There are numerous lodging options in the city of Boston within walking distance of the Leventhal Map Center, restaurants and cafes, and other amenities, though prices can be expensive during the summer tourist season.
In order to ensure national workshop participants have access to affordable lodging, the project directors have negotiated a group rate at the Holiday Inn Brookline for $179/night + taxes (11.7%) for Sunday, July 9 through Saturday, July 15. The hotel is a 15-20 minute T ride away from the Leventhal Map Center. An additional block of rooms has also been reserved at the Midtown Hotel for $159/night + taxes (14.45%) however the discounted rate is only available for Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 14 and availability of rooms on Sunday night July 9 and Friday night July 14 is limited.
The project directors will advise workshop participants about hotel reservations and AirBnB options and connect those interested in room sharing.
