PODC 2000: Getting There

By Plane:

PODC 2000 is being held in Portland, Oregon. The Portland International Airport (PDX) is served by most major US carriers, with the exception of US Airways. It is especially well-served by Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines (it is Delta's far-east hub), Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines. PODC 2000 has negotiated discounted fares through Southwest Airlines.

From the Airport:

The conference hotel is the Portland Marriott City Center at 520 SW Broadway in downtown Portland. This is a new hotel and you should be very careful to go there and NOT to the Portland Marriott Downtown, which is another hotel. When driving or giving directions, be sure that go to the right hotel or you will be very disappointed.

There are a number of different ways that you can get from the airport to the conference hotel. Here a few in some vague order of preference:

Other Travel:

One can drive into Portland via Interstate 5 (from Seattle in the north or California in the south) and Interstate 84 (from the east). Here is a hotel-provided link whereby you can get driving directions.

There are also bus (Greyhound) and train (Amtrak) stations in downtown Portland. Many city buses have stops adjacent to these stations and provide continuous FREE service to within two blocks of the hotel. Click here for more information.
