Journal entry by Jane Hawkins

If you plan to attend Vonda's Memorial, will need a place to stay, and room prices are a problem, some locals are offering space in their homes. Please contact and we will see what we can do.

If you need to stay at a hotel, our diligent and resourceful Suzle has some reasonable choices for you.
We have arranged for a small courtesy block at the Talaris Convention Center, the closest hotel to the Mountaineers location. If you want to reserve, please do so immediately. This block is not guaranteed, so if the hotel is booked up, you will not get a room.
To reserve, call the Talaris main line at 206-268-7000 and use the code “Vonda’s Memorial”. You will be offered a special rate of $20 off their best available rate at the time the reservation is made for any night between June 7th – 10th. A credit card to secure all reservations is required, and you will be able to cancel up to 48 hours without penalty. The room rate includes parking, Wi-Fi, and a many-choice continental breakfast.
For other nearby hotels, we set up a special link to information, but it reverts back to its original home page, so please check travel sites like TripAdvisor, and set it up for hotels and B&Bs, for 1-2 miles near Seattle's University District (the area nearest to the Mountaineers), and your other parameters.  
NOTE: The Hotel Graduate (for former Hotel Deca, site of many Potlatches and Corflus) replaced the penthouse suite with a new bar/restaurant. It is called The Mountaineers Club. If you search for the University District hotels, note that this is not The Mountaineers, which is on Sandpoint Way -
