Although Boston hotels are near full during most autumn weekends, for
a number of reasons the NELS weekend is especially crowded. Many of
the hotels in or near Harvard Square are already booked. If you know
that you will be coming to NELS 26--or if you even suspect that you
might be coming--then it is imperative to make hotel reservations as
soon as possible. On the other hand, there are a large number of
hotels in the Cambridge/Boston area, many of which are quite
convenient to both Harvard and MIT. A list of them will be provided
by e-mail on request to

We can suggest a number of other potential strategies. If you will be
driving to NELS, then you may want to stay in a hotel outside of
Boston/Cambridge and commute in. Although this has a number of
advantages, we strongly recommend that you take public transportation
into Cambridge if you choose to do this. (In particular, we suggest
parking your automobile at the Alewife MBTA station and either taking
the Red Line subway to Harvard or MIT, or the bus to Harvard.) In
Harvard Square or Tech Square, legal parking is expensive and
inconvenient even if you find any--and if you park anyway, we shall
count you fortunate if your car is merely ticketed and towed away.

For the more adventurous among our attendees, we will be providing a
limited amount of crash space, with preference being given to students
and unemployed. If you are interested, please fill out the following
form and return it to us, either at the address above or (preferably)
e-mail it to as soon as possible.
