There are two other hotels that are walking distance to the IMU - which are
about a 10 minute walk (hilton) - 13 min walk (courtyard).
Hilton Garden Inn -
(This hotel has a 95 dollar government rate with free Internet and if it was
an official hotel - could guarantee say a 50-100 block of rooms - I think
we could do better than that).
Courtyard Bloomington -
hotel has 89 government rate with free Internet).
In addition to these there are many other hotel options that would be
feasible if you had a car (were willing to walk 20 mins) or could use
Bloomington public transportation including a couple of bed and breakfasts
that are walking distance (less than 5 minutes) from the IMU.
We realize we will need at least one more block of rooms outside of the
union to make this work and will work this out if Bloomington is chosen.
Does anyone know how many rooms were needed in past events?
