Hotel neighborhood advice - will have car

We reeeeaaaalllly don't want to be spending $100 to park our car at a hotel in the city for three days. What neighborhood can you recommend (looking on hotwire) where we might be in better luck. We now know for sure we will have a car.

We already answered your parking questions back in May.

How many drivers in your group? You could take turns driving around the city in lieu of parking.

There is no neighborhood downtown where you will have better luck with parking rates at a hotel. If you are coming on a weekend you can save quite a bit by parking in a garage other than using the hotel. Another alternative would be to park the car at a T station outside of town for $5-$7 or so a day and take the T into your hotel.

If these don't work for you I would say just bite the bullet and pay the $100 rather than stay out of town. It is really so much better to be right downtown.
