Free Parking Is Back At Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino began to charge $10 for self-parking last August. Casino management monitored the customer reaction on social media and from angry nearby residents. The charge went away Tuesday.
I have to admit. As much as I love playing blackjack at the Hard Rock, the parking fee kept me away since August. I used to visit about once a month.
Charging for casino parking isn’t just a thing in Tampa. I went to Las Vegas for the first time in about 10 years this weekend. No casinos charged for parking back then. But now, just about every casino on the strip charges at least $5.
According to this photo tweeted by the Tampa Bay Times of a promotional mailer, it looks like you will need a Seminole Wild Card to get the free parking – otherwise there’s a $5 charge.

The reaction about the news from my Twitter friends is pretty positive!
@WQYKGeno It also created a line to exit the garage, that is already a mess because of the construction. Poorly thought out.

@WQYKGeno haven't been there since that charge was implemented! Good to know it's going away.

@WQYKGeno as a valet, you have no idea how much this made my day
