No. there is nowhere to park overnight near the GW. There is free parking for the folks using the Wailea beach during the day, but this cannot be used for hotel guest cars.
Ya I'm in the same boat. I loath valet parking... not even the flat fee but feel like I need to fork over more money for tips every time I want to go to a local shop. $30 bucks a day is almost the same price it costs to rent the bloody car as well and when you're already paying a few thousand bucks for a stay it is poor. Just even tack it on and charge one rate, just feels like nickel and diming.
Seems like there's been some discussion online in the past and there are no decent local options, the mall next door tows if you park there. They used to have self park at the hotel but changed it a year ago or so. Valet parking or don't rent.
One other option you might consider if you only need a car for a couple days. There is a national car rental in the lobby. They have a higher rate than some of the places at the airport (65-80 a day) but if you just want to do say 3 or 4 days out and mostly veg at the hotel, you can drop the car off at the end of the day you won't have to worry about paying valet parking. Other consideration, you will need to pay for transport from the airport then.
One of the many reason's I am less than thrilled with the GW......
How can I find these car wholesales?
