There will be reasonable rates for parking near the Marriott during the Spring NABC. Through Parkway Corporation, D4 has arranged for substantially discounted rates at two sites.
12th & Filbert – immediately across Filbert Street from the entrance to the Marriott @ $16/day
12th & Walnut – entrance on the West side of 12th & Sansom Street @ $12/day
If you park at these facilities, you will receive a “ticket” when you arrive. When you come to the Marriott, make sure you pick up one of our discounted tickets at the information booth. You will use THIS ticket when you pay for your parking on the way out. The information booth will be manned for about one hour before each session.
These rates are for All Day.. There is no time limit. Be aware that “early bird” rates at other lots may appear to be competitive, but the hours usually don’t work with our bridge schedule. Often they require you to be out by 6 PM.
This parking is not available for overnights – the cheapest overnight parking is at the Philadelphia airport (about $10) with a train to the Marriott (about $3).
There is a parking lot on Spring Street between 15th and 16th Streets that offers Saturday and Sunday “park & lock” parking for $7.
