Where will you be staying at TESOL? Hotels are already filling up, and they are expensive. The Convention hotels are:

Hilton New York

Sheraton New York/Sheraton Manhattan


Paula booked several studio apartments at Radio City Apartments last year, so many webheads will be staying there, but if you don't already have a reservation you probably won't find anything there now.


Rita and I investigated hostels. You can find information at Hostel Bookers, Hostel Handbook, and other similar sites (Google "hostels new york city"). We considered the Chelsea Spot and Chelsea Star and ended up booking the Portland Square Hotel on W. 47th St. for one night, April 2. It isn't exactly cheap, but it seemed reasonable and not too far from the Convention (which is in midtown, 56th/57th Streets at Sixth Avenue). We are fortunate to be able to crash at the Sheraton NY with one of my colleagues April 3-4.


I thought we could use this page to find roommates and places to stay, and also to see where we all end up, so we can find each other more easily. Last year, I didn't realize several webheads were staying in the same hotel as I was until we were checking out!
