I know exactly what you're saying, Alyssa! ;)  And yes, I am monitoring. I will share if I find anything.

Ugh.... parking is always such a hassle! Now we have yet another thing to wait for, pulling out hair out and just hoping...

Parking is the only thing I'm confident about every year when it comes to SDCC. Haven't really had problems with it. The only thing to happen was one morning, our first year at the con, our lot was full by the time we got there even though we pre paid. They just put us in the next lot down though so it really wasn't a problem.

Nope though some folks have said Hilton is as long as you have the correct pass displayed. Will have to wait til CCI posts more info to confirm but generally speaking, it's around 5am to late at night (midnight-ish?).

The Hilton charges its guests more for 24 hour self-parking than they charge for the CCI parking. If the CCI parking were 24 hours, Hilton guests would be using it. ;)

Yes but others have mentioned before that they switch the tags/paper after midnight or whatever time and have not had any issues. Not that I recommend it but it's just something that has been shared multiple times.

I'm wondering,
I'm staying at the OMNI for SDCC (Wednesday - Sunday), they charge $38dlls for valet parking.

Could it be possible to self-park in the Hilton Bayfront garage (24hrs) for the $27dlls they charge per day? it's alot cheaper than the OMNI that only offers valet... what are my other options?

Some hotels will close off their lots and restrict to guests only (or pre-paid parking).

You can park at the airport long term parking for the duration.

Do you NEED to have the car? When we stayed in the Gaslamp we didn't even bother renting a car.

Nope, only if you want to venture outside of the area.

We're coming from Tijuana... (It's the first time we're staying at a Hotel for the 5 days, we want the whole experience XD) usually we get up early and cross the border everyday. But now we want to use that time for lining up for HALL H lol!
 I'm starting to consider convincing my parents to give us a ride on Wednesday and pick us up on Sunday up when the con is over lol...

:O

Are there any bus trips you could look into? The way you can catch a charter bus from SD to LA?
