Gaylord Parking Garage & Lot

MAGFest has a rate of $18 per day for MAGFest attendees. The rate will be adjusted if you are staying at the hotel and let them know you are parking. If you are driving in/out each day, you can purchase the discounted parking ticket at the parking desk set up in the coat check underneath the escalators leading to the expo hall. You have in/out privileges if you are staying at the Gaylord but your SPACE WILL NOT BE RESERVED AND IF YOU LEAVE, THE LOT MAY FILL UP.

National Harbor Parking Garages

There are three parking lots in National Harbor, and all have a maximum day rate of $20 per day. They are located as follows:

  • Fleet Garage – as you come into National Harbor, turn right onto Fleet Street and then right again into the Garage entrance.
  • Mariner Garage – as you come into National Harbor, turn right onto Fleet Street, right onto Mariner Passage and then left into the Garage entrance (it is behind the Marriott Residence Inn)
  • St. George Garage – as you come into National Harbor, turn right onto Fleet Street, left onto Waterman Passage and then left into the Garage entrance. This is the parking lot closest to the Gaylord and Hampton Inn.

These lots DO NOT have in/out privileges.

Reserved Parking

If reserved are sold out, but there are many more un-reserved spots in the garages listed above.

You can use National Harbor's parking reservation system to reserve parking in advance in two designated locations. Note that you have to add each day to your cart individually. Admittedly a pain, but their system isn't typically used for multiday events.

Plateau Lot – across the street from the Hampton Inn and the Gaylord Parking lot. $18.70 per day inclusive of all taxes and feels.

South Pointe Lot – open lot behind the Gaylord (if you park here, you will need to walk along the river a very short distance to get to a door to enter the Gaylord). $13.20 per day inclusive of all taxes and fees.

Reserved parking allows in/out privileges. Ensure that you have your parking pass clearly displayed on your dash while parked.
