Booking Link will be here when we receive it from the venue


Please note that if you wish to book nights other than October 31, November 1, and November 2, you should call the hotel rather than use the booking link to ensure that IF a group rate is available it will be applied to your additional nights. Additional nights at group rate are dependent on availability of rooms at the hotel. When speaking with the booking agent, please tell them to notify Samantha Fernandes who has the ability to authorize additional nights at the group rate IF rooms are available.  The availability of discounted rooms for nights other than October 30, October 31 and November 1 is not up to us - it is up to the venue to determine if rooms are available .

Hotel Guest Parking:

Overnight Self-Parking is $52 per night with in-and-out privileges.  (All Parking Fees are subject to change without notice) The Wolf Point garage is privately owned and not a part of the hotel. Please contact them with any questions about parking and when you will be charged for each day of parking. We list the Wolf Point garage only because it is the most convenient garage to the hotel, not because we recommend you use it. Any issues with parking must be taken up with the garage, not with the festival or the venue as neither have control over the garage management. 

Garage clearance is 6.8ft. Please do note that the parking garage servicing the hotel cannot accommodate buses, motor coaches, or passenger vans. The hotel does not offer valet parking.
