Accomodation

Hotels in New York City are expensive and fill up quickly. We recommend making your reservations as soon as possible! Members of the organizing committee have negotiated a limited number of discounted rooms at the following hotels:

 

(1) The hotel that is nearest to the conference site is the Washington Square Hotel, where we have been able to reserve 30 rooms (varying in size, quality, and price from $280-325 per night). Because of the location, these rooms always fill up quickly, so book early by internet www.wshotel.com (Web ID 4216, password: 37005335) or telephone (1-800-222-0418, Group code: 4216). Hotel contact person: Keiko Mukai (kmukai@wshotel.com).

 

(2) For those who do not mind a short subway or taxi ride between NYU and lower Manhattan, an affordable and desirable option is the Doubletree Hotel (by Hilton) in the Financial District (near Battery Park, see http://doubletree3.hilton.com/en/hotels/new-york/doubletree-by-hilton-hotel-new-york-city-financial-district-NYCBPDT/index.html). We have been able to reserve 50 single rooms with a King Bed ($199/night) and 30 double rooms with two Double Beds ($239/night); these prices are guaranteed until May 4, 2014. Please call 1-800-Hiltons and refer to either “New York University” or “NYU” to receive the discounted rates. Hotel contact persons: Kathyann Falzon (Kathyann.Falzon@Hilton.com), Janiris Infante (janiris.infante@hilton.com).

 

(3) For those who prefer a luxury option that is walking distance from NYU, we would recommend the Soho Grand, where we have been able to reserve 40 rooms with a Queen bed for $369/night (guaranteed until May 20, 2014).
