Hotels


The Unconference is scheduled to take place just before the 2016 ALA Conference in Orlando. But if you know Orlando then you know that the Convention Center and Rollins are on opposite sides of the city, about 20 miles apart on what locals ruefully call “the I-4 parking lot.” It can take an hour each way during rush hour to get from here to there and back. Public transportation is an option using the Lynx bus 111 and the Sunrail commuter train. Or you can book a hotel for the night near Rollins and then travel on to the ALA Conference after the Unconference. Here is a list of some alternatives:

AirBnB - find nearby rooms to rent for your stay.

Alfond Inn – expensive, but lovely, and close to Rollins.

Comfort Suites Downtown – a couple of miles from Rollins, less expensive.

Doubletree Downtown Orlando – Mid range prices, five miles from campus.

Park Plaza Hotel – Close and a little less expensive, very nice but a bit close to the train tracks, you may get woken by a train whistle!

Quality Inn & Suites – much less expensive, a couple of miles from campus.
