2016 Conference Accommodations

Hotels

Below is a list of well-reviewed, relatively affordable local accommodations in order of their proximity to the Illini Union Hotel, where the conference will be held. Conference presenters might consider any of these options for accommodations during the conference, but are also welcome to find alternative accommodations in the area (using https://www.airbnb.com, https://www.expedia.com/, etc.). If you’d like to find another presenter to room with to split the cost for a hotel, we encourage you to post to the British Modernities Group Facebook page.
