Due to the extremely heavy 2015 summer demand for hotel rooms in Brookings, DLGC was unable to block-book rooms at a special rate for this meeting. If you plan on staying overnight, hotels say that they started releasing previously reserved rooms at the end of May. If you need help with contact information for Brookings hotels, please let Mina know and she can provide some phone numbers.
