    I just dropped my S at Canopy Airport Parking. Mine is the fourth Model S in valet this morning: two blacks, a multi-red, and my Sig red. We're occupying the four available Juice Bar spots.

    When I brought my S to them for the first time, in October, the attendants had never seen one before. Now, they're old hands. I recommend them when you have to park at DIA.

    I don't think that's a problem: in valet they shuffle cars around as needed and sometimes the Juice Bar spots are ICE'd temporarily, or there may be more EV's than charging spots. I see from the Tesla app that they plugged mine in shortly after I dropped it off, and then took it off charge the next day. They know what day you'll be returning, and my car has always been fully charged when I picked it up.

    Out in the covered self-parking barn, though, ICE'd Juice Bar spots are a real issue. That's one of the reasons I'm willing to pay more for valet parking. Another reason is that they almost never move the S's out of the enclosed drop-off area, even when not plugged in. There's a lot more accountability that way, and valet attendants always have eyes on your car.

    Hmm I see. Never did the valet before. I spose it makes sense I don't need to be plugged the whole time.
