Hotel Information


The Monterey Tides

We meet at The Monterey Tides for all general sessions, workshops, luncheons, and book exhibits.

The Conference has booked a block of specially priced rooms; ask for “Young Rhetoricians’ Conference special rates” when you reserve your room. Please help us by staying at the hotel. To keep our conference rates low, we must book a certain number of room nights at the host hotel. Thank-you for your support.
