I don’t like paying $20 or more for overnight parking in Waikiki. While hotel parking used to be quite inexpensive here, it’s edging up towards the unreasonable. With the car rental bargains available, it’s easy to spend more on the parking than on the car itself.
Before accepting your hotel’s charge for parking, you might want to do some checking on your own.
We typically prefer staying at one of the two ends of Waikiki (either near Ala Moana or the Zoo). This week, we’re staying close to the Zoo, and came determined to do some quick research and avoid the $120 charge for six days of hotel parking we would have otherwise incurred.
At the far end of Waikiki, near the Honolulu Zoo.
Near Ala Moana.
There is still free parking along the Ala Wai Canal, on Ala Wai Boulevard. We’ve heard rumors, however, that this may change to metered parking soon.
If you have suggestions on discount parking in Waikiki, we’d love to hear about them.
