Conference Hotel Information and Rate

We have two conference hotels: the lovely, new, full service Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Bellingham (about a 15 minute drive from the Western Washington University conference site) and the full-service Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham, a thirty-minute walk from the conference registration desk at Western Washington University (516 High St., Bellingham, WA 98225). The Four Points appears to be sold out for most nights, but you can double-check just in case.

The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Bellingham is a lovely full-service, three-star hotel, with a full-service restaurant, a heated indoor pool, free wifi, free parking, a fitness center, and a business center.

The Holiday Inn is just minutes from the Bellingham Airport (arrange for a pickup by the Holiday Inn shuttle ahead of time, or walk the seven minutes to the hotel yourself—the Bellair Shuttle from SeaTac drops off at the Bellingham Airport, just across the street from the Holiday Inn), and just a brief 15 to 20 minute car ride to Western Washington University (PAMLA will provide a free shuttle–if you reserve at the Holiday Inn and would like to make use of the PAMLA shuttle to the conference site at Western Washington University, please email PAMLA Executive Director Craig Svonkin at [email protected]).
