You will book your hotel accommodations at the workshop hotel through the assistant director and registrar, Elsabet Fisseha ([email protected]). Please do NOT make hotel reservations through the hotel’s front desk. This will cause confusion and possibly double–booking. The cost of your hotel room will be deducted,with your permission, from your expenses stipend so you will not pay for it directly. If you wish to share a room, Elsabet can help you find a suitable roommate. [See No. 2 below] If you book a double with a roommate, the cost for five nights is approximately $230 which will be deducted from your stipend. The total cost with tax for a single (without sharing with a room-mate) for five nights is approximately $460 to be deducted from your stipend. These rates are “negotiated workshop rates” and include a hot buffet breakfast, high-speed internet access, a business center, a small fitness center, a pool, and a flat screen TV with cable and coffee-makers in each room.
