Lodging and Transportation for the Demonstration

Lodging

The official hotel of the Adoptee Rights Demonstration is the Best Western St. Christopher Hotel, located within walking distance of the protest location. The rooms are $74.00 per night. If you are planning on attending, please make your reservation now.

While it would be great to have everyone in the same hotel, it is recognized that this does not fit all budgets. Here are some alternate lodgings you may wish to consider:

Hotels – based on availability, you may be able to find a room at the Best Western for less than the quoted price of $74.00 per night. Hotels.com lists the price right now at $72.50 per night. They also list 43 other hotels with price ranges of $48.00 to $75.00, so shop around, but be sure to read reviews as well to get an idea of what the hotel is like.


Hostels – there are also two hostels in the area, listed below. You can read reviews of these and other hostels here:
