/***************** NELS Hotel Information *****************/

The weekend of Oct. 27-30 is one of the busiest of the year in the
Boston/Cambridge area. NELS has been able to reserve only a very
limited number of rooms at block rates in the following two hotels for
conference participants:

Days Inn
1234 Soldiers Field Rd.
Boston, MA 02135
(617) 254-1234

NELS rates: $89/single -- $99/double (mention Harvard-MIT
Linguistics Dept. conference)

The Days Inn is approximately 15 minutes walk to the center of
Harvard Square or 10 minutes by bus (#86 bus stops on Western
Ave. directly behind the Days Inn and runs every 8-10 minutes
for the better part of the day and evening, less frequently on
off-hours and weekends/holidays).



Hyatt Regency Cambridge
575 Memorial Drive
Cambridge, MA
(617) 492-1234

NELS rates: $169/night, single or double occupancy (specify
that you are attending Linguistics Dept. Seminar Oct. 26th)

The Hyatt has a complimentary, on-the-hour shuttle to Harvard
Sq. and Kendall Sq. (MIT) and is located on the Charles River
approximately midway between the two.


Reservations for the above hotels should be made directly
through the hotels themselves and availability will be on
a first-come first-serve basis. Reservations for both
hotels must be made BEFORE SEPTEMBER 25, 1995 to obtain
NELS rates.

_______________________________________________________________________

This is a further partial list of the hotels in the Boston/Cambridge area.
It includes their phone number (in area code 617 unless otherwise noted),
their address, their approximate price and if they are near an MBTA
station (T).

The code for hotel prices is simple:
$ a single in the hotel is generally less than US$100 per night;
$$ a single is more than US$100 per night; and
$$$ a single is *much* more than US$100 per night.

Unfortunately, there is no way to know whether a given hotel will have
space during the conference without calling them directly, perhaps
trying several times over the next few months. Alternatively, you
might want to find a hotel outside of Cambridge/Boston. Also, you
might consider the following, which often works out quite well:
