Accommodations

Four options

Nota bene:

There are no blocks of rooms reserved for colloquium participants. Please make your own reservations by contacting the option of your choice and securing a room with your credit card. Generally, the earlier you book, the better the price (though modern marketing algorithms make generalizations of this sort tricky).

Options 1-3 are within a couple blocks of each other in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, within a few block of the colloquium venue at the Brooklyn Zen Center and have easy access to the subway (R train at Union St.).

Option 1: Union Hotel (my recommendation)

This is a no-frills hotel, but the rooms are clean and comfortable (and there’s wifi). I recommend it.

  • Book ASAP for the best rate (on Jan. 12, the best rate offered on the hotel’s website was $146/night — not including taxes — for the relevant June dates)
  • Union Hotel website 

Option 2: Holiday Inn Express

Just a couple blocks from the colloquium venue; basically a Holiday Inn Express with some added Brooklyn frump

Option 3: Fairfield Inn

Just a few blocks from the colloquium venue; a bit more upscale than options 1 and 2

Option 4: Go rogue

Find and book your own hotel, AirBnB, or bed & breakfast in Brooklyn or Lower Manhattan.

  • If you enter the address of the colloquium venue — 505 Carroll St., Brooklyn — you can gauge the distance to prospective hotels
  • Subway is 20-30 minutes from downtown Brooklyn (30 minute walk); 40-45 minutes from Union Square in Manhattan (for example)
