The Park 'n jet lot was full, so I decided to give diamond a try. It was a mistake.
While it was an ok experience finding a spot and getting a ride to the airport, I was dissapointed with the leaving experience.
The first bus from the airport was full, and we were told that they were waiting there for quite a while so they could pack the bus as full as possible, instead of sending for another bus. Had to wait another 10 minutes for the next bus to arrive.
The "free" carwash line was so long, that it was not worth the hassle to wait for it.
They only had one pay booth open, so the wait to exit the lot took 15 minutes. We thought we would get a decent deal because of the buy one get one free coupon from the happenings book. However, unlike park 'n jet, we found out that diamond charges you not by the day, but by the minute. So, we got charged for the extra 8 hours and however many extra minutes we were in the lot. They do not post the fact that you will be charged this way, and they do not post the prices anywhere except when you are leaving... pretty deceptive.
The self-serve parking is $7.50, not $6 like the citysearch page says.... still much higher than park 'n jet.
Diamond has lost my business forever. I'll park at Park 'n Jet next time, and if they are full, I'll park at the airport long term parking.
Convenience is king at this lot for flyers who are drivers first..
If you're heading out of town for a few days, Diamond Airport Parking offers a low-cost alternative to using the long-term lot on the airport premises. Yes, Diamond is an off-airport facility, but when you consider what you get in return for a shuttle ride, it may be the best deal you make on your trip.
Diamond will pick you up at your parking space, shuttle you to the airport curb and then reverse the process when you return. You get help with your luggage, your car is kept clear of snow and other detritus, and, if on your return you have car problems, there are people around to help. If security is a concern, consider that there is no public access to the Diamond lot--you can't say that about the airport parking lot. And given how tricky parking at the airport is these days, knowing you'll find a secure spot and do so quickly may be all it takes to make the parking fee at Diamond worthwhile.
