Are you concerned about where to park when you visit the new Horseshoe Casino Cleveland
? You don't have to be. The casino and the surrounding area offers a huge number of parking spots as well as public transportation to all points around the city. Here's what you need to know:
Valet Parking at Horseshoe Casino ClevelandHorseshoe Casino Cleveland offers valet parking for all guests. The valet entrance is located across the street from the casino at the casino garage on Ontario Street. Valet parking is free for Seven Stars and Diamond guests.
Self Parking at the CasinoThe Horseshoe Casino garage, located across Ontario Street from the casino in the former May's Department store garage space, offers 1,300 self-parking spaces for casino guests. There is also a Casino surface lot at Superior Avenue and West 3rd Street. That entrance is on West 3rd Street.
Horseshoe Casino Cleveland offers free self-parking for 24 hours to casino guests who join the Casino's Total Rewards club and track at least 30 minutes (15 Tier credits.) To get your free parking, swipe your Total Rewards card at one of the kiosks inside the casino. You'll get a validation slip to give to the parking cashier when you exit the parking lot.
Tower City Parking
Located off of W. 3rd St. behind the Tower City complex
, the Tower City lots offer a cheaper alternative to the casino lot if you're not planning to play the slots more than a couple of times. This lot, which is located beneath Tower City is connected to the casino, so you won't have to go outside, especially important during the sometimes harsh Cleveland winter. Current pricing (May, 2012) is $12 for up to six hours. (You pay only $8 if you spend at least $30 in Tower City and get your parking ticket validated at the customer service counter.)
Warehouse District Parking
Additional parking is available in downtown Cleveland's Warehouse District
, located across Euclid and Superior Avenues from Public Square. Lots here are generally full during the day, but offer more affordable parking for evening and weekend visitors. As of May, 2012, many lots are charging $5 for evening and weekend parking.
Cleveland Metered ParkingIf you're feeling lucky (and why are you going to a casino if you don't feel lucky), you can try finding a metered parking spot along Prospect Avenue or one of the side streets surrounding the casino. Fees and parking limits vary by location.
Public Square is the hub for Cleveland's RTA public transportation system
. All four rapid transit lines terminate at public square and dozens of bus lines connect the square with points all over northeast Ohio. Riding RTA is an affordable way to get to and from the casino. One way fares are currently (May, 2012) $2.25. Senior fares (for those age 65 and older) are just $1 each way.
