Lodging

Our venue is the Hilton Garden Inn Bloomington. Tons of general information about the hotel, including how to get there, can be found by following the link above to the hotel website. Here are some facts specific to our event and the answers to some of your most burning questions:

  • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BOOK NOW. The room block will not open until SKS registration opens. We will send you the hotel registration link with your SKS registration confirmation email. Our room block is now closed.
  • Retreat rate is $149 per night plus 12% tax, for a room with either 1 king bed or 2 queen beds.
  • Parking is a bargain at $6 a day (self-parking with in/out privileges).
  • Breakfast is not included with the room, but continental breakfast on Friday and Saturday is included with the retreat package. If you prefer a more substantial meal, or if you don’t have a morning class and like to sleep in, the hotel does serve a fresh cooked-to-order breakfast, or ask me to recommend my favorite incredibly-close, incredibly-good breakfast place.
  • Shuttle service from the Indianapolis airport to Bloomington is operated nine times a day by Go Express Travel.¬†With an online reservation, the price is $18 one way.
