  • Busses/Motor homes: $30.00
  • Tractors/Trailers: $50.00

Other parking

With all of these options, we should have more parking than we will ever need; of course, we have said that before about convention space, and look where it has gotten us. Just in case, Smallman Street has numerous other parking lots and garages located along its length. They vary in price and availability.

Important note: ALL prices are subject to change without notice! Anthrocon will try its best to keep on top of any rate changes and announce them here, but neither endorses nor makes any claims regarding the price, quality or availability of parking at or around the hotel. We strongly advise you to confirm the rates when you arrive, and also to confirm the hours when your vehicle will be available to you. It is up to you to judge the security of any individual location. Our attendees are advised that parking anywhere other than a garage will be at their own risk.
