Parking Options for the Upcoming FTU in DC

By  | 

A tip for those driving in for the Frequent Traveler University at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in December: if you don’t need in/out privileges, there are much cheaper parking options than the hotel rate of $27 a day!

Crystal City has a handy map outlining the location of various parking lots.

Free Parking — There are a few lots that offer free parking after 4PM on Friday and all day during the weekend. They’re about a 7 minute walk to the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.

Street Parking — is all metered, and very limited. Free after 9PM on Friday and Saturday and all day Sunday.

Discounted Garage Parking — this is what I will be using! Parking Panda (the hotwire of parking) offers an option at 2600 Crystal Drive which is adjacent to the Hyatt Regency and allows for overnight parking. To park for the weekend without moving your car is only $19. To park for the day is only $6. For more on Parking Panda, read my recent review.

New to Parking Panda? Sign up using my referral link and we’ll both get $5 in credit!

And stack the sign up bonus with the current Groupon offer $12 for $25 in parking credit, $20 for $40 in credit.

Tip: to look for parking, don’t enter “Hyatt Regency Crystal City” it will only show you spaces miles away. Enter 2600 Crystal Drive to see all available options.
