Hotels In The Area

If you are from out of town and plan on staying in the Lansing area during the workshop here is information on motels in the area. This list is updated from time to time based from feed back that participants have given us. There are separate recommendations for hotels in East Lansing and Lansing.

The following are a few suggestions for accommodations while you are attending the workshop.

Note: We do not ‘vouch’ for any of the hotels, not having been there ourselves, and especially given individual tastes. Please check with the hotel if quiet, location, or other specifics are a concern for you. Also if you require shuttle service to airport, or courtesy van.

If you have any difficulties finding a hotel, please call or e-mail us. To avoid disappointment it is a good idea to make a reservation as early as possible.

(Mileages below are a “guesstimate”…. So you might want to ask hotel if you need specifics about how far they are to the workshop locations).
