    Not sure. That would be a question for tripadvisor. Did you try contacting them? It is an interesting question.

    Quick question... I see parking is 2 blocks away and costs extra-- both fine, but can I park my own car? I prefer no valet as I'm picky about my car.

    Yes, just park your car in the public lot that is recommended by the hotel. A two-three block walk and discounted by the hotel. Easy in and out.
