We have arranged rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn at a reduced rate of $89 per night + tax. Breakfast is not included, but you can purchase breakfast at the restaurant, and each room has a refrigerator and microwave. It also has a heated outdoor pool that may well be useful in January. If you want to get this reduced rate, you need to book by December 5.
Please use the link Hilton Garden Inn Reservations to reserve rooms at this rate.
There are also a number of other hotels within a couple minute walk of the Hilton Garden, the Sleep Inn at 2121 Triviz Drive, www.sleepinn.com. It is a bit less expensive than the Hilton (usually around $70 per night) and with fewer services (no restaurant), but is fine. Here is a Google map of the area near the Hilton Garden Inn.
A budget choice is Value Place, www.valueplace.com. Rooms are charged weekly, but starting at $180 + tax for the week. The location is not far from the others, and a 15 minute walk to the conference site.
There are about half a dozen or more other choices of hotels within an easy walk of the campus. These can easily be found on the web.
