free 2hrs parking zone around Hyatt Embarcadero

Hi,

I heard there are some time zone that you could get 2 hrs free parking in San Francisco. I will arrive my hotel very early (6:00am-7:00am), can I find such time zone for short free parking so that I could check-in and leavel my luggage in hotel? I perfer back the car to car rent company after I have breakfast in Hotel.

Thanks!

Pretty much that entire area is metered although the meters may not start as early as 6:00AM.

However, that area is not easy to drive around if you don't know your way. Many one way streets and lots of "No Left Turns." Market St. runs at an angle so getting from north to south of Market can be tricky.

Make it easy on yourself and park either at the hotel or one of the Embarcadero Center lots.

There are some slots in front of the hotel entrance. I wonder if the valets would let you park there while you check in?

Sorry for a stupid question: for the meters whose rate is $2 per hour, can I just put $1 for half hour parking? Or the minum charge is for one hour?

Thanks!

You can put in as little as a nicket and get a minute or so.

i called on your behalf. go to the valet entrance - which is the main entrance.

tell valet you are just going to drop off/register. receptionist said it was free.

register. you'll leave your bags with the bell man until you can get into your room.

The meteres on Mission St in front of 1 Market, across the street from the Hyatt start at 7am, and they start ticketing early.
