My cousins ranging from Kansas City to Michigan were coming to Chicago for a little family reunion at Wrigley Field. The Michigan contingent missed her train and decided to drive. I'd already had great luck (other stories for another time) with Spot Hero, so I asked her her car plate number and reserved her a $25 spot for $10! I sent her the link which included the address for GPS and a photo of the parking entrance: her first time driving into Chicago and parking in Wrigleyville an hour before the Cubs/Cards matinee was the highlight of her crazy stressful morning and I was her spot hero! Now if the Cubs could just've won (Arrieta dropped from 11-1 to 11-2)...our family seems to curse the home team even when the locals are favored by Vegas; perhaps we can use that secret to our advantage! I just read a few negative reviews and had the exact opposite experiences: the app is intuitive and has worked great for me the half dozen or so times I ventured out of the suburbs and into the city; the pricing has always been accurate and always has saved me 60% to 70% off the standard parking fees. For example, the garage at the corner of Wabash and Ontario would've cost $36, but we paid $10. It's great for reserving spots days ahead of time or on the fly. Plus it sends a reminder when a reservation is coming up: it makes me feel organized and in control.
Wrong pricing Downtown Chicago. Said 10 was 29. Total fail. Valet parking cheaper. Won't use again
Even in a pinch! I have been using spothero as an out-of-town person studying in Chicago downtown for about a year now. 100% satisfaction. At one point in time I had difficulty exiting a parking garage and spothero customer service came to my rescue immediately with the 800 number. I could not ask for more and it outstanding customer service attitude! I have recommended you over and over and over again! Thank you for all you guys do.:-)
A Necessary App to Have If you want to save time and money while traveling in unfamiliar areas or just out and about, this is an app for you. You know how parking can be, it's never worth a ticket. Use it once, use it often. It's a little more stress out of your life.
Horrible Unreliable and works poorly. Half the time it won't let you complete your order and says to email support. Don't use in a pinch
I use spot hero all the time I have never had a problem with spot hero, I always find the best deals and they try to make it as convenient as possible for getting in and out of the garage.
