    Hotel parking

    Does anyone have realistic parking rates or count data for hotels in downtown areas? I've already looked at the ITE and ULI data, and the don't make a distinction between urban and suburban locations?

    I wish I could help you - ask me this time next year and I can give you some downtown Baltimore numbers.

    Sorry all our new downtown hotels are casino related or mixed with condos. MGM Grand has about 12,000 space garage with 400 rooms. Not helpful unless you have a gigantic hotel/casino with a 150,000 square foot conference facility.

    we just do one per room but in reality, most hotels dream of 100% occupancy and only get 80% on a good day so that other 20% goes to the employees...

    I would try to get them to build a public parking garage for their guests and to serve the downtown, if you are in a situation where you need more parking, that is...

    parking requirement

    I use 1 per room, but you also need to factor in ballroom functions and other events.

    One per 1.5 rooms in urban and 1.0 in suburban with 1 per 4 employees in the Local Plan here but given thats a different continent... probably not much use :P

    I don't know if this will help at all, but it is a reference book published by ITE on parking space demand by occupancies.

    http://www.ite.org/tripgen/parking.asp#Articles

    ITE is the Institute of Transportation Engineers, and if you go to that site, there is a book listed on parking generation and you can view the table of contents.

    The book is entitled "Parking Generation" 3rd edition.
