Lodging can be expensive in the San Francisco Bay Area, particularly in the upscale towns of Tiburon, Sausalito, and Mill Valley. It is strongly recommended that people attending the conference book early. Please note that the prices below do not include an additional 10% occupancy tax.Mill Valley

Tamalpais Motel (Seminary Drive Exit):Mill Valley/Sausalito Travel Lodge (Seminary Drive Exit):
Both the Travel Lodge and the Aqua Hotel are located on the shore of a water wild-life preserve (a branch of the San Francisco Bay). There is a multi-use path over and around the preserve.Other Options for Lodging
Other options for lodging include downtown Sausalito, Tiburon, and downtown San Francisco. We are investigating overflow room pricing at:The Waters Edge (Sister hotel to conference venue - expensive)
An equally spectacular choice is the Casa Madrone in Sausalito (expensive).
If you choose to stay in these or other locations, you will need your own car. Downtown San Francisco and Tiburon are linked by both bus and ferry service, but these services are oriented towards commuter traffic into San Francisco. You would be doing the reverse commute for which there is virtually no support. For accommodations in San Francisco, please refer to any visitor's guide. In Mill Valley the following web page lists accommodations, including some of the hotels described above. http://www.millvalley.org/accommodations1.html.
