For those staying at Silver Cloud, the Talaris Conference Center is 1 mile from your hotel. We have a large van to shuttle participants in the morning and evening. Additionally your hotel has a shuttle for guests. The Silver Cloud Inn is located next to the University Village, which has many restaurants and shops. It is also closer to the University of Washington campus.

Reaching your hotel. We will try to coordinate airport transportation. If you haven’t already done so, please fill out the required participant survey now to give us your flight information as well as your meal choice for the conference dinner. If flight schedules allow it, we will drive a conference shuttle to and from the airport. Otherwise, SeaTac airport has many transportation options. A taxi to your hotel will cost around $60. An alternative is the ShuttleExpress, which requires a short wait and costs around $20 per person. ShuttleExpress can be reserved online and confirmed at their desk at the airport on arrival.
