Parking

The meeting will be held at the Sonesta Hotel, which is within walking distance of restaurants and other bisinesses so it is entirely possible to take public transportation or a taxi from the airport and avoid paying for a rental car.

The hotel overnight parking charge is $25 and this allows guests multiple entries into the garage. For the day-only conference attendees, the discounted flat rate is $18 and this is good for single entry only.
