Parking and Internet
Marriott Parking: Please allow yourself plenty of time. With complimentary valet parking (one space per room) at the Marriott, there may be a backlog of cars to be parked if everyone shows up at once. And, anyone using valet parking would need to bring in any luggage to be stored by the hotel until check-in later in the day.
Sheraton Parking: Please enter the parking deck on Gale Street.
Sheraton and Marriott Internet: Both hotels offer Internet included in your rate. Ask the front desk if you have questions.
Thursday check in: If you are driving in Thursday morning, see advice above. Given the high occupancy rate at the hotels, early check-in or late check out will not be available.
Friday check out: While our conference does not conclude until 2:30 or so on Friday, please remember that hotel check out time is noon. The Sheraton, Marriott and Clarion (overflow) have all graciously agreed to work with guests to store guest luggage after check out.
Cruise Raleigh: While you're in Raleigh, don't forget to take advantage of the free, user-friendly R Line bus to visit the area restaurants and nightspots. For more info: http://www.ncties.org/conference/raleigh/index.html
