Getting to Corvallis
The airports that serve travelers to Corvallis are located in Portland, Eugene, and Salem. Airline service to and from the closest city, Salem (SLE) is limited to a SkyWest connection through Salt Lake City. Eugene, about a 40-minute drive from the Oregon State University campus, is a very good option. The Eugene (EUG) airport is served by Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, Delta, United, and US Airways. The Portland airport (PDX) is served by a larger number of national and international carriers and fares tend to be lower, but the trip to Corvallis is quite a bit longer. The Portland airport has ground transportation operated by Hut's Shuttle with service to Corvallis every 90 minutes. Eugene is currently served by OmniShuttle, a shared-ride service that offers significant cost savings for multiple passengers traveling on the same reservation. Car rentals are also available at all three airports and are the only form of ground transportation to and from Salem. Taxi service from Portland would not be economically feasible for most travelers. One final transportation option that may be attractive to some is the Amtrak Coast Starlight that runs between Los Angeles and Seattle. The nearest stop to the OSU campus is in Albany, Oregon, which is about a 10-mile cab ride from Corvallis.
The official conference hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn, located across the street from the university's conference center on the south edge of campus. The discounted LASSO rate is no longer available. For information about availability at normal rates, visit the Hilton Garden Inn / LASSO web site .
If you don't require a room close to the conference site or if the Hilton is fully booked, there are some options downtown or in local B&B establishments. A complete list may be found at the Corvallis Tourism web site.
