Hotels around NPS


Parking on and around campus is very, very limited. Thus, we strongly recommend you do not use a private vehicle for transportation. Instead, there are a number of hotels within walking distance, and we provide a shuttle service between a number of locations.

Have a look at this Yahoo map for an overview of where the hotels are (mouse-over shows the name of the hotel in the status bar of your browser). Keep in mind that the gate to enter NPS is at the south-west side of the campus, at the corner of Sloat Avenue and Morse Drive.

       The shuttle service runs between NPS and the following locations. It will start in the morning at the Best Western Beach Resort, stop at the Embassy Suites, stop at Ramada Limited, and drop everyone off at NPS, with a reversed schedule at lunch time and in the evenings. It will run roughly every half hour at the times before and after the main conference, at lunch time, and after the banquet dinner:
Sun 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Mon 7-9am, 11:30-1pm, 5-7pm.
Tue 7-9am, 11:30-1pm, 4-7pm, 8:45-9:30pm.
Wed 7-9am, 11:30-1pm, 3-3:30pm.

There are many more hotels in Monterey. Those on Munras Avenue are fairly close to downtown Monterey. Some are right downtown, particularly the Mariott. Cannery Row is another entertainment and restaurant area with a number of hotels, some of them fancy and right on the water. Here is a map of the larger Monterey area. If you are willing to venture even further, the cities of Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, and Carmel are within 15 minutes drive from NPS and all have excellent facilities to offer. Please keep in mind that you will have to find your own transportation from those locations to the NPS campus. The local bus service MST might come in handy, though.
