Accommodation or home stay

If you are coming in from out of town, please contact me. If you prefer we might be able to set you up in a Seattle member's home for the weekend.

If you prefer a hotel, currently I am recommending the Hotel Deca:

I am working to secure a group discount rate at this hotel, but it is not guaranteed. But this is close to the venue, decently affordable and nice. There are cheaper rooms closer, but not as nice.
