Hotel and Transportation


Our 2016 Symposium will take place at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale,Arizona. Built in 1956 and fully restored, it's an iconic resort known for mid-century-modern style. We will be located in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, very near a rich assortment of food, drink, and cultural activities. This area map (pdf) illustrates how hotel is located very near Scottsdale's Old Town, the Arts District, and the Waterfront. And check out this digital brochure for many images of the hotel's highlights and amenities. 

Standard room rates will be $139 (single or double), $164 (triple) and $189 (quad). Our block reservation date has ended, but if rooms are available, they can still be acquired at these dates. Please call the hotel directly (844-993-9601) to reserve under the UCGIS group.
