Morgantown Hotel Update 6 Sep

Given the scheduled football game against OK State, the Friday night rooms at the conference hotel have already been reserved and there are NO reasonably priced rooms anywhere in Morgantown for Friday the 27th.

Most weekend rooms have a two night minimum and are $400/night. If you are planning to fly out of Pittsburgh Saturday, you likely will need to relocate to Pittsburgh Friday.

The Pittsburgh airport has a Sheraton and there are many nearby hotels with airport shuttle service. There are other options: (a) Airbnb has some rentals available still, (b) some locals can host a very few people, and (c) if you’re driving getting just a little bit out of Morgantown (Fairmont for example) would help. Point Marion PA is also only about 15 minutes out of town.

Please keep in mind that SDA still needs to generate a sufficient number of hotel reservations for Wednesday/Thursday at the conference hotel (that's how we get free meeting space); so it would not be good to relocate for your entire stay. If you have any questions, you can email Julia Wolf (JKWolf@mix.wvu.edu) or Lynne Cossman (Lynne.Cossman@mail.wvu.edu).

We apologize if this causes you great inconvenience, but we will try to work with you as best we can.
