"This is very helpful. Let me add just a few things: (1) All metered parking downtown is free on Sundays. It's sometimes free on holidays, but check that in the Post to be sure. I'm not sure which holidays are free. (2) The metered parking on 14th has a 2-hour limit, as you note. We saw police chalking tires one day, so they seem to enforce that. I have no idea how often, however. (3) Most of the surface lots around here seem to adjust prices depending on whether there is a big event at the Convention Center. The highest I've seen was $25/day in August during the Beer Festival, but it's often $20 for weekend events."
