Reservations: 800-962-6982.


Each participant is responsible for booking their own reservations and making payment arrangements. The Marriott System is now ready to take reservations. To make reservations ONLY, participants should call 800-962-6982; any other inquires should be to 719-260-1800.

NOTE this 800# is NOT the "Central Marriott Reservation" phone number. It is a direct line to the COS Marriott reservation desk. Should the COS reservation lines be busy, there is a provision for participants to contact the central number.

Registrants should ask for ICRE98/IEEE.

The room rate is $117 per night (double or single occupancy) plus applicable taxes. The rate is guaranteed for reservations received no later than March 16, 1998. The current rate is 8.1% (and varies slightly from time-to-time). The tax rate that will be applied will be the rate in effect at time of occupancy.


Easiest optimization: Fly to Colorado Springs (airline code: COS), take a cab (Taxi) to the hotel. AT THE MOMENT, this alternative should also yield the lowest airfare costs as compared to flying to Denver. However, the market is changing (due to a discount carrier pulling out of this market) and the cost savings may be reduced fairly soon.

Next optimization: Fly to COS, rent a car (higher cost, more flexibility).

Next optimization: Fly to Denver (airline code: DEN), take a shuttle bus (lowest DEN alternative cost, much higher aggravation rate...plan on 3-4 hour experience). If needed, I will obtain a list of shuttle services and prices.

Next optimization: Fly to DEN, rent a car (approximately 90 minutes from DEN to Marriott).

Next: Fly to DEN, take a cab (at least $110).
