Hotel and Travel

The Westin Seattle is the UbiComp 2003 Conference Hotel. All workshop and technical program activities will take place at the Westin, except for the Conference Banquet on Tuesday evening. The Westin is offering a discounted rate for UbiComp 2003 attendees. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Seattle. The Pike Place Market, department stores, excellent restaurants and tourist attractions are located within walking distance.

Note: there are several conventions being held in Seattle during the month of October and hotel rooms are filling up quickly. You are encouraged to make your reservation as soon as possible. If you need lodging on Saturday night please note that due to another convention taking place at the Westin prior to UbiComp 2003, there are no longer any rooms available on Saturday, October 11. The conference has also reserved a room block for Saturday at the Days Inn, which is located four blocks away from the Westin. If you would like to stay at the Days Inn on Saturday, and then move over to the Westin on Sunday, you will need to make separate reservations at each hotel, and then inform the Days Inn when you check in and they will make the necessary arrangements to move your luggage to the Westin for you on Sunday. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by switching hotels.
