Lodging: The talks will be held at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach,
http://www.wyndhamdeerfieldresort.com/, literally across a narrow street
from the beach. Conference attendees are offered rooms at the special rate
of $189/night for oceanfront, $159/night for city view, subject to
availability, up to Dec. 12. For this beachfront property in season, take my
word for it that this is a good deal. Reservations toll free 24 hours at
(800) 426-0084; mention MAMLS to get the special rate. Alternatively, you
could stay at the Comfort Inn Oceanside, http://comfortinnoceanside.com/,
just a few blocks away, for prices ranging from $119.95 to $149.95/night,
subject to availability, up to Dec. 11. For reservations, call toll free
866-86-OCEAN and mention MAMLS to get the special rate. If you would like to
save even more by rooming with somebody, drop me a line at
Lubarsky.Robert at comcast.net and I will act as a clearinghouse for such
requests. Please remember, this is in season, so I encourage you to do this
at your earliest convenience. This is especially important if you want to
make a vacation out of this and come early or stay late (remember, M Jan 16
is MLK Day), as space at the special rate is limited.
Transportation: Transportation information is at the hotel websites. The
closest airports are, in order of increasing distance from the hotel, Ft.
Lauderdale/Hollywood, Palm Beach, and Miami. From any of those airports, you
could take the shuttle, a cab, or the train (http://www.tri-rail.com/) to
the Deerfield Beach station and a cab from there.
