I'm gonna tear off Akira's toe!We're pleased to announce that we have arranged a fantastic room rate with the Westin Long Beach hotel for RAW 2005 attendees. The hotel will act as the site for the conference presentations and poster sessions. The secured rate for a single, double, triple, or even quadruple room is $99 per night (plus the usual taxes and stuff)! The Westin Long Beach boasts newly renovated rooms with features such as the Heavenly Bed (lots of pillows and really comfy sheets) and the Heavenly Shower (dual shower heads!). RAW 2005 organizers have seen the rooms first-hand and can attest to their heavenliness. In addition to that, they have high-speed internet in all rooms and wireless internet (WI-FI) in most common areas. We would like to thank the Westin Long Beach for providing an affordable location to host the conference. They have created a personalized hotel website for making reservations and finding other information.

Of course, if you are looking for something even less expensive or if the Westin just isn't your cup of ocean, we can suggest some other options, but have not made any arrangements with them....yet. You could try:

Travelodge Long Beach - just around the corner from the Westin.

Vagabond Inn Long Beach - a few blocks away from the Westin.


Sometimes you just need a friend. Or rather, nothing sucks more than being the odd man out. If this is the case, we'd like to help. If you are looking for someone to share a room with to save costs, go to the MESSAGE BOARDS to post your needs. Hopefully, you will find someone who has similar requests. Good luck!
