Lodging Information

There are some hotels near the university and many around the airport. You can consult your favorite website for rates and location. The cheapest rates can be obtained at www.hotwire.com but it won't let you see the actual hotel until you pay. You can try hotels.com, obitz.com etc. I've found these useful in the past.
