The Edgewater has changed their parking permit process. The parking passes are no longer included in the lodging rates. Each vehicle will have to pay $11.32 for a permit. You can do this in one of two ways:
You will be charged for one parking pass for every room you reserve. If you need extra, you will need to purchase them from the Edgewater. If you need fewer than one per room (e.g. if your group came down in a charter bus), then you can ask for a refund from the Edgewater for every unneeded parking pass.
