The City of Carmel is also offering vouchers for the hotel's Vivante French restaurant to attendees who register at the hotel between May 5th and May 8th (limited supply)
IMCL Executive Director Michael Mehaffy admires the view from the Hotel Carmichael of the Palladium concert hall (right) and the city center area of Carmel, where the Farmer's Market and other events are held. The area is full of shops, restaurants and other activities, as well as the Monon Parkway hike and bike trail.
If you're coming to the 57th International Making Cities Livable conference, you'll be stopping first at the Hotel Carmichael where we'll have conference registration. We hope you'll also consider staying there, since it's ideally close to the venue and other nearby activities. (While we will have shuttle buses to other hotels, we don't expect the same level of interaction and convenience.) Plus, its a great way to meet people and network, and get the most out of the conference experience.
The Carmichael is a Marriott "Autograph Collection" boutique hotel, meaning it's a unique place with top-shelf amenities. From the website:
"[The Carmichael] inspires a journey through history with all the modern-day amenities our guests desire. Here, we deliver a distinguished hospitality experience... situated in the heart of Carmel on the Monon Trail, a point of cultural and creative discovery. Make yourself at home in contemporary hotel accommodations conveniently located next to The Palladium, one of the greatest music halls of its time. Acclaimed dining, refined meeting spaces and daily live music define your stay at our boutique hotel. With stories to tell, Hotel Carmichael is set to surprise, entertain and inspire you with a memorable storybook experience."
We're coming up on the expiration of our courtesy hold and discount for attendees of the conference (ending Saturday, May 8th) and would love to see as many attendees as possible staying at the main venue area. The City of Carmel has also graciously offered a free meal voucher in the hotel's Vivante Restaurant, up to $25 value, for the next 25 who book. It's a little something to say thank you for helping us make our conference the most collegial and sociable event possible!
If you've registered for the conference, and you are ready to book at the Carmichael, call them at +1 317-688-1700 and let them know you are attending the conference and want the conference discount rate. If you're one of the first 25 to book after Wednesday, May 5th, you'll get the voucher on registration for the conference!
