get a better parking deal than those who pay for a $399 room.
Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles - If you want to keep your wheels here, it'll cost you $40 a night, in-and-out privileges included.
InterContinental Boston - A reader went here for a job interview and had to pay $20 to park for an hour and it wasn't even valet (hope the job was worth it). If you stay the night, it'll be 39 smackers.
Hotel Monaco Seattle - A reader tweeted us saying overnight parking here cost $30, but the hotel now charges $40 plus tax. Though Hotel Monaco does offer incentives for eco-consciousness; you'll save 25 percent off if you bring your hybrid.
