Conference Hotels

We have reserved blocks of rooms at three hotels. When you call to reserve, tell them you are with the Association of Internet Researchers to get the conference rate. You will have to contact the hotels directly to reserve a room. They are:

Eldridge Hotel
We have 44 of 48 Rooms
701 Massachusetts
785-749-5011/ 800-527-0909
Room Rate: $80/night
Contact: Ginger Ray
Note: This is the historic downtown hotel. It is an ideal location for shopping, eating, and strolling, but they have fewer rooms. It is about a half hour walk to campus.

These other two hotels are very close to one another. The Ramada Inn has a restaurant. The Hampton doesn't. Like all the Lawrence hotels other than the Eldridge, these are a very short drive or about a half hour walk to downtown and campus:

Hampton Inn
We have 74 of 89 Rooms
2300 W. 6th St.
785- 841-4994/ 800-426-7866

6th & Iowa

Local Transportation

Shuttle buses will run between the above hotels and the Kansas Union beginning at 7:30 a.m. September 14. The hotel front desk will have shuttle schedules. If you plan to park a car on campus during the conference, please e-mail by August 14, 2000 to request a parking permit. It is recommended that you utilize the shuttle buses, as the University is in session and it can be difficult to find parking spaces at certain times. (this will be especially true on Saturday as there is a home football game).

Currency Exchange

We recommend that you complete currency transactions before you arrive in Lawrence.

Transportation from and to KCI Airport

The following services provide transport to and from the airport. Shuttle reservations must be made 24 hours in advance. 1. Superior Shuttle (toll free: 888-795-3914) 2. Lawrence Bus Co. (toll free: 877-942-0544)
