Where to park

Meeting attendees and hotel guests may not park above level 4-A in this garage, or they will be towed. Additional parking will be available at the Cannon parking garage located at 1227 Taylor St. (one block from the hotel). At the Cannon garage on Taylor Street, a special events attendant will be in the garage from 7 – 11 a.m. Attendees must pay the special events attendant $5 (cash only) and place a parking ticket on the car dashboard.
