2002 Seminar Lodging

Many fine Key West hotels, inns and B&Bs offer substantially discounted rates to Seminar and Workshop attendees. Be sure to mention the Seminar when you ask for rates. We encourage you to book early, as only a limited number of rooms have been set aside. It is often possible to save the cost of the Seminar by using the discounted rates.
