Unfortunately, the CCWR rooms set aside at the Embassy Suites Hotel by Hilton in San Luis Obispo are all taken. We have already bumped up the number of rooms from the initial contract and the hotel is not willing to add more rooms to the block.
One of the more complicated aspects of planning this event each year is estimating how many rooms to reserve. If we book too many, CCWR has to pay for the unused rooms out of pocket; too few, and our members have to pay more or seek accommodations elsewhere. We appear to have more people attending than we’d anticipated, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
There are a number of hotels in the area. You can use this link to find hotels near the symposium that might have availability. There are also vacation rentals available, if a group of people want to rent together. See VRBO or AIRBNB. We will also be putting out a call for those who might want to share their room and/or carpool.
Alternate housing arrangements are being discussed on the Gaggle email group. If you are not a member and want to be added, I can add you to the list (just email me at email@example.com).
