Getting to the Convention

Queen City Anime Convention will be hosted at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel in gorgeous Second Ward, Charlotte NC. It’s never been easier to get to Queen City Anime Convention and around the city.

Parking at the Sheraton

The Sheraton Charlotte Hotel is attached to a multi-level covered parking deck.

Day parking will be $5/day for attendees.

Overnight parking will be $10/day for attendees

Day parking is valid until midnight on the day it is purchased.

If an attendee leaves the parking deck after midnight they will be charged an additional $5 and their parking will be valid until midnight of the next day. There are no additional fees for leaving the parking deck and coming back.

Example: Miranda arrives at the convention at 10AM on Friday and leaves at 2AM, she will be charged $10. Miranda can come back on Saturday morning and her parking is still valid until midnight.
