Ground Transportation/Parking Information

PARKING INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCOUNTED $27 SELF PARKING ONLY 

Location of the parking lot: 50 E Ohio St (Across from the hotel @ Rush & Ohio Streets)

Self-Parking: $27 per night with in and out privileges.

Instructions for Attendees staying at the Chicago Marriott Downtown: Keep the white InterPark ticket that you received when you parked your vehicle. When you check-in to the hotel, notify the desk agent that you have parked a vehicle in the self-parking lot. Any time prior to you taking your vehicle out of the garage, please stop by the InterPark desk (located at the north-west corner of the hotel lobby) to get your self-parking ticket validated. At your time of departure, proceed to the parking garage and drive your vehicle to the gate. Insert the original white ticket into the gate reader and the gate will open. Should you have challenges, press the ASSISTANCE button on the gate reader and an InterPark staff member will assist you. Self-parking privileges expire at 4:00 PM on the day of departure.

Instructions for Attendees not staying at our Conference Hotel: For those guests that will not be staying at the hotel; you will need to get you $27 discounted stickers. Those discounted stickers will be available at the 5th Floor registration desk in the hotel. When you obtain your sticker, you need to place the sticker in the empty space of the self-parking ticket.  It is essentially a bar code that when they are ready to depart they insert into the machines in the lobby of the parking garage not at the hotel. That deducts the price down to $27. They will then insert the white ticket into the gate reader upon exiting and the gate will open.
