SEJ's 20th Annual Conference Lodging and Transportation

SEJ's 20th Annual Conference
Missoula, Montana
October 13-17, 2010

 

 

GETTING AROUND MISSOULA: Walking directions, public transit, and shuttle schedule posted.

 

SEJ MEMBERS:
Find a roommate or arrange carpooling. (You'll need your login information.)

This year, three  downtown hotels have room blocks set aside for Annual Conference attendees, but they're mostly full at this point. Please check them  first, though--cancellations DO happen!

There are many smaller hotels and motels in Missoula. If you need to stay in a "spillover" hotel or motel, you'll need to find a way to get to campus or to one of the conference hotels to pick up a shuttle. Most are in the downtown area, and easy walking distance to a conference hotel.

Missoula, MT. 59802

SEJ's Primary Conference Hotel, Holiday Inn Downtown at the Park, is FULL! There is still room at the Doubletree below, or the Holiday Inn Express (ablove) -- or call the primary hotel to see if cancellations have opened up space. The hotel is located near the north bank of the Clark Fork River. The hotel is close to a host of Missoula’s dining and drinking establishments. Shuttles will run from the hotel to the University Center, but attendees should know that they can also reach campus via a 15-minute walk along the Riverfront Trail.
