Southwest has two flights a day that are direct from Buffalo to Orlando.
Help with Parking - So I get a great deal at the Westin at DTW because my daughter works for Starwood, but not too thrilled to pay $23/day for parking for 12 days. Was wondering if I could park at Quik Park, get shuttled by them to the Airport, then find my way to the Westin. We are staying the night before we fly out in the morning. Then on the way home, we just get the Quik Park shuttle to our car. This way parking is only $10/day with a free day. Opinions please, we have never stayed at the Westin. Is it easier to go through security? We will have to check bags in the morning so my understanding is we have to check our bags then go back to the hotel (if we want) and go through their security. Is it worth it or should I just stay at the Fairfield which is right next door to Quik Park?
So here's the deal, if I book the park and fly it is $275 (we need 13 nights of parking plus the room) The friends and family rate for the Westin is $69 (no parking included, to pay for parking is $24/day) which makes it over $300. Here is what I was thinking - family rate at the Westin @ $69 park offsite at Quikpark @10/day - 1 day free = $120, which makes it $189. Quikpark will shuttle us to the Delta gate, but just worried about getting to the Westin from there? Also wondering how far it is to bag check? Is it really worth it if I have to go to bag check and our flight is early so may end up going thru regular security anyway? (8:30 a.m.)
If your flight is at 8:30, the Westinghouse security gate is not open. The Westin hotel is a 4 minute walk to the Delta baggage checkin so that is no problem. Some people say it is longer but it is right beside the end of the delta check in. It is a great hotel . You can go through security the night before and go to the terminal for dinner or shopping[

[/QUOTE]Thanks, I was trying to figure out if it would be worth the hassle to park offsite and then stay at the Westin vs staying at the Fairfield and getting a shuttle in the morning (how much time I would save in the morning so I could sleep in a bit more - early flight 8:30) So maybe stay at the Westin, park offsite and get a shuttle to the terminal (Westin) the night before, stay at the Westin, get up and go through baggage check and regular security I guess. Sound like a good plan??? Trying to save some $$ on parking (it's like half price to park offsite).
I'm not sure about a coupon for Buffalo Airport parking but we normally use The Parking Spot and there are coupons available for them. GREAT company! More than once they have unloaded my luggage from the shuttle directly into my car. Each person gets a bottle of cold water when you're leaving. Top notch customer service and about the same $$ as Buffalo Airport parking.Is there still a coupon for parking at the Buffalo Airport?
