Travel & Accomodations

We have arranged for a block of rooms at the Doubletree Hotel Coconut Grove, 2649 South Bayshore Drive, Miami FL 33133 at a special room rate of $109/night. Conference participants may make reservations online at www.coconutgrove.doubletree.com or by calling 1-305-858-2500. When making your reservation please use the Group/Convention Code UMM.

Participants who are traveling to the Workshop by air should plan to fly into Miami International Airport (MIA). MIA is a major airport with excellent connections to both domestic and international destinations. The Doubletree in Coconut Grove is approximately seven miles from MIA and is easily reached by taxi or via the SuperShuttle. (South Florida is also served by the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), a somewhat smaller airport. However, it is located approximately thirty-two miles from the Doubletree and is less convenient vis-a-vis the Workshop.) We will provide transportation between the Doubletree and the Workshop site at the Rosenstiel School during the meeting so there is no need for participants to rent cars during the Workshop. However, for those participants who wish to rent a car, most major national companies and various local rental companies are located nearby MIA. Driving directions to the Doubletree are available on its website given above.
