While on route to dinner and a concert Downtown, we decided to use the Z-Lot facility because of proximity to the restaurant. While viewing the art inside of the structure from the comfort of our vehicle, we suffered an unexpected failure of hydraulics, at the very top of the 10 story structure and were unable to drive it back down. I contacted the Bedrock Parking Team through one of the numerous intercoms located in the structure. A team member immediately came to the scene, put cones out, and gave us a phone number for the control center so that we could arrange for a tow vehicle. The car man also came to the restaurant to update information for them and us, and later brought a second car to stay in contact with us in case events changed while we were waiting. Overall, a very superior and professional response from the Bedrock Parking Team. Thank you!

We were admiring some of the street art in the alleyway known as 'The Belt' when it was pointed out to us that the two interconnected parking lots either side of us were themselves full of street art, with several different pieces on the end walls of each level of these two, ten-storey structures. We took a lift up to the top floor, where we were first able to admire some good 360 degree views of the city before walking down the ramps, checking out the many different murals as we went. It's a nice idea which brightens up otherwise dreary public spaces and if you're a fan of street art and have a bit of time to kill, it's a novel experience to stroll through the lot checking things out.

This brand new parking garage is amazing. Yes, a parking garage and amazing are being used in the same sentence. There are 10 floors of parking in Downtown Detroit and each floor is covered with artwork from artists around the world! It is like a free trip to an art show (well the parking has a fee, but not if you just walk in). Take the glass elevator to the top and walk down and around - and don't forget the other side! Great views from the top as well (eg. Ford Field). Very nice addition to the downtown!

Had a parking pass here for a Tigers game on the 4th, and the game was rescheduled from May 27th. The thing that I thought was cool was I could still reuse my parking pass with the Z for that game. When I scanned my pass to let me in the garage, the gate (not the one the raises to let you in, the metal gate that would normally get let down when the place is closed) proceeded to close right in front of me and denied my entry on both sides of the garage!!! Thus forcing me, and all the cars waiting patiently behind me, to back up out of the garage and I had to buy parking from a different garage! I will never buy parking for this scam of a parking garage again! Park at MGM, where the parking there is 100% free, and a comfortable walking distance from all Detroit activities!

Clean, safe, and convenient location to park downtown, but be careful of how much they charge you upon exit. The Sat & Sun flat rate of $10 sounds straightforward, but I wasn't expecting to be charged $32 for a little over 24 hours.

The math just didn't make sense and while the staff was polite, they failed to solve the problem when I was charged the incorrect amount and their machine produced an illegible receipt.

When I asked the staff on site to explain, she was polite and even called a supervisor, but neither were able to provide resolution - - could not admit the garage was at fault for charging me incorrectly or even provide an accurate receipt. I really felt taken advantage of by this company.

I don't mind paying for convenient parking, but I do mind being overcharged. I'll definitely think twice before parking here again.

There are 10 floors here, so be prepared for walking. Be sure to either pay to park in the garage or pay for the meters on the street. It starts at $25. There are elevators and stairs between all levels. There is a security guard that drives around. There are also bathrooms inside the exit on opposite side of building on main level. There is also "tiny car parking" on of the higher levels, and there are electric car charging spaces.

This parking lot on downtown Detroit is spectacular. 10 levels and each level is covered in art by artists from around the world. You drive through the lot and once you get to the top it's open air with full views of the city of Detroit. Just amazing.

To how you drive into and walk out of this place. Don't expect that you can enter on foot a different way and get to your car. You can't. Focus on the getting in and out and be coherent enough to do the reverse and you'll be fine.

After wanting to see this place for a while, we finally did it, and glad we did. Went on Sunday morning after brunch, and was a great time to see the art. We didn't go to park, just to see the artwork and was there for over an hour. My husband got out on each level (10) to take pictures. He loves his pics! My parents 80+ were able to see from the car and enjoy without having to get in and out. View from the top desk was great too. Beautiful clear day helped there as well. Yes we had to pay the $10 to get in, but well worth it!

This is a very interesting parking garage. Go visit, even if you aren't parking a car. No fee to go into the garage just to look around. There are lots of murals to see. There are murals at each elevator entrance. The 9th floor has an entire wall mural at the back of the 9A and 9B parking area. Go up to the 10th floor (the top floor) for great free views of downtown Detroit. Next to the garage is the Belt Alley which has more art work on the walls and areas to sit outside to eat and drink.
