Greetings from Cincinnati, Ohio!
I and over 100 MOUGers are already here at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel, but many of you will be arriving today or tomorrow for the MLA Annual Meeting. Here are a few tips from those of us already on the ground.
- Assistant Convention Manager Diane Steinhaus has updated the instructions for how to find the "Airporter" bus at the Cincinnati Airport, based on her trip to town yesterday. Take the 2X route "Airporter" Bus, operated by Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK).The bus departs from east end of Baggage Claim. Look to your right when you go outside baggage claim and walk toward the Taxi stand. You will see the TANK bus shelter to your right near the rental car pickups.The “Airporter” route goes past the Northern Kentucky Convention Center before crossing the river into downtown. Exit the bus at 5th and Elm. The conference hotel is one block to the east at the corner of 5th and Race.
- I drove to Cincy. There are several good parking options near the hotel. The hotel garage has valet parking, discounted 10% for MLA participants during the conference, and that comes out to around $25.00 a day. If you self-park in the hotel garage, that rate goes down, and if you don't charge the cost to your room, but instead pay when you exit, it goes down further. I parked at the Tower Place Garage (or Pogues Garage, but most of the signs still say Tower Place) on the opposite side of Race St., and that charges $15 per day. If you'd like to see the full range of parking options near the hotel, check out this pdf.
- A taxi should still cost $34.00, one way, from from the airport to the Hilton.
Safe travels, and see you soon!
