Follow signs to your apartment. Using the 4-digit Apartment Access Code, enter the code on the keypad above the door handle to enter. 

Step 7Locate the parking card and validation sticker within the binder on the kitchen
Once in your apartment, there will be a welcome binder with a building access card, a parking pass and 1 validation sticker. Locate your Parking Pass - you will use this to enter and exit the parking garage.

At checkout, leave the building access card and parking card in the apartment and affix your validation sticker to your original parking ticket to exit the garage, so you don't have to pay garage rates. 



We hope you've had a great stay! Leave your parking and building access cards in the apartment and take your ORIGINAL garage ticket with the validation sticker affixed to it. When exiting the garage, insert the ticket into the machine to leave without paying garage fees. If the machine does not take the ticket, press the button to call for an attendant. Alert them that you have a validation sticker and you're with Locale. They will reset it and open the gate for you. Please do not pay garage rate; call for assistance.

Should you need to bring luggage down and come back to the apartment, you can always use the Building Access Code that you entered to use the elevator when you arrived! 

  • Lost or unreturned parking passes and access cards result in a $50 replacement fee per item

  • Only one car can use the pass / reduced rate per unit

  • If you can not exit or enter with the parking pass, please use the call box to notify the attendant the parking pass is out of sync. They will reset it for you!
