La Quinta Inn and Suites
Tel: Group Reservations: (360) 566-1100.
We have reserved a block of rooms at a discretionary rate of $79 (single/double) for the duration of the workshop (checking in Wednesday July 25 and checking out Saturday July 28). This hotel is located close to campus for ease of shuttling backwards and forwards.
Please call the above number and ask for La Quinta Inn and Suites Vancouver, group number 355. State your arrival and departure dates, the kind of room you will require (single or double) and smoking preference. Make your reservation by 6/25/2012.
If you want to stay on for vacation time, or would like to visit Portland during any free time, you are advised to hire a car at the airport. Public transportation runs into Vancouver and Portland from the park-and-ride just a few minutes walk from the hotel, but it does not run very frequently, and doesn’t run at all at weekends.
If you are traveling to the workshop by air, be sure to start looking into flight reservations as soon as possible. Please look for flights that arrive in Portland by or before the afternoon of Wednesday July 25th, and depart around mid-afternoon or later on Saturday July 28th. Of course you are free to arrive sooner and depart later if you wish. The nearest airport to Vancouver, Washington is Portland, Oregon (PDX). From Portland, you can hire a car and drive to WSU Vancouver, or we can arrange to pick you up, with sufficient advance notice. There may be more flight options, at better rates, in and out of Seattle/Tacoma airport. The airport is approximately two and a half hours drive from Vancouver, and you would need to look into a shuttle service to convey you to our venue.
If you are unable to cover the cost of a flight at this time, please let us know as soon as you can and we’ll see what we can do to help you.
