I personally would just pocket any $$$ they pay for repairs. Get a good quote from a body shop and then present that to the parking garage.
Call me paranoid, but after having my 08 Expy painted 6 different times, I don't trust anybody for paint/body repairs. That dent ain't pretty, but it is small.

Find someone who guarantees his work and has exp. with aluminum-which is what the hood is made out of. It's a bit more than a standard ding as it's on a line or ridge but not a overly complicated fix at all though.
1978 F250 Lariat 4x2
2008 Expedition Eddie Bauer 4x2
Dealer estimate was $450
Parking garage paid up with no questions asked.
I had the whole front painted, bumper, grill, and hood
The hood had been painted previously before I got it, so was the grill.
The Ford emblem in the grill was glued on so we had to destroy it to get it off, so thats new too.
There was some aluminum corrosion on the front lip that was corrected in the process too.
I also had the tow hook covers painted in gloss so they blend in now, and the license plate bracket was removed. Much cleaner look
All back together
