**NOTE: We just found out that the conference has ten rooms reserved for Friday and Saturday, Sept 9 and 10 at the Hanover Inn, which is across the street from campus and newly upgraded. The conference rate for these rooms is $172 per night, pricey because this is a prime weekend. The conference rate ends on August 8, but you must reserve these through the conference administrator to get the conference rate. If you would like one of these rooms, please call Kelly Palmer at 603 646-3378 ot email her at email@example.com. Check out the Inn’s website: www.hanoverinn.com/ .
We have reserved a bloc of rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, 10 Morgan Drive, Lebanon, NH 03766, tel. 603 643-1578. It is a 7 minute drive to Hanover and the Dartmouth campus and there will be shuttle buses during the conference. The conference rate is $169 for single rooms with king beds, a high rate because this is a weekend during leaf-peeping season and is the weekend before classes begin on September 12, so rooms are in high demand. You must book by August 9 to get this group rate. There are several b&b and air b&b options in Hanover, NH and Norwich, VT (a 30 minute walk across the river), which you could explore as well. For a comprehensive list, please consult http://alumni.dartmouth.edu/visitingcampus/UpperValleyLodging.
There are several options for your travel to Hanover. There are 3 local airports: Boston Logan, MA; Manchester, NH; or Lebanon, NH. From Boston Logan, you can take the Dartmouth Coach, which offers frequent, comfortable, and convenient express bus (3 hours) service to Hanover, and drops you at the Hanover Inn, across from campus. There is also a twice-daily Dartmouth Coach service to and from New York City (http://www.dartmouthcoach.com/). You can fly into Manchester, NH, rent a car and drive (1.5 hours from Hanover on highways, fairly straightforward) and the foliage should be beautiful. The Lebanon, NH airport is very small with limited service to and from Boston Logan and New York City, and is a short 15 minute ride from Hanover. For more information on travel, dining, parking on campus, and maps consult http://alumni.dartmouth.edu/visitingcampus.
