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 (Web ID 4216, password: 37005335) or telephone (1-800-222-0418, Group code: 4216).
