Accommodations

The SLA has reserved a block of rooms at the Embassy Suites in downtown Boulder, which together with the Hilton Garden Inn forms The Hiltons on Canyon complex. If you would like to book a room in the conference block (with breakfast included, 2-room suites available upon request) but did not do so previously, you may book a room for a reduced rate at our Special Reservations link by March 8, 2022. Please visit our roommate finder padlet to connect with others looking to share. The number of rooms in the conference block is limited, so we encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible. Should you find that you cannot attend the conference, you may cancel your hotel reservations for a full refund up until a week before arrival in Boulder. You may check on the status of any previously made reservations at 1-303-443-2600 (please hold main line without pushing other numbers to speak to a local agent).

Guests at the Hilton Garden Inn can enjoy beautifully designed modern guestrooms with one king or two queen beds, and have access to the same amenities provided at the Embassy Suites, including access to two bars, fitness room, and heated roof-top pool. Rooms are $189 per night. This price does not include complimentary breakfast.
To enjoy the SLA 2020 special discounted room rate, please make your reservations at the Booking Link

Should you have any problems securing the discounted rate, please contact the conference organizers at slaboulder@gmail.com immediately so that we can add more rooms to the block.
