Transportation and Parking
You like us... you really like us!
Thanks to you, Fur the More has grown into a convention of medium size. Unfortunately, this also necessitated moving the event into a larger space. Larger spaces come with new challenges which include parking in a region where parking is a premium. As a smaller event, we were able to be at small hotels that controlled their own parking which allowed us to negotiate complimentary parking. As a larger event, this luxury is not available to us anymore unless we move into an area where a lack of public transit means every attendee would have to drive 2-4 hours to get to us from a major metro region.
We are continuing to try and work with the local parking companies to secure a deal for our attendees. In the meantime, we have options for utilizing the hotel shuttle, hotel parking, and limited complimentary parking in the area around the hotel. We hope this guide helps you with joining us for a great weekend of Furs, Friends, and Fun!
Getting to the Hotel by shuttle
You can now track our Hyatt shuttle for pick-up simply by downloading the link below when you arrive. Our shuttle service will provide you estimated times to and from the airport. When opening the link be sure to use HOTEL CODE: 2799
Enjoy our courtesy Hyatt Airport Shuttle to and from Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA).
We depart from the hotel front drive every 20-minute on the hour from 4:40am - 12:40am seven days a week.
Enjoy our courtesy Hyatt Metro Shuttle to and from Crystal City Metro Station. We depart from the hotel front drive every 30-minutes on the hour from 6:00am - midnight Monday thru Friday, and 7:00am - midnight Saturday and Sunday. (Times subject to change)
Upon request, the shuttle will drop guests off and pick up at Crystal Drive & 23rd Street near multiple local offices and restaurants and at 23rd Street and S. Eads Street near the local restaurants. These stops are based on request only and are not regular stops made during regular travel (Subject to change).
When traveling to the hotel via Metro, once you are at the top of the escalators turn to the left and walk toward 18th St. the shuttle will pick up underneath the overpass at the Hotel Shuttle Sign.

If you plan to drive to the convention, we have several parking options available. However, if you are not parking in the hotel valet, then we recommend you arrive to the hotel; unload your stuff and friends, and then proceed to your chosen parking destination.
Fur the 'More is continuing to work with the local parking companies to try and set up a parking deal at adjacent parking areas for our attendees coming to have fun with us.
Hyatt Valet Parking
Our host hotel has a valet only parking service. Fur the More was able to secure a discount for this service of $10 off the prevailing rate. As of 01/20/2020 the prevailing rate was $45/day. Showing your attendance badge would then reduce that to $35/day.
Complimentary Parking options
Some of the local parking garages do have complimentary parking available in the following times:
Weekdays (Mon - Fri): 4pm - 6am
Weekends/Holidays: All day
Utilizing the "complimentary" parking garages will (to our understanding) only incur a parking cost for the hours outside of the complimentary period. Most of these garages are run by PMI who lists their rates as follows:
1 Hour Rate: $6.00, 2 Hour Rate: $11.00, 24 Hour Rate: $21.00
So for example:
If you parking at 2pm on Friday afternoon, and leave before 6am Monday, your anticipated parking cost would be $11.
If you arrive Thursday evening and park after 4pm, and depart before 6am Monday; your anticipated parking cost would be $21 (for the whole day Friday).
