Driving in Seattle can be slow and parking downtown (at the hotel) can be challenging; if you choose to use your own transportation we suggest obtaining directions from a source such as googlemaps.com using Crowne Plaza, 1113 6th Avenue, Seattle, WA
The hotel is situated on the corner of two one-way roads: 6th Avenue, which runs NW, and Seneca Street, which runs SW. The hotel has a parking garage that is first-come, first-serve for CANS attendees not staying in the hotel; in before 9am results in a less expensive rate. The parking attendant is accessed just under the marquee of flags on your left immediately after turning left from 6th to Seneca. If the Crowne Plaza lot is full, you might find space in the Olympic Garage which is on 5th and Seneca. Take a left onto 5th and take an immediate right into the garage.
Note that parking for overnight hotel guests is at a reduced rate during the CANS conference.
