Annual No Host Party

This year we return to the La Quinta Inn & Suites. This hotel has been completely remodeled since we last stayed here. We will have our own meeting room and we can bring in food and adult beverages. The rate is $109 plus taxes. Be sure to tell the hotel staff that you are with the OIW when registering. There are restaurants on either side, as well as several others in walking distance. Our after the conference no host party will be here. All attendees are invited. Our authors will be present. Please join us.


The Marriott Courtyard where we stayed last year has chosen not to reopen its café or bar. In addition, they have refused our request to bring in our own food and adult beverages. If you have already made reservations here, please cancel and join us at the La Quinta.
