I’d tweak it a bit because if someone only reads the first sentence they think parking is free.

Validate your self-parking ticket with the hotel front desk to enjoy complimentary parking.

Fishbone’s suggestion sounds good to me!

@violet25:  You may want to tweak the language just slightly.  Is this some sort of stamp that a member of the hotel staff must apply to the guest’s ticket for it to be valid? If so, this wording may work:   

“Complimentary self-parking is available in the hotel’s garage, with a validated ticket. Please have a member of the hotel staff validate your parking ticket prior to leaving the hotel.”

I would be as specific as necessary and appropriate. For example, if the guest has to stamp his or her own ticket on a machine in the lobby, I would say that. Or, if the hotel staff stamping the tickets are at the front desk, I would say that.

ETA:  I see another good suggested was offered by Fishbone while I was writing and editing my post. 🙂
