The Hilton is located in Downtown Baton Rouge, so parking is a challenge.


There is valet parking at the hotel-it is $22/night. For this option, we would highly suggest carpooling with a few other crewmembers and splitting the costs. Advantage is that it is VERY convenient, and off the street.

City Parking Lot

Around the corner from the hotel, there is a city parking lot with public parking. The self-parking lots have 250 parking spaces, which range from $7.00 to $10/day.

Regardless of what option you select, we recommend dropping your luggage off first with one of our badged volunteers who will be happy to watch it until you return.

Option 1: Walking is an approximate 1/2 mile walk, through some very pretty areas of downtown (Old State Capital, Manship Theater, Louisiana Art & Science Museum) and takes about 10- 15 minutes to get to the hotel. We can provide you a map with highlights on  your walking tour of downtown Baton Rouge.

Option 2: Shuttlepod! We will have shuttlecraft standing by to assist. What we recommend is dropping off your suitcases and proceed to the garage. Someone will follow you, then pick you up to bring you back to the hotel. We will have this service available during Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon. (exact hours TBD). Closer to Summit time, we will have a sign-up form for you to fill out, so we know when to expect you.
