Booking Hotel Accommodations
A block of 50 group-rate double queen (two beds) and king rooms (one king-size bed) rooms has been reserved for conference guests at The Phoenix Inn, 850 Franklin Boulevard, Eugene, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. +1-800-344-0131. The Phoenix Inn is located at the edge of campus and within easy walking distance to the conference venues. Both types of rooms are available at $109 per night from Thursday night, September 27, with check-out on Sunday, September 30. The room rate includes breakfast, wifi, free parking, and an indoor heated pool and spa. When making a reservation, state that you are with the “Slavic Conference” at UO, in order to receive the group rate. (Reservations can also be made at the hotel website at https:/phoenixinn.com/eugene/, but there is no option there to reserve at the conference rate.) **Because the number of reserved rooms is limited, make sure to book early in order to receive the conference rate.**
**NOTE: If you choose to book lodgings with AirB&B instead of a hotel, keep in mind that local transportation to and from the conference site may be onerous. Uber, Lyft, and other such driver services are currently illegal in Eugene, and there is limited bus service. Taxi fares are high, and parking on campus is limited.
Transportation to Eugene
There are flights to the Eugene Airport with United Airlines from San Francisco and Denver; Delta from Seattle and Salt Lake City; Alaska from Portland and Seattle; and Allegiant from Los Angeles and Phoenix.
*If you are flying from another country, give EUG as the final airport destination for your check-in luggage. Make sure to pick up your check-in luggage at the first airport you arrive at in the US, go through customs, and recheck the luggage to Eugene on the other side of the customs area.
