Sessions on Saturday and Sunday will be held at the Hotel Murano, a beautiful hotel with 21 floors filled with original glass artwork. The block of NCPTW rooms at the Murano has sold out, but an additional block of conference rooms is available at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott. Reserve your room at the Courtyard by Marriott by Oct. 21.

There are also rooms available at conference rates at the Silver Cloud Hotel, on the waterfront; the Silver Cloud offers a free shuttle within Tacoma that can bring you at no charge to and from the Murano, the Museum of Glass, and the University of Puget Sound. Reserve your room at the Silver Cloud by Oct. 20.

Other downtown hotel rooms accessible by the Link Light Rail are also relatively convenient to the Murano.
