A list of hotels in Charlottesville is here. We strongly advise choosing only the Red Roof Inn, the Courtyard by Marriott (UVA/Medical Center, not Charlottesville North), the Hampton Inn and Suites at the University (not the Hampton Inn), and the Best Western Cavalier Inn. All are within walking distance of the University and the first three are near the Corner, an area with many restaurants. A budget option is the EconoLodge, a basic motel that is a little further away but still within walking distance. (Note: as of November, the Econolodge had increased rates for Friday and Saturday, so it is probably more expensive than the three hotels with conference rates). All other hotels require a car and parking at the University is quite expensive.
We have arranged special rates for conference attendees at the Cavalier Inn, the Red Roof Inn and the Hampton Inn and Suites. You can obtain these rates after November 15th 2008.

Cavalier Inn: Two bed rooms (35) and King bed rooms (5) $87 per night + tax, including breakfast. email booking to email@example.com - tell them you are with the MS 3 conference, provide your address, phone number, dates of reservation and a credit card number to reserve the room.
