Lodging Information
Two levels of lodging will be available:

  1. The Tapatio Cliffs Hilton at 235 USD per night
    We strongly recommend this option be taken by senior professors so we can fill our room block. All rooms are suites and can be shared. This hotel is closest to the meeting venue and surrounding restaurants, and replete with amenities in a stunning location.
  2. The second option is the Thunder Bird Hotel and offers business conference accommodations. The Thunder Bird is situated on campus, but is rather isolated. The hotel does have a pub. No restaurants are close by and the hotel is farther away from the meeting venue. The rate will be at about 125 USD per night. This option is mainly for those not able to afford or split the costs of staying at the Tapatio Cliffs Hilton. (
  • Please be aware the Final Four of the NCAA Basketball Championships Games will be held during the weekend of the CCPC meeting making hotels scarce and expensive. It is advised to make reservations promptly.
