Note, the Westin offers a group booking rate of $209 per night. However, the registration site quotes the rate as $234 per night, due to an additional $25 “destination fee”. The Westin has assured us that they will not charge this fee for bookings in the ICFP block, and their registration link includes such an assurance at the top. Meanwhile, they are working to revise their registration site to reflect the negotiated $209 rate. However, once you add taxes, the rate comes out to around $255 per night.
You can find travel information about the airport (and other travel options) and how to reach the hotel from there.
Please book your hotel stay at the Westin Seattle. The Westin is at the center of the conference activity and will allow you to network easily with other conference attendees. Also, it’s a quick trip to get to the program and functions, and just as quick to nip back to your room for a break. Staying at the conference hotel will provide a better conference experience!
Everyone enjoys meeting in a comfortable conference venue, offering quality service and support for workshops, tutorials, plenary sessions, and other activities. As the transaction for those services and support, the conference guarantees that a percentage of attendees will stay in the hotel. The contract with the hotel then guarantees a specific number of sleeping rooms will be used each night during the conference. If the conference does not meet the contracted sleeping room commitment, the hotel gets paid anyway. Those unfilled rooms will cost the conference thousands of dollars.
Please support ICFP and SIGPLAN by staying at the Westin!
