I like to know what the parking or valet polices at your condo's. I live at Latidue on the river and the valet service is charging $10.00 for visitors on weekends upto $20.00 per day. Are they charging like that at other condo's?
Here at 50 Biscayne they charge visitors $5 during the day and $15 if you stay over night. For my unit I am entitled to one reserved parking space in the garage and one complimentary valet. The cars have to be registered in the system.
I heard One Miami upped their prices and even charge as much as $50 for a lost ticket, but someone who lives there can probably confirm this?
My guests have to pay $5.00 as well and $15.00 over night. Pretty ridiculous. Now Tutu Pasta's owner is opening up a restaurant downstairs. Guess people who want to eat there will have to pay the valet as well.
Does maintenance in Brickell Key tend to be higher? Someone suggested having pre-paid parking coupons we can use for our guests. I think that would be a great idea. I don't like the fact that my guests always have to pay to come see me. It started out free (just tips) at 50 Biscayne, but then they added the fees.
I guess the money has to either come from the association/owners or from the guests themselves.
I LIVE AT THE LOFT 2 AND THEY JUST COMPLETELY DID AWAY WITH THE VALET SERVICE. BEFORE WE USED TO HAVE THE VALET EXCLUSIVELY TO RESIDENTS. NOW I HEAR THAT MANY OF THE BOARD DIRECTORS OF DOWNTOWN BUILDINGS ARE PETITIONING TO GET RESIDENTIAL PARKING AREAS SUCH AS THOSE ON MIAMI BEACH. I THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT.
They do at One Miami. It is $50 if you lose/don't validate your valet ticket at the front desk when you arrive. I forget the exact cost per hour, but when my best friend visited for the weekend it was $30 for 2 nights (but we thought they charged her wrongly so who knows).
