We recommend staying in Downtown Saint Paul if you would like to stay overnight before the event. There are several options, including the Saint Paul Hotel, the Drury Plaza Hotel, the InterContinental Saint Paul RiverFront, and the DoubleTree in Saint Paul.
The Discovery Education room block at the Saint Paul Hotel has closed, but the hotel still has availability. Please call the hotel directly to secure accommodations if you have not done so already.
Participants are responsible for the cost of the hotel room nights, airfare, and transportation to and from the hotel.
