Housing Reservations and Transportation
Housing accommodations for the meeting are available at 3 nearby hotels and a less expensive student residence facility (see the hotel/meeting site map for locations). Special reduced rates are available at the three hotels. However, the number of rooms available at these rates is limited, and they are only offered through the Housing Reservations-GMCVA website. You cannot obtain these rates by booking directly with the hotels or through other internet sites.
