The conference hotel, hotel Orrington, is almost filled to capacity, but should still be the first choice for our members, both because of the location and the quality of the accommodations. There might still be space available, so we urge you (!) to keep trying. If the online reservation system does not let you book the room, you can also try calling them
Our backup option is another nearby hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, which is only half a mile from the conference hotel, and we have reserved 10 rooms ($139 per night) to be kept reserved for EHA members. The link to their
reservation page is:
You can call the Hilton Garden Inn direct at +1-847-475-6400 or through 1-877-STAY-HGI or 1-800-HILTONS. To access your special rates, EHA members should request the “ECONOMIC HISTORY ASSOCIATION” block.
