I am pleased to announce the following hotel arrangements and travel information for the 36th Annual “Husserl Circle” Conference at Wellesley College (June 22-24, 2006).
Wellesley College is located approximately 12 miles west of Boston in the town of Wellesley. I have reserved blocks of rooms at three local area hotels. Conference participants are responsible for their own reservations and should refer to the “Husserl Circle Conference” or “Philosophy Conference at Wellesley” in order to benefit from special conference rates. Each hotel, located approximately 10 minutes from Wellesley College, has specific conditions on cancellation policies and booking dates. On each day of the conference, I have arranged for a morning and evening shuttle service that will transport attendees to and from the college. Please note that none of the hotels are within walking distance from the campus! ]
I have deliberately not many any arrangements with hotels in Boston. Boston hotel prices are significantly more expensive and placing conference attendees in Boston would have added substantial travel time to and from the campus each day (Boston roadways are extremely congested during morning and evening rush-hours). If you would like to make your own independent hotel accommodations in Boston, you can reach Wellesley Campus either by car or by public transportation.
By car from Boston: Take the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) West to Exit 15 (Weston/I-95/Route 128). Travel south 2 miles on I-95/ Route 128 for 2 miles to Exit 20B (Framingham/Worcester/ Route 9 West). Drive west on Route 9 for 3.9 miles. Watch for the green Weston Road/Weston sign. Immediately after that sign, take the exit marked Wellesley/Needham. At the end of the ramp, turn right onto Weston Road. Drive 1 mile to the traffic light at the intersection of Route 135. Turn right onto 135 West and drive one-half mile to the first traffic light, which will be at the main entrance of the College (College Road). Turn left onto College Road. Visitors may park in the Davis Parking Facility, immediately to the right after the main entrance.
There also exists a commuter rail service linking Wellesley and Boston. From the Amtrak terminal at South Station, take the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail to the Wellesley Square stop (www.mbta.com/traveling_t/schedules_commuter_linedetail.asp?line=framingham). The Commuter Rail schedule can be accessed on-line or at 1-800-392-6100. The commute is approximately half an hour. You may also take the Commuter Rail to Wellesley from Back Bay Station. Note: there are three stations in the town of Wellesley. You want to exit at “Wellesley Square.” Go up the stairs and turn left onto Crest Road; follow Crest a short distance over a bridge that spans the rail-line. Take a right onto Central Street. Walk five minutes to the second set of lights. Cross the street to the entrance of the College. Allow twenty minutes to walk to your destination on campus (www.wellesley.edu/CampusMaps/index.html).
In order to meet the diverse needs of conference attendees, I have selected three different area hotels.
1). Holiday Inn Boston / Newton (tel: 617-969-5300 / www.holiday-inn.com/bos-netwon) Conveniently located at the terminal of a public transportation metro line (known as the “T”), the Holiday Inn Boston / Newton offers an excellent setting if you would like to enjoy direct access to Boston from your hotel. The hotel is next to the Green Line terminal “Riverside” connecting you to downtown Boston (www.mbta.com/traveling_t/schedules_subway.asp) within 30-40 minutes. The hotel features a full service restaurant and lounge, outdoor pool, and fitness center. If you are traveling by car, the Holiday Inn is ideally located off Route 128 (I 95), within a mile of the Rte. 128 / Mass Pike intersection. I have reserved a block rooms from Wednesday, June 21 to Monday June 26. Reservations made after Monday, May 22 will be provided on a space available basis at prevailing rates. Special conference rate has been set at $119 per night (not including taxes).
Directions to the Holiday Inn from Logan International Airport (www.massport.com): Taxi rides from Logan airport to the Holiday Inn Boston / Newton will cost roughly $30-40 (but do ask before you enter a taxi since rates seem to increase over-night). If you decide to take public transportation, count on a solid one hour ride. At Logan, take the free shuttle bus to the MBTA Airport Subway stop. Take the Blue Line Inbound four stops to “Government Center.” Go upstairs and change to the Green Line. Ride an Outbound subway marked "RIVERSIDE-D" to “Riverside,” the final destination on the “D” line. Please note that the Green Line has different “stems,” each indicated with a letter—you must take a “D” train to reach “Riverside,”otherwise you’ll end up somewhere else, and far, most likely at Boston College.
2). Crowne Plaza Boston / Natick, situated in the midst of a sprawling mall complex (with restaurants, movie theatre, and plenty of stores) is accessible by either car (exit 13 off the Mass Pike; bear right after toll-booth, turn left at second traffic light and follow sign to Rte. 9 East) or from Logan airport with the “Framingham Logan Express” (www.massport.com/logan/getti_typeo_logan.html) bus service. The Crowne Plaza has a full service restaurant, bar and spacious atrium lounge. Please note that this hotel is not connected directly to any public transportation to Boston. The hotel does provide complimentary shuttle service to local bus and rail links to Boston. I have reserved rooms from Wednesday, June 21 to Monday June 26. Reservations made after Monday, May 22 will be provided on a space available basis at prevailing rates. Special conference rate has been set at $119 per night (not including taxes).
Directions to the Crowne Plaza from Logan Airport: The “Framingham Logan Express” (www.massport.com/logan/getti_typeo_logan.html) is a convenient and reliable bus service (round trip $20; single fare $11) with a transit time of 30-45 minutes. For service schedule, you may look on-line or call 1-800-23-LOGAN. At the “Framingham Logan Express” terminal, the Crowne Plaza has a courtesy phone that allows you to call for a complimentary shuttle bus to the hotel. Taxis service to the hotel from Logan Airport is prohibitively priced at roughly $60-70.
3). Travelodge Boston / Natick (tel: 508-655-2222 / www.naticktravelodge.com)
Travelodge Boston / Natick is a literally a stone’s throw away from the Crowne Plaza. Rooms have a 25” color TV with cable and a coffee maker. I have reserved rooms from Wednesday, June 21 to Monday June 26. Room reservations must be made before May 21 in order to benefit from the conference rate. Special conference rate as been set at $67.15 per night (not including taxes).
Directions to the Travelodge from Logan
Airport: Follow directions to Crowne Plaza via
All conference sessions will take place in the Wellesley College Club (www.wellesley.edu/Collegeclub). On Thursday and Saturday, conference attendees are invited to a lunch buffet. On Friday evening, conference attendees are invited to a reception buffet. Vegetarian options will be available at each meal. There is no obligation or charge to these events; spouses, partners, and friends are welcome, though if you plan to invite guests, please send me an email for planning purposes.
Should you have any specific questions regarding your travel or hotel arrangements, please do not hesitate to email me. Please refrain from directing your queries to the administrative assistant in my department.
A final reminder that abstracts or completed papers should be submitted (preferably by surface mail) no later than March 1, 2006.
I looking forward to greeting you in June,
Nicolas de Warren
