REMINDER: Deadline for hotel reservations approaching


As a reminder, a block of rooms has been reserved for NASPH as “Boston College Philosophy” at:
Courtyard by Marriott, Brookline
40 Webster Street
Brookline, MA 02446
Reservation phone: 866-296-2296
Hotel phone: 617-734-1393
Hotel Fax: 617-734-1392
Mention “Boston College Philosophy” for special rate of $175/night
Deadline for special rate: August 23
The conference organizers wish to emphasize that, after the reservation deadline of August 23, the block of rooms will be released to the general public. Since the meeting is taking place on a football weekend, it is likely that the hotel is already turning people away from our block of rooms. These rooms will therefore go rather quickly after the 23rd, and the rate will be much higher as well. In addition, it will be very difficult to find alternate hotel accommodations near Boston College for the meeting after that date, not only because of the football game but also because it is the beginning of the school year for many colleges and universities in the Boston area, and parents who bring their sons and daughters to school will be taking up hotel space as well.

We therefore urge everyone who plans to attend the conference to make their travel plans as soon as possible.
