The DoubleTree Hotel has a parking garage with approximately 270 spaces, first come, first served. The rate for parking in their garage will be $12 for up to 12 hours. We have been told that the hotel will place a “for hotel guests only” sign at the parking garage in an attempt to minimize the number of people who park there to go elsewhere in the city; as attendees of an event at the hotel, you and your guests ARE hotel guests and ARE permitted to park in the garage.
