Accomodations in Iowa City

Below is a guide to accomodations in the Iowa City/Coralville area. The first four listings will likely be the most convenient to the downtown area, as well as the conference. A block of rooms at a special rate has been set aside at the Iowa House, so please mention that you are with the conference if booking there. The Sheraton and Hotel Vetro are centrally located in the heart of down-town and very close to the conference venue. The Hotel Vetro is a very luxurious hotel, that is reasonably priced for the level of accommodations. The subsequent listings below are other viable options that are not located in the downtown area, and therefore may be less expensive. However, transportation to and from these places might prove less than convenient.


Iowa House

Located in the University of Iowa's Memorial Union, the Iowa House is conveniently located directly on campus. It offers reasonable rates, free wireless internet access, complimentary parking, complimentary breakfast, and access to on-campus exercise facilities.
