Radisson Suite Hotel Oceanfront
Indialantic Beach, Florida.
3101 North Highway A1A, Indialantic FL 32903
All rooms are oceanfront 1 bedroom suites, with kitchen/dining/work areas, a king-size bed in the bedroom, and a queen size sofa bed in the living room. Because these are suites, up to 4 adults can comfortably share a room. Hotel Reservations at the discounted conference rate should be made via the Radisson online reservation system using the group discount code "194co3" or by calling the hotel @ 321-773-9260 (Note that if you are staying beyond the conference block dates, you will need to call the hotel directly). When you make your reservation, be sure to tell the reservation desk that you are coming for CO3. The conference promotional rate is $189 + tax per night. The hotel holds a limited number of rooms at that rate but only until March 9th and these are "first come, first serve" so make your reservations early! Note that a small number of rooms are available at the conference rate before the conference begins (Tuesday night) and after the conference (Sunday night). You may want to take advantage of this if you decide to extend your stay in Florida.
