Best Western Executive Hotel - UNAC has a reserved a block of rooms at the Best Western Executive Hotel, located at 7007 W. Broad St. in Richmond. The hotel is about a 25-minute drive from the Richmond International Airport and then a 10-minute drive to the convention center. It offers a free hot breakfast, free parking and has an outdoor pool. The rooms in our block are all non-smoking, with two double beds (total occupancy of four adults), a TV, high speed Internet, microwave and mini-fridge. To book a room at our special rate of $84/night ($95.17/night after taxes), USE THIS LINK or call 804-672-7007 by May 15, 2017 and identify yourself as a UNAC guest. IF YOU DON'T REGISTER BY 11:59 pm EST MAY 15 (or use one of these two methods to book) YOU WILL NOT GET OUR DISCOUNTED GROUP RATE.

The rooms in our block are available on a first-come, first-served basis. After the block is full, the hotel may offer rooms at their regular rate. (About $100, plus tax.) If you have problems booking a room at this location, contact Kat McNeal with the UNAC Local Organizing Committee at 703-859-0393.

Some of us who travel a lot for our jobs recommend looking for a hotel through Priceline.com, which offers decent discounts on hotel chains. You can find even bigger savings by clicking “Search Express Deals” on their website.

Free Lodgings
We're also trying to arrange free overnight lodgings - a church basement or someone’s sofa or floor space - for conference attendees who can’t afford a hotel room. (No details yet.)
