A small block of rooms are available at the Atlantic Sands Hotel.

The hotel cannot guarantee a specific room type, but they will note your request.
If you are not staying at the hotel and would like to reserve a parking space in the lot adjacent to the hotel for Friday and/or Saturday, please contact DTLA at (302) 421-2801 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost per space is $25 per day. The number of spaces available are limited so please respond quickly. Parking is sold out on both Friday and Saturday.
The alternative to parking at the hotel is to park on the street. The two streets that border the hotel are Baltimore Avenue and Maryland Avenue. Meters on Baltimore Ave need to be fed every 3 hours, and the meters on Maryland Ave need to be fed every 12 hours. All meters on those streets are $1.50 per hour. Credit cards are no longer accepted at any parking meters so you'll either need change or use the option described in the next paragraph.
