Each attendee is responsible for arranging for his or her accommodations. A block of rooms is being held for QSCP-XIII participants at Candlewood Suites, which is a hotel adjacent to the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, where the workshop will take place. To make a reservation at Candlewood Suites, go to the room reservation page.

Two types of suites will be available for workshop participants:

All rooms at Candlewood Suites are private, single suite accommodations complete with a full kitchen, executive desk, personalized voice mail, telephone, modem and Ethernet connections. The hotel has facilities for guest laundry and an exercise room. Dry cleaning service is also available. In addition, all overnight guests of Candlewood Suites become temporary members of the University Club of Michigan State University. For further details on Candlewood Suites rooms and amenities, see the attached information. For room rates, see the table below.

Room Type Reserved before April 15, 2008 Reserved before May 31, 2008 Reserved before June 5, 2008 Reserved after June 5, 2008
Studio Suite $85 $89 $94 $107
One-bedroom Suite $105 $109 $114 $127
The above rates do not include tax, which is 13 %. As taxes may fluctuate from the time a reservation is made until the actual stay, this tax rate is only an estimate.

The initial block of rooms consists of 90 studio suites and 10 one-bedroom suites. On April 15th, 2008, which is the closing date for Early Bird Discount Registration, Candlewood Suites will begin releasing a percentage of unreserved rooms from the QSCP-XIII block according to the following schedule: 15 % on April 15th, another 15 % on May 5th, another 50 % on May 20th, and all remaining unreserved rooms in the QSCP-XIII block on June 5th. The QSCP-XIII organizers strongly recommend that you reserve your room as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary inconveniences.

If all rooms in the QSCP-XIII block are reserved by workshop participants, Candlewood Suites will continue taking reservations from QSCP-XIII participants until every room in the hotel is sold out. If this happens and no rooms are available, an overflow block will be created at another nearby hotel and the QSCP-XIII organizers will arrange for transportation between that hotel and the Henry Center. If you try to make a reservation at Candlewood Suites and are told that rooms are no longer available, please contact the QSCP-XIII organizers at    .

To make a reservation at Candlewood Suites, go to the room reservation page.

Although we recommend Candlewood Suites, which are adjacent to the Henry Conference Center, other accommodations are available in the Lansing area.
