Valet Parking Debuts Wednesday on Bethesda Row
New service for frustrated parkers will be offered outside Le Pain Quotidien.
Parking on Bethesda Row can sometimes be tricky – ever have nightmares about driving in circles in the Bethesda-Elm garage? But Federal Realty says they’re not responding to a parking problem by introducing valet; rather, they want to introduce an additional service for shoppers, according to Deirdre Johnson, Federal’s director of asset management.
The service is aimed to be a convenience to shoppers especially during a season that can bring inclement weather, according to Johnson.
Additional parking is also available in Federal Realty’s lot at 4950 Elm St., and the company says it’s added an additional 224 parking spaces in that lot in the past two years.
Valet rates are $5 for one hour, $10 for two to four hours and $20 for more than four hours. The service will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and from 11:30 a.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday.
