The deadline for acquiring a room at The Blackwell under our reduced rate has now passed. You can still call and inquire, but at last check they had only "lofts" (suites) available. Please note that even if a room becomes available, they are no longer obligated to honor our reduced rate. NOTE: There are still rooms available at a reduced rate at Holiday Inn on the Lane and the rate will be honored until June 4th.

The Blackwell Inn

This year’s conference will be held at The Blackwell, an inn and conference center on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.  SHAFR has secured a limited number of rooms at a reduced rate.  The deadline for receiving this rate is May 26, 2008.  Please note that the hotel is required to honor our reduced rate until this date OR until all the rooms in our reserved bloc have been booked.  Once our bloc is full, the hotel will offer rooms at its usual rate, if rooms are available, or may even be completely booked.  Please make your reservations as early as you can.

Rates are $129/night per room for single or double occupancy and $179 per room for the inn’s “Loft” rooms (suites).  Please use the link below to make your reservation, find out more information about the hotel, and to get directions to The Blackwell.  You may also call 1-866-247-4003 to make a reservation.
