Yep, another tourist wanting to know about parking

I am planning on making my first visit to Chicago soon. I know that I don't want to see Chicago by car, but I am driving to town because we're combining it with a visit to relatives in Kentucky. It will stay parked for most of our time in Chicago. We plan to stay at the Tremont, so that area is where I'm looking.

Now, here's the wrinkle: I don't want to disparage an entire city or profession, but I've seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off. My car's not a classic Ferrari, but if I worked at a parking garage, I'd be tempted. So, in the interest of not recognizing my car in a youtube video, I'd really like to find some daily covered parking where I park it and take the keys myself. I've thought about such things as parking at the airport and taking a train down-town, but if I can avoid extra commutes in a strange town, I will.

If you know nothing about parking, but know of an extensive list of places to have good sausage and italian beef at, I'll take that instead. But, you will have it on your conscience that I may be eating it on a worried stomach.
