Lodging and Transportation

The Radnor Hotel is aproximately two miles from the Gregg Conference center. We have a group discount there for anyone who registers before March 15th. These rooms fill quickly, and other lodging options are much less convenient, so we urge you to reserve your room early!
You can visit their website or call 1.800.537.3000 directly to reserve a room. Please mention that you are with SELAM International when you reserve your room. We will provide a shuttle bus at the begining and end of each program day between the two locations. A sign will be posted at both locations informing you of the times of the shuttles. Intermittent transportation is on your own.

Transportation from the airport or train station is available by hailing any taxi, but may be more convenient and less expensive if you reserve a car ahead of time. View directions and suggested transportation services at the website of the Gregg conference center.
