Hotel and nearby amenities:


  1. The hotel provides van transportation to/from the hotel to/from

     anywhere in town for members of the Fortran group and their

     families or guests staying in the reserved block, but it needs

     to be arranged in advance.


  2. All reserved rooms are one or two bedroom suites with separate

     sleeping and living areas, bathroom, and kitchen.  The kitchen

     is fully equipped with refrigerator, stove, microwave, dish

     washer, dishes, cookware, and utensils.


  3. King size beds in all bedrooms.


  4. Complimentary local telephone calls with guest voicemail. The

     hotel provides free local telephone service and connections to

     toll free long distance numbers.  However, the surcharges for

     long distance calls and international calls made through the

     hotel operator can be large.  It is recommended that all long

     distance and international calls being placed from your hotel

     room be made using a prepaid calling card.  Such prepaid calling

     cards can be purchased very inexpensively from many department

     stores, convenience stores, and discount buying clubs.  There

     are no additional hotel surcharges on either domestic long

     distance or international calls made with prepaid calling cards.

     high speed internet access connections in the meeting room. Note

     that the internet connections are typically in the living area. 

     Some rooms have wireless, but just to be safe, bring a 10 - 25

     foot CAT-5 or CAT-6 patch cable to connect your computer to the

     RJ-45 connector.  Some rooms have a hub on the desk; otherwise,

     look behind the television, behind the desk, or behind the sofa.

     Although most rooms have several RJ-45 connectors, only one

     works, so if the one you find doesn't work, look for another one

     before calling the front desk.  J3 has a wireless hub and a

     multi-port hub for use in the meeting room.


  7. Complimentary lagoon style swimming pool, jacuzzi, and exercise
