The conference has reserved a block of rooms at the Hotel at Old Town right across the street from the Conference Center.

The landmark 1906 building has been transformed into a Victorian-era showcase. Elegant, turn-of-the-century style furnishings are complemented by today’s modern amenities, providing the best of old and new.

The spacious luxury accommodations include a fully-equipped kitchen, grand two-poster bed with plush mattress and Egyptian cotton linens, down blankets, exquisite bath amenities, and complimentary high-speed wired and wireless Internet access. A hot buffet breakfast is also available each morning of your stay as well as complimentary parking in the adjacent parking garage.

Contact the hotel directly at 877-265-3869 to book your reservation. But be sure to ask for the Social Studies conference group rate of $79/queen studio, $89/king studio, or $99/two queens. You’ll want to register by the cutoff date of October 13.

A variety of hotel amenities include a fitness facility, business center, complimentary parking, laundry facilities, same-day dry cleaning service, and the Keen Kutter Piano Bar, which invites relaxation and quiet conversation.

There’s only one place in Wichita where you’ll find 15 restaurants, another 15 drinking establishments, and more than 30 shops and galleries: Old Town. And our conference is right in the middle of all of it! So when the day is over and you’re looking for a great place to hang out, network with new friends, or grab a quick drink, Old Town is the place to be.
