Update to the Update: The deadlines for dorms and special-rate hotel rooms have passed.
Dorms: Many people have chosen to stay in dorms and as a result, the dorms available to the Symposium attendees at Spalding University are now fully booked. Currently we have dorm rooms under contract at the University of Louisville which is located about 2 miles south of Spalding University. The dorms at the University of Louisville are on a direct public transit bus line along 4 Street, the same street as the Spalding University dorms. It is an easy, direct route up 4th Street to Spalding University, the Seelbach Hotel, and 4th Street Live!. The bus will also take riders within 3 blocks of the Muhammad Ali Center for the Friendship party Friday night. Attendees will likely need to purchase a weekly bus pass. (The bus pass would also be useful for attendees to visit local attractions.)
Hotel: There are still rooms available at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel. The Seelbach Hotel is the venue for the Welcome Banquet, and is right at 4 Street Live!, the site of the daily outdoor morning sunrise practices with the Grandmasters. The Seelbach Hotel is about a ½ mile walk from Spalding University. There is also public bus transit to Spalding University. This grand hotel is a 4-Diamond luxury hotel, is rich in local history, and is considered the premiere hotel in the state of Kentucky. The Symposium rate (see link on Symposium website) is a greatly discounted $109 per night per room. If you would like to share the cost with a roommate, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to match you with a roommate. The deadline to receive the discounted Symposium hotel rate is Monday, June 2, 2014.
