Hotel reservations for all NWACC-member attendees will be made by and billed directly to NWACC. Attendees will need to provide a credit card at check-in to guarantee payment for any incidental charges. NWACC will cover room charges for the nights of May 31 and June 1; attendees staying additional nights will be responsible for those room charges (unless flight schedules make an additional night's stay necessary, in which case NWACC will cover the expense). Please contact Molly if you have questions about your hotel reservation.

Travel, Transportation, and Parking

Participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. NWACC will reimburse travel and hotel expenses for representatives from NWACC member institutions. Download the reimbursement request form here.

The MAX light rail provides service from the airport and the Amtrak Station to downtown. Tickets can be purchased at kiosks at each station. At the airport, board the Red Line and deboard at Pioneer Place. It is a 5-minute walk from this stop to the hotel. At Amtrak Union Station, board the southbound Green/Orange line and deboard at SW 5th and Oak. The hotel is half a block from this stop.

Parking at the hotel is valet-only. We ask that members who are not staying at the hotel park at the Smart Park garage at SW 3rd Ave and SW Alder St. (2 blocks from the hotel). For hotel guests, valet parking fees will be charged directly to NWACC.
