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).
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.
