Downtown parking at the Library Garage

We decided to go on a last minute getaway to Nashville and booked the Courtyard by Mariott via Priceline. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if parking at the Library Garage is a viable lower cost option to parking at the hotel.

I saw here (www.parkitdowntown.com/parking/metro.php)that the garage is open 24-hours and has more than reasonable rates, but since overnight parking is not specifically mentioned I was hoping someone in the know could advise for certain.

Thanks!

Well Nashville was great and I must assume that the Library Garage is the cheapest place to park in the city.

Each 1/2 Hr. $1.00

Max for 24 Hr. Period $6.00

After 5pm and Weekends $4.00

We arrived and parked on Thursday night around 10:30pm and then headed out about 7:30am Saturday morning, paying $17.00. We parked again later Saturday evening and then left around noon on Sunday paying $4.00.

Not entirely sure how they arrived at $17 for that first period, but given the hotel wanted $22/day for valet, I'm not complaining!

Thanks for letting us know, Infrequent_Travelers.

I finally was able to find parking rates, though a little too late for you. But hopefully it will help future visitors. That $17 does look strange, but the others look correct.

Main Library Parking Rates:

* First hour of parking: FREE

* 1 - 1.5 hours: 75 cents

* 1.5 - 2 hours: $1.50

* 2 - 2.5 hours: $2.50

* 2.5 - 3 hours: $3.50

* 3 - 3.5 hours: $4.50

* More than 3.5 hours: Beginning January 1, 2007: $6.00 (the daily maximum for those who park before 5:00 p.m. on weekdays)

* The evening maximum parking rate, (after 5:00 p.m.), and weekend maximum parking rate is $4.00.

* In order to receive parking validation for free and reduced-rate parking, bring your parking ticket to the security desk in the Main Library's entry hall.
