Conference Accomodations

PNC/MLA 1999 Annual Meeting
Seattle Center, Seattle, Washington
October 25-27, 1999

Downtown Seattle | Seattle Center

The 1999 PNC Annual Conference is located at Seattle Center on Queen Anne Hill, which is several miles from downtown Seattle. However, there is a Monorail that runs between Seattle Center and downtown Seattle. The fare is $1.00, and trains leave every 15 minutes between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m., seven days a week. The trip takes about two minutes. This makes travel between Seattle Center and downtown quick and efficient. We are providing information on accommodations both within walking distance of Seattle Center, and in downtown Seattle.
