Participants are advised to make their hotel reservations early, as September is a busy month in Seattle. The weekends of 6th & 13th Sept 2008 are especially busy because there are American football games at the local UW Husky Football Stadium, which usually draw many out-of-town visitors.

Please contact Annie Wong ( if you have trouble making your hotel reservation.


The easiest way to get from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to the University of Washington and any of the hotels listed above is to take a shuttle (approximately USD$21 + tips) or taxi (approximately USD$40 + tips) from the airport.
