Local Information


The primary conference hotel is The Doubletree Inn at the Colonnade, across the street from meeting location. All rooms in our room block have sold out.

Rooms are still available at the alternate hotel, the Radisson at Cross Keys, located two miles north of the meeting location. A shuttle will run from the hotel to the meeting each morning, and back each afternoon. A discounted rate of $119 per night is available by calling the hotel's reservations desk at 1-800-967-9033. Ask for the "Hopkins" rate.

Room Share List

We have created a room share list on the SDSS-III wiki. Please edit the page to add your name to either the "have a room" or "looking for a room" lists. Once you find a roommate, please cross your name off the list. If you have a room, be sure to specify whether it is at the Colonnade (Doubletree) or Cross Keys (Radisson).
