Participants are invited to arrange their own accommodations from the wide array of hotels, b&b’s and inns to be found in downtown St. Petersburg and St. Pete Beach.
Eckerd College has arranged for a limited number of rooms at The Magnuson Cove and the Avalon St. Petersburg at discounted rates. A complimentary shuttle will connect participants of the conference with these two hotels only and conference activities throughout the week.
$79 per night+tax, single or double occupancy, at the Magnuson, located on the bayfront less than two miles from the campus.
$110/$120+tax (one King bed) or $100/$115+tax (one Queen bed) at the Avalon located in Downtown St. Pete.
Participants are to contact the hotels directly and ask for the Writers in Paradise rate. If you would like to share a room with another participant, please notify the conference coordinator, who will compile and distribute by e-mail a list of those looking for a roommate. *Please note, there is only one bed per room at the Avalon.
