Lodging & Travel

Park Place Hotel

The Park Place Hotel serves as the conference venue and is conveniently located downtown.  This iconic hotel sells out early (e.g., by the end of August).  We do offer additional lodging options with discounted group rates, which are listed below. Because Traverse City is a a vacation destination and October is peak color season, hotel rates are driven by the local market.  Please secure your registration, housing, and airfare as soon as possible. We encourage you to consider the overflow lodging we have list but do feel free to search the web for options that best fit your travel needs.
