What are Los Angeles Hotel Parking Rates, LAX and downtown?

Hello my friends,
I am investigating two stays in the Los Angeles area. The first would be near LAX and the second in the downtown LA area. I was wondering if there were any list of parking rates at different properties. It is difficult to judge value when a key part of the equation is missing. Do any LAX properties offer free parking? Do any downtown LA hotels offer parking deals? Many thanks
Rupesh

PS: Specifically looking at 4pts vs Westin LAX and Westin Bonaventure vs Sheraton Downtown in LA.

LAX hotels are in the $15 range and I can't speak for Sheraton Downtown, but the Bonaventure is a whopping $35. Of course there are 3rd party lots near LAX and Downtown hotels that charge less.

Sheraton LAX has a lot behind it and on each side that can be closer to $11.

The Gateway is valet only (not sure how much they charge now) - self parking is in the airport parking lot behind the hotel, but it's a decent walk, especially if the front of the lot is full and you're hauling bags.

That lot charges hotel guests $13.41 w/tax for self-parking, including in/out. If you just park/lock and don't take out your car, you can sometimes lie that you're airport parking and pay the $11.91 rate (no in/out)...depends on how swift your cashier is.

Be careful with self-parking at the Sheraton Gateway as the pass is only valid until a certain time and if you have a late checkout then you will have to pay for extra usage of the lot.

Valet at the Gateway is $21 + tax/night. I always park at the private lot just west of the Gateway, it's about $11 and an easier walk to the front door than the Gateway self-park.

Four Points LAX recently raised their self-park from $14 to $16.

Westin LAX is $22.80/night self, $30.30/night valet.

Westin Bonaventure occasionally offer a parking inclusive package at $125 a night - look for the link on the hotel's special offer page. They only offer valet parking.

I believe Sheraton Downtown LA charges $28/day self-park, more for valet.

If I am not mistaken, parking rates for each hotel is listed on its own page.

That said, re Gateway: I recently parked on the street behind the hotel with no problem (98th St.). Must observe the hours posted. For four nights I did that.

The Sheraton Suites Fairplex is usually free, but there is a parking charge in Sep when the LA Fair is going on next door.

Sheraton Garden Grove on some weekdays has a $114 Anaheim Escape Package rate which includes parking and is cancellable until 6 pm day of stay. This rate is usually either better or within $3 of all other rates open to most.

Additionally at least the following properties in the LA area have free street parking within a few easily walkable blocks for overnight, plus on weekends and during some weekdays (limited at most only by a ban on parking during one day of the week for street cleaning):

Four Points LAX Airport
Sheraton Garden Grove (street cleaning 2nd & 4th Thu of each month starting at 8 am)

For LAX-nearish-adjacent I use the Four Points Culver City. Parking is $10.

Street parking is free, adjacent to the LAX Sheraton and 4 Points. Just read the signs.
