Accommodations

The host hotel for the colloquium is the Courtyard Marriott Downtown Orlando.
There are a few other downtown hotels within walking distance.  Unless you are the “adventurous” type we would not recommend the Travelodge.  We also suggest you avoid motels along West Colonial Drive (SR 50) (except the Crowne Plaza) and along South Orange Blossom Trail (US 441).

Meals
There are a few restaurants within a 15-minute walk of the Courtyard Marriott; many more within biking distance.  We will give you a longer lunch break both to reach some of these locations and to give more socializing time.

  1. Hi there, any plans for a webcast? 🙂 Here in Lisboa, Portugal, a couple of people would LOVE to be able to participate, even if in a limited way.

  2. Yes, we are working on that.

  3. I checked “Rent a bike” and I see link for Kyle’s Bike Shop but do not see how to arrange rental. How is this handled?
