We are planning on staying at the Marriott Residence Inn at River Place during the week between Christmas and New Years. The price is reasonable for a couple traveling with 3 dogs but the parking fee is outrageous - $28/night!
We have stayed at the Seattle Lake Union Residence Inn and found the immediate area had 10 hour meters which charge a reasonable daily maximum of $16.50 for a full day. Nights between 6:00PM and 8:00AM are free.
What is the cost and metered parking situation like around the River Place Inn? Are there parking lots within walking distance? This could be a deal breaker for us.
