Parking?
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:55:04 PM »

How much is parking near the convention center? Is there really a 6 hour limit or is there a special deal for the event?

http://www.sanjose.org/content/downtown-san-jose-parking-and-maps <--- These should apply if Fanime doesn't degotiate any deals. But I think they do negotiate a lower rate, but I don't remember what it is.

My group parked in the garage next to the con center last year for a flat rate of $20 a day I believe? Don't know if that happens every year but it was nice.

This is a great thread:

Please note that the rates have changed from last year, so you may want to confirm all info on there.

I've posted this a couple times, but here goes again.

I can personally vouch for this because I did this last year. If you plan on leaving Monday, then I would park at the parking garage where Psycho Donuts is. Since Monday is a holiday, parking is free. If you park Thursday, Friday, etc., and leave Monday, you will not have to pay anything when you leave since the parking gates will be left up.

I'm staying at the Hilton, but read in some feedback from last year that parking at the Hilton was completely full by Friday.  I was wondering if you are allowed to keep your car overnight in the convention center's parking garage?

The Hilton's parking lot is pretty small, so it does fill up fast.

I'm not 100% sure of the conventions parking is open 24 hours, but all the other parking garages near by are.

Fanime Multi pass Parking?
« Reply #7 on: May 07, 2013, 02:09:47 PM »

Last year i saw a sign that was hidden into the back of the door that reads "parking special rates for fanime con users, buy multipass"
was abit surprise about it and took advantage of it, even though it was abit too late to noticed it (this was on saturday)

I contacted the San jose convention center garage and asked them if they would do the same and how much!...
sadly one of the employees said they wont be doing multipass  / even pass for parking this year!..

Would like a second opinion if this is true or not.

The back of what door? Can you please PM me this information so we can get in contact with that garage and figure it out? (I have never heard of a multipass.)

Parking at the con center for the entire weekend
« Reply #9 on: May 21, 2013, 01:52:15 AM »

I was wondering if there was any information regarding a parking discount for parking at the con center for the whole weekend. Last year I parked in the main convention center parking (since we stayed at marriott that has no parking other than valet) from Thursday afternoon till Monday. When we were leaving Monday, we went to the parking office in the con center parking area and they had a special $50 parking rate for that entire time. Will there be anything like that this year?

*bump*
Now that Staff is onsite, I am hoping something can be lowered...a speculative $10-12 thur-mon would be nice again.

So was anyone else a dumbass like me and park in 488 Almaden's parking garage?  Open M-F, no mention of being closed on holidays but... they are. -_-;;  Car was stuck in there until Tuesday morning at 7.  What an expensive mistake, I had to stay in San Jose another night :(

My friend did the free parking, too. We weren't sure if it would work since this was our first year trying it, but it did! (Only if you leave on Monday, though)...
