Lately there has been a bit of buzz from people who are planning to come to the symposium but don't live in the Denver area. I thought they might like some information on area hotels.
The presenters are being put up at the DIA Hyatt, 16250 East 40th Avenue 80011. It is about 5 miles nearly directly north of the Community College of Aurora. We did not reserve a block of rooms for out of town guests as this was not an issue last year. I guess as we grow this is something we may need to look into in future years. There are quite a few other chain hotels right there as this is a main area for airport travelers to stay, the airport isn't close enough that jets will keep you awake, nothing is near the airport. There are also some cheaper chain options closer to the college.
There is a La Quinta (1011 S Abilene St), Best Western (800 S Abilene St) and Holiday Inn Express (1500 S Abilene St) all about 3 miles to the southwest of the college. If you do a google search for hotels in the 80011 zip code you will many others. There are quite a few chain hotels along I-225 just west of the college and many others near I-70 north of the college as you will then be close to the airport.
