Events will be taking place at the Hotel Murano

Discounted rooms no longer available at the Hotel Murano

Roommates:  If you are interested in sharing a room with someone (either you have a room or need a room), please send an email to, subject: Roommate wanted. Please specify if you have a room or need a room, and we will pass along your information to others who want to share!

In addition, parking costs have been discounted:

$12 per day for Hotel Murano overnight guests

$16 for non-guests

Thursday night only -- there are rooms also available at the Courtyard Marriott - $179 per night

Unfortunately, our host hotel, Hotel Murano, is currently sold out of WADE conference fee rooms for Thursday April 25th. In order to meet higher demand for rooms than anticipated, we are pleased to announce that we have a reserved block of rooms available just 2 blocks away at the Courtyard Marriott for $179/night. We understand that there will be a desire to transfer to Hotel Murano early Friday morning, or during break or lunch - we are working on a way to make this easy!  Please remember to book each hotel separately to ensure rooms are reserved. REGISTER HERE.
Complimentary valet service of luggage for conference participants only from Courtyard Marriott on Friday morning to Hotel Murano will be provided. You must register at the front desk of Courtyard and bring your luggage to their front desk before 10am Friday April 26th. Your luggage will be brought to luggage storage at Hotel Murano and your room will be one of the earliest released for early check-in. Be sure to check in at Murano front desk. 

If you would like to try to find a roommate to share a room, please post on WADEpage Facebook Event page, and/or send email to
