The Old Clare Hotel, of which we are affiliated with, does offer some valet parking.  This parking is available on a first come first serve basis, and is priced at $25 for four hours.  Guests may access the entrance to the hotel from either Kensington Street or Carlton Street, on the corner of Broadway.  Guests will need to park outside of the hotel and walk into the reception desk to organise parking with the concierge.  The hotel reception desk can be reached at 02 8277 8277, option 2.
