Hilton Harrisburg Parking
Overnight guests will receive a parking ticket for unlimited in/out privileges at the Walnut Street Parking Garage through the extent of their stay. All day self-parkers can get parking tickets validated at the Hilton's gift shop or front desk for $5 (Walnut Street Garage only). This will cover a maximum of 10 hours in the garage. No exits and re-entries permitted. The 10 hours starts as soon as you pull your ticket from the garage kiosk. After the 10 hours, there are two options:

  • Leave the garage and re-enter to get a new ticket for a total of $10 (two $5 validations) for the day.
  • Stay in the garage and pay the difference. For rates, go to https://parkharrisburg.com/rates/.

Note: In order to receive the discounted 10-hour rate of $5, you must have your ticket validated at the Hilton. If you use a parking garage kiosk to pay, you will NOT receive the discounted rate.
