Hotel Parking

NOTE: Parking at the hotel is limited. If you are an Atlanta local, PLEASE do not drive to the convention; instead, please use MARTA. Please save these spots for people traveling from out of town.

The Marriott  is offering FWA guests a discounted valet parking rate of $20 per night. They only offer valet parking.  All other parking is in nearby lots – Self parking, does not offer in-and-out privileges, and is not discounted. 

If you use valet parking, please remember to tip a suitable amount to the valet. $2-$5 when the valet retrieves your car is considered standard.

Nearby Parking Lots

Furry Weekend Atlanta is not specifically recommending any lot not associated with the host hotel. We are providing the following for informational purposes only, and we recommend that you be aware of any rules and regulations associated with these lots.

Public parking located near the hotel is offered by a variety of parking garages and surface lots, controlled by a variety of different countries. This is a great site of what your parking options are. There is also another parking formation site here. There are a variety of parking finder apps on Android and iPhone you may want to download and checkout before the con. These lots generally do not allow in-and-out privileges. Here are links to some of the lots.

  • Central Parking Atlanta has parking lots at 171 Carnegie Way and 206 Peachtree Street, both are within a block of the Westin. Daily rate ranges between $18 and $22. Further afield there are many other lots that may be less expensive as well.
  • Lanier Parking has several lots near the hotel. Select “Atlanta Downtown” from the dropdown list and look for stations near “Peachtree Center MARTA station” (the blue M on the map). This is located across the street from the hotel.
  • LAZ Parking has several lots located around the area, though most of them are not immediately near the hotel (although they are really very close – only several blocks away).

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: It is IMPERATIVE that you read the rules associated with any lot not located on the hotel property. Very often “24 hour” doesn’t actually mean 24 hour (the clock resets at 2am 5am or 6am, for instance, and cars still in the lot may be booted). Don’t leave any valuables in your vehicle and exercise common sense.

For a lower cost parking option, consider parking in the Long Term Parking lot at one of the many MARTA stations in the Atlanta area and riding to the hotel. Directions on how to get to the convention hotel using MARTA are available here.
