Lodging Options


The most convenient lodging option is at the Hilton Garden Inn (2500 SW Western Blvd, Corvallis; Phone: 541-752-5000), which is directly across the street from the meeting site (the LaSells Stewart Center). This is a very good hotel, and staying here will avoid the hassle of purchasing a campus parking permit. Also, if anyone is flying via PDX, Hut Portland Airport Shuttle (http://www.hutshuttle.com) stops directly at the Hilton Garden Inn. The Hilton Garden Inn has a negotiated rate of $109 per night plus tax for OSU-associated activities. You will need to request the "OSU negotiated rate" when you make your reservation.


There is not a block of rooms set aside, but the OSU negotiated rate should stay in effect for as long as they have vacancies available. Calling as early as possible is strongly advised.


Other Corvallis hotels that have received positive comments include the newly renovated Best Western and the Holiday Inn Express (downtown, adjacent to the Willamette River).
