We strongly encourage attendees to carpool, use public transportation, or have friends or family drop them off at the hotel.
But if you need to park:
Self-service parking at the Marriott itself is $5.00 per car per day. Valet parking at the Marriott is $15.00 per car per day. The Marriott has limited parking space.
Though charged parking at the Marriott was not our decision, we hope the fee actually helps the con in the end by encouraging carpooling and dropoffs so people that need to park might have a better chance to do so. In exchange, the Marriott also agreed to never raise starting room costs above $100, even five years from now. We're excited at the chance to save attendees money in the end.
If you're not a hotel guest: you'll pay when you enter. There are no in/out privileges because of the high volume of demand.
If you're a hotel guest: the cost of parking will be added to your room (they'll be asking at the front desk if you're parking). Technically, that means you have in/out privileges... but spaces are not guaranteed. If you choose to leave and come back, good luck to you.
