 Information on Parking.
  1. Parking in the Kahler Ramp will be discounted for the VFW/VFW Auxiliary to $8.65 per day, inclusive of tax. Regular is $16 per day plus tax.
  2. Check into your room BEFORE parking. You will then be assured of the discounted parking rate and will be buzzed into the parking ramp.
  3. You may go in and out of the ramp as many times as you wish during your stay as a guest.
  4. If you are assigned a room on Floors 1 through 5 at the Kahler, there will be access directly from the parking ramp and you will need your room key to get in those doors. This will make for ease of getting your belongings to your room. If you are assigned a room on Floor 2, you can possibly park on Level 2 of the parking ramp to facilitate this.
  5. There will be Bellman available to get your belongings to your room as well. If you park in front at the Kahler when you arrive to check in, once you have your room assignment, if it doesn’t work out to be on Floors 1 through 5, you can leave your luggage, etc. with the Bellman and have it delivered to your room while you go and park.
  6. Overflow parking if needed is available at the Center Street Ramp about half a block from the Kahler Ramp.
  7. DO NOT park at the MAYO Ramps – even though they say they are free on the weekends, if you are parked overnight, you will be charged $25.
  8. Please be aware that the Kahler Hotel rooms have been remodeled and are larger.
