parking a rental car in Zurich

I am visiting Zurich next month and am considering renting a car for the week. I've been advised this is not a good idea because it will cost an exorbitant amount of money to park. I lived in Geneve in the mid-90's and was looking forward to having the car so I could revisit some of my old favorites as well as other places that I never made it to. I'll be staying on Morgartenstrasse which appears to be pretty close to the center. Can someone briefly summarize the rules? Are there parts of the city where one can park on the street for free?

thanks,

Mark

In Blue zones you can park up to an hour and a half and at night for free but in the area around Morgartenstrasse you can forget about finding anything available (you'll spend most of your vacation driving around in circles looking to no avail). Have you asked the hotel you're staying at if they have parking available? Most likely if they do it wont be for free.
There is a Hertz Rent-a-car on Morgartnstrasse 5, couldn't you just pick up a car there for a days excursion?
