Hotel bookings are to be made on a personal basis. The Rocky Mountain Map Society will NOT book rooms.

The Brown Palace and Comfort Inn Downtown Hotels are located adjacent to one another in the center of bustling downtown Denver, close to shops, restuarants, and public transportation facilities. But most important, the Hotels are central to all activities of the combined Map Fair and IMCoS Symposium. Whatever events won't take place inside the Hotels are within easy walking distance.

The Brown Palace is a fully modernized world-class four-star luxury hotel opened in 1892, just as Denver was emerging as the preeminent city within the recently settled Rocky Mountain Region. Accommodations and services are equal to the hotel's highly rated status and the architecture, appointments, and history associated with the Brown Palace are fascinating and unique.

The Brown Palace is connected by an enclosed overhead walkway with its sister hotel, the Comfort Inn Downtown, just across the street. The Comfort Inn is modernly updated, well appointed, comfortable and clean, in keeping with its close association with the Brown Palace.

For all these reasons, Map Fair and IMCoS Symposium guests cannot be more comfortably and conveniently served during the scheduled events than by accommodations at the Brown Palace or Comfort Inn Downtown Hotels.

Breakfast is not included. Comfort Inn Map Fair Rooms are priced at US$129 (single & double). Plus 13.45% tax.
