Revel free parking ends 1/25/13

saw this posted elsewhere:

"Hello and thank you for contacting Revel, we appreciate the opportunity to assist you. Our free self-parking will continue to remain available until Fri 1/25/13. Starting on Saturday 1/26/13 the fee will once again be $5.00. The electrical systems that operated the gates upon exiting the garage were damaged during Hurricane Sandy and we have only recently been able to repair them. The free parking was more of a happy solution to a temporary problem and as we did not know how long it would take to repair, we did not advertise the benefit."

"it was only a matter of time".... IMHO ~ Revel is using Hurrricane Sandy as an excuse, they probably had plans to charge for parking long before Sandy Hit....What's next, pay toilets at the Revel?

huh?

that makes absolutely no sense.

they always had plans to charge for parking; why else would they have installed mechanical parking gates!

furthermore, they always said that free parking was for a limited time.

and they could have started charging for parking at any time; they didn't need sandy as an excuse to explain why they were not charging, nor do they need to use sandy as an excuse for why they will soon begin charging.

frankly, i think it's a mistake for the revel to start charging for parking. it's a point of difference for them and is a low cost customer acquisition tactic.

Dumb idea they should go back to free parking. It creates a special niche along with the AC Club

I also think that adding a fee in January is questionable.

To be fair there are permanent looking signs advertising the parking fee there, it's just that you can drive in and drive out right now.

Probably a poor business decision, but on the other hand, are people going to really get worked up over $5? Furthermore, don't they have free parking for certain levels of revel card holders, such that it's another 'point' for their players club people to get free parking (like at the Borgata)?

Those who may have been drawn to Revel for the free parking will now go elsewhere. Revel may have had a shot at some business from these "free parkers" ...... in one weeks time they will not..........

The last thing anyone thinks of when choosing a Casino is wheather there's free parking or not. Still, they should have free parking, it's minimal revenue and maximum irratation for customers. Nickle and dimed to death.

Speak for yourself Bob, how often do you pay for parking?
