Unfortunately the room blocks at the Hotel Albuquerque, the Hotel Chaco and the Best Western Rio Grande Inn are now all full. Hotel Chaco still has some rooms at a "best available rate." Please call 866-505-7829 or 505-843-6300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details. There are no other hotels in close proximity to the Hotel Albuquerque. CAMWS is looking into the possibility of adding an additional overflow hotel in another part of the city but encourages members who do not yet have hotel reservations for the conference to pursue other possibilities on their own. Please feel free to use the CAMWS Facebook page as a way to find a roommate who already has a hotel reservation. CAMWS greatly regrets this inconvenience caused by the unexpectedly large number of CAMWS members planning to come to Albuquerque for the meeting.
Charter Luxury Services (https://charterluxuryservices.com) is offering a special rate to CAMWS members for round-trip airport transfers to the Hotel Albuquerque/Hotel Chaco. (Note that the Best Western Rio Grande Inn provides complimentary shuttle service for its guests.)
