Sixth International Conference on Immersion and Dual Language Education

Location and Accommodations

Conference Location

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis Hotel located at 1300 Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.

Directions can be found on the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis website.

Hotel Reservations

A block of sleeping rooms has been reserved for the conference at the special rate of $199/night + tax (single/double occupancy).

The cut-off date for the special rate is Sept. 27, 2016. There are several large events taking place in Minneapolis during the conference so it is very likely that the hotel will sell out well before the cut-off date. You are encouraged to book your room as soon as possible!

  • Book online using the Hyatt Hotel Reservation website.
  • Call Hyatt Central Reservations at: 1-888-421-1442 (toll-free) and ask for reservations for the CARLA Immersion Conference 2016.


Note (9/9/16): Rooms for Saturday night at the Hyatt are sold out, though reservations change constantly and it is possible that some may come available if you keep checking back. There are some rooms still available for Thursday and Friday nights as of the posting of this note.


Good news! CARLA got a small block of rooms for Thursday/Friday/Saturday nights at the Hilton Hotel at 1001 Marquette Avenue, just three blocks away from the Hyatt. The special room rate is $209/night for single/double occupancy. The cut-off date for registration is Sept. 29, 2016.


  • Book online using the Hilton Hotel Reservation website.
  • Call Hilton Central Reservations at: 1-888-933-5363 (toll-free) and use the three-letter code, CIC (CARLA Immersion Conference) to get the reduced hotel rate.


Parking is available in a covered parking ramp adjacent to the hotel for a cost of $19/day with in/out privileges.

Notes: This parking location does not accept cash or American Express. Motorcycles are not allowed and vans over 6'6" will not clear. The ramp is not owned by the hotel and there are no special discounts for the conference.

Getting From the Airport

The Hyatt Regency Minneapolis has a special rate for shared ride services from the airport to the hotel with SuperShuttle at a cost of $15/one-way or $26/round-trip.

A cab to the Hotel will cost approximately $45 one way. For more information on transportation options see the hotel's transportation webpage.
