We have rooms reserved at the hotels featured below in Carcassonne. These rooms will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and you will be asked to provide first, second and third choices. Our registration director, Andrea Lomanto, will confirm your reservation. Please note that accommodations for the post-conference journeys will be added to the itinerary for each trip.

We will be providing basic, midrange and upgraded accommodation choices during our stay in Carcassonne: the Hotel Bristol, the Hotel du Soleil le Terminus, and the Hotel Trois Couronnes (which is our upgraded option).  Each of our hotels, as well as our conference site, is located in La Ville Basse, between the Aude River and the Canal du Midi, and just west of the medieval walled La Cité.

The Hôtel Bristol
The Bristol is a small, 2-star hotel in a 19th century building with a lovely view of the Canal du Midi.  It is an economical option within walking distance of Carcassonne’s railway station, and a 20 minute walk to the medieval city.

The Bristol’s rooms are quiet and comfortable, and most, but not all, have air-conditioning.

Amenities:

  • Free WiFi in all rooms
