How is the parking if you arn't staying in a hotel? Is it first come first serve around the Meydenbauer? Or do they have some huge parking garage?

    There are several different parking garages around that area, all within just a few blocks. You don't have to worry about it.

    Yeah, parking at the Maydenbauer was plentiful at $15 per day last year. As I lived nearby, I didn't have a hotel. I just had some people that I met there register my car with their hotel room so I could use the hotel parking lot. :P

    I stayed at the doubletree last year, and there was plenty of parking. And it was easly within walking distance.

    Yes, easily within walking distance if you like walking UPHILL AT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE!

    You know what I did last year? I just drove right into the Meydenbaur about 30 mins after the doors opened for the pre-registrants. I parked within 20 feet of the elevator, took out my PC gear, and rode the elevator up to the BYOC room. I didn't even have to wait in a line. I just made sure I had my badge on so they'd let me in. It felt like my own, private VIP entrance.

    Yeah, it costs some money, but it was worth it. Especially since I had my PC with me.

    Jesus, why'd you get a hotel so far away?

    I can just park in the Civica building a couple of blocks away for free as I still have an office there.

    That'd be it. I might have to buy a meal there this year to compensate.

    If you park at azteca dont be suprised if you get towed...

    That CUSTOMER PARKING ONLY sign is there for a reason.

    Are you that out of shape? I thought it was a nice walk, and not too steep at all. It was convenient because the hotel I was staying was also hosting another con I was going to, however MUCH smaller than PAX; Dragonflight, and kept me busy at night when PAX was done for the evening.

    Dude, I live on a great lake, our land is either flat or almost flat. We don't walk at an uphill angle all like that out here. It's just not geographically possible.

    I highly recommend parking at Bellesquare mall. It's not "that" far away, you won't have to pay a dime, and you'll see lots of good places to hit for lunch on your walk to Meydenbauer. Plus you won't have to worry about being towed.
