DLA Conference 2020   June 3 – 5 Harvard GSD

Lodging

Affordable hotel options are limited around Harvard Square and there is a large active open market for short term stays in the Cambridge/Boston area, findable on the web and through your favorite Apps and social media.

For the period Tuesday June 2 – Friday June 5, 2020 (4 nights) the following three options have special DLA2020 rates (mention “DLA2020” for these rates.) For the first two options (but not the ‘Dormitory’) you may of course find yourself a roommate to share the room, on your own.
NOTE: SUPPLY IS LIMITED, AND ALL SPECIAL RATES BELOW ARE VALID ONLY UNTIL APRIL 1, 2020, DEPENDING UPON AVAILABILITY. DO NOT DELAY !

In addition to these specially arranged deals, there are a number of local hotels in and around Harvard Square, in Cambridge, and further afield in the Boston metro area; all are findable on the web and through your favorite Travelers’ Apps.
