Spreckle's has underground valet parking for $10. If you can find street parking, that'd probably better.

Don't use the parking under the building. It gets VERY backed up. Instead use Horton plaza which is a block away and gives 3 hours of free validation from machines in the courtyard.

We went the The Grant Grill to park ($15) and had a light meal in the bar during their happy hour. It was a quick 2 block walk to the theatre from there, and the hotel was nicely decorated for the holidays!

Be aware that the theater is not set up for even mildly disables persons for any where except the orchestra seats. You must let Goldstar know in advance if you cannot climb stairs or if you have a problem with steeply pitched balconies. That said, they are very very accommodating when you do give them warning.

Be aware that parking in the Spreckles lot is by valet once you enter, so if you do not want to surrender your keys, park elsewhere. The valets are extremely good at quickly moving out the cars after the show.

Try to get orchestra or an aisle seat if in mezzanine or balcony. The seats up are very close to the next row, cramped and uncomfortable.

The website for the venue, Spreckles Theatre) notes that valet parking is available. Well, parking in the building is a flat $22; across the street in the NBC building, covered parking is $10. Caveat emptor.

Share anything else here. Just start typing...Parking at the underground theater locaton is ok when parking, but getting your car after the show is a very, VERY long, process... Not worth the price and waiting time. It would be more efficient to walk fix blocks than wait the hour or so to get your car...
