Birmingham leases parking to Daxton Hotel

By Grace Lovins

The Daxton Hotel, 298 S. Old Woodward, was unanimously approved to lease four parking spaces from Birmingham after city commissioners approved a lease agreement during the meeting on Monday, November 13.

City attorney Mary Kucharek explained that the company that owns and operated the hotel, Woodward Brown, wanted to enter a lease agreement with the city to accommodate their valet parking zone. The agreement provides Daxton with four parking spaces in the public right-of-way.

According to Kucharek, the city and the Daxton Hotel entered an agreement in January of 2021 that created a public valet parking system at the Daxton. At that point, the city already had valet services scattered around the city which has since stopped. Now that the 2021 agreement is up, the Daxton wanted to enter a new agreement where they could lease the spots from the city.

The agreement stated that The Daxton Hotel will pay the city $10,368 per year, coming out to $864 per month, to use the four parking spaces. City manager Jana Ecker further explained that the agreement between the city and Daxton is not fundamentally different from the last agreement. What’s different is that the hotel is not required to service the public with valet parking, although a representative from the hotel said they will still provide public valet services.
