Greenville (airport code PGV) is served by US Airways via the hub in Charlotte, NC. When you make flight reservations, be sure to go to Greenville NC and not Greenville SC.....the airport people say this is actually a common mistake.
You can also fly into Raleigh, NC (airport code RDU). Greenville is about a 100 mile drive, but you go 70 mph most of the way..
The conference is scheduled to allow you to take the late afternoon or early evening flight to Charlotte.
Book early. Flights into Greenville are limited.
We recommend the Holiday Inn Greenville. Room rates are $TBD per night for both king and 2 queen bed rooms. The hotel offers a full breakfast for $9.95 (not included in the room). This is the same hotel that has been used in past years (formerly City Hotel and Bistro), but it has changed names. (If you are an NC state employee, ask for the state rate. It is lower.)
Room block name: SCCI Department of English.
Call 877-271-2616 (the hotel direct numer is 252-355- 8300) to get the room rate and get placed in the room block.
The room block will be released about 30 days before conference and regular rack rates will apply for reservations made after that date.
A Hilton is next door to the Holiday Inn.
There are no hotels within walking distance of East Carolina Heart Institute.
There will be a shuttle between the hotel and the symposium. It will only make one trip each day.
