Hotel Lodging options for JTM-Denver

Our conference hotel is the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, were most participants have registered. It is accessible to our conference venue — the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education — via a fast, 15-minute ight-rail ride (details at the bottom of this page).  However the highly discounted special conference rate has sold out, so we are listing three other options which would require you to drive to/from campus. The closest to campus, and the most economical, is the LaQuinta.
