August 12, 2005 Note: The Sheraton Palo Alto, our main conference hotel, is FULL.
our alternate AC2005 hotel we recommend the beautiful and relaxing Crowne

the "Best Hotels of the West Coast" and is located
at 4290 El Camino Real, just 2.5 miles south of Stanford. Rooms
are available between $109-$129.
From Highway 280 North & South: Take Page Mill Road exit toward Palo Alto. Proceed approximately 3 miles. Turn right on El Camino Real. Go 1 mile to Dinah's Court stoplight. Turn right into Crowne Plaza Cabaña entrance.
If you need a weekday stayover, both hotels are now sold
out. In that case we recommend Best Western Mountain View Hotel, 2300
W El Camino Real, Mountain View, California, United States, 94040-1420.
$89/night. Phone: 650-962-9912
The Sheraton is 0.8 miles from Tressider Union, a beautiful fifteen to twenty minute walk or three minute drive to the conference site. Parking is free at Stanford after 4pm M-F and weekends, and $9/day at the Sheraton.
Mention AC2005 for the special $99 room rate (ask for "in house registration"). If interested, remind the staff to provide you a room near other conference attendees (more fun that way).
