The Parking Spot JFK:  The Way to Go

An arduous trip to India and then to London pending. A long drive from New Hampshire to New York City and take off from JFK on Virgin Atlantic. Enter the Parking Spot close by the airport. We had done the drill before and been highly satisfied. Now we were primed to do it again.

What we were not expecting was the “new look” of the Parking Spot -  from the big welcoming signs at the  lot, the even more friendly staff, the new spotted shuttle busses with soft leather seats, with a free USA Today at check in and chilled bottled water at exit, with shuttles running every 5-7 minutes, and clip on Coupons giving you a $14.90 a day deal. Wow!

It seems everything old is new again at the recently refurbished and customer friendly The Parking Spot. However, the same old courtesy from employees who take your luggage out of your car and load it into the leopard spotted livery bus, the same old careful and expeditious driving – both were still part of the scene.

The motto of The Parking Spot is “We have airport parking covered.” That they do.

Courtesy, economy, cleanliness, convenience, efficiency all merge. And best of all 24/7 everything is all systems go at this top of the line parking facility that showcases why The Parking Spot is the nation’s largest near-airport parking operator.

A final thought – we arrived back in the USA in the middle of a cold December night. We finally got thru customs and collected our baggage and called The Parking Spot. Within minutes the spotted bus arrived and whisked us to the lot where our SUV was warmed up and waiting for us.

Oh, if everything in modern life worked as smoothly.
