Crowne Plaza Hotel
The conference hotel and venue is the Crowne Plaza Parkview. A limited block of rooms is set aside at the PLDI rate. Use this link to reserve online. Only a few higher-priced rooms left.
- Smoke: The hotel has a smoking floor, if this is not what you want, make sure to not request a smoking room.
- Internet: By default, rooms come with free breakfast but Internet costs 120RMB/day in the room (free at the conference). We have negotiated that individuals can replace breakfast with free Internet. This must be requested at registration. Write it in the "Additional requests" box in the last step of registration. And remind the hotel at checkin.
- Rate: there should be non-smoking King and double-bed rooms at ~180$ (1100RMB). If not, complain.
