Our 2012 conference will be in Bellingham, Washington. Overlooking beautiful Bellingham Bay, the “City of Subdued Excitement” is home to Western Washington University as well as 80,000 other ‘Hamsters.
The conference will be held at the Best Western Lakeway Inn which is conveniently located near the city center and off exit 253 of Interstate 5. Hotel rates are $99 US per night by mentioning that you are attending NWMET. The Lakeway Inn is a full-service hotel featuring two restaurants and an indoor pool complex. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
There are many travel options to Bellingham and the hotel. In addition to driving Interstate 5, you can:
- Fly to Bellingham (BLI), then take the hotel’s shuttle service from the Bellingham airport.
- Fly to SeaTac, then take the Airporter Shuttle to the Guest House Inn (which is located across the street from the Lakeway Inn).
- Take the Amtrak Cascades route to Bellingham (BEL), then take the hotel’s shuttle service from the Bellingham train terminal.
Any way that you choose to travel you’ll see the beautiful environment around Bellingham.
