Within the USA, call: 1-800 551-1466, refer to "Dept. of German Studies/ “Poets Symposium," or to my name (Classen).  Local number: 520 239-2300. Transportation to and from the symposium (at the University of Arizona), will be provided by means of the new streetcar ($4./day, covered by the registration).  For international guests, please fax your reservations to: 011- 520-239-2329.

The hotel can pick you up  from the airport if you make a reservation ahead of time and if the van is available. Email your itinerary to Jill Ward, Manager. A tip of ca. $5. or more is expected.

Alternative transportation from the airport: There are three additional (common) options:

1. Bus no. 25 to downtown ($1.75), 6th Ave. and Pennington St. right next to Ronstadt Bus Depot, from there you walk in the direction west on Congress to Granada, turn left (south) to the I-10, through the tunnel, and the hotel is right there (this is by now all a pleasant walk, with good sidewalks, traffic lights, etc, so really safe). Or you can call the hotel at 239-2300 (but they might not have the van available). Alternatively, you can walk down Congress West to the I-10, pass under it, then turn left (South) and walk along Frontage Road to the Hotel (max. 15 minutes), also good sidewalks, traffic lights, etc. But now there is the better option: Buy a transfer ticket (same price) for the bus, and when you get to Ronstead, go to Congress, which runs east-west parallel to it, and hop on the streetcar, the ticket is still valid, and the streetcar will stop right next to the hotel.

For bus no. 25 (really easy and very cheap, just $1.50), see their schedule). Once you have reached Ronstadt downtown (Pennington St/6th Ave.), follow the instructions outlined above.

2. Take the airport shuttle (one way: ca. $28; round trip: ca. $45), Stagecoach (http://www.azstagecoach.com). Subject to change
