CIES Official Conference Hotels

Note that the number of rooms available at the prices listed below are limited. Rates listed do not include taxes (totaling 11.416%).

All hotels are within a short walk to the Hawaii Convention Center, and have restaurants both in the hotel, and also nearby in low to moderate and up. Numbers of rooms reserved for CIES Conference 2006 are limited, so make reservations early. Although we encourage all to room at the official conference hotels, you are free also to shop for other hotels-many are too small for us to make special arrangements with, and are not real close, but within walking distance (30 minutes) of the Convention Center in Waikiki (see student housing section above)

Airfares to Honolulu: Search for bargain roundtrip airfares especially from gateway cities such as Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Los Angeles, Denver, Tokyo, Hong Kong, to Honolulu International Airport. Fares are generally lower if you stay over a Saturday night. Check for open seats on charters to Honolulu, by calling travel agents such as Pleasant Holidays located in most U.S. gateway cities. If you're using frequent flyer miles, make your reservations early.

Bargain Hotel/Airfare packages: If you elect to choose bargain hotel/airfare packages that might include a car, consult with your travel agent or internet based agencies such as Travelocity,com or Expedia.com, but be sure that your hotel is close to the Hawaii Convention Center.
