There are a variety of discounted prices for children of various ages, but it is best to contact the hotel to determine lodging possibilities and pricing that will apply to your family situation.


The hotel is very busy in high season, so it is important to reserve early. When ready to reserve, send me an email indicating you are about to do so, and I will respond with a conference password (please keep this private). Then book by calling the hotel at the number below and make reservations with the provided password--they will ask for the appropriate deposit. You can also email the hotel and use the password to make reservations, but I would not recommend putting credit card information in the email. Instead, you can send a deposit by bank transfer to:
