I come from a place where we really only ever see valet parking in movies. So whats the mood when you pull up? Does the guy eagerly run up trying to grab your keys, or is it okay, for you to refuse, and just say I'll park it myself?
Is the valet guy pissed if you refuse his service?
My buddy this last summer(on a road trip) went to a hotel with Valet parking. His phone was stolen out of the car, but only noticed hours after leaving the hotel. He still doesn't know if the valet guy stole it, or if the car was left unlocked. It was a honda CRV.
Luckily, his 335i was tucked away safely in his garage.
