Late-Breaking

Walking to the meeting: Walk out the Harvard St entrance of the hotel (near the elevators), turn right, and then right again onto Beacon St. The McNamara Center will be ahead and on the left. Or you can walk out the main entrance of the hotel, turn left, and the left again onto Walnut St; the McNamara Center will be ahead and on your right. Or you can take the tunnel: go up the escalator in the lobby, turn left and walk straight through the glass doors and take the elevator to the Lower Level.

    Note: due to construction on Washington Avenue, I'd recommend exiting MN-55 at MN-35W, then exit on University Ave SE. Turn right on Church St, then an immediate left on Pillsbury Dr, then follow Pillsbury -- it winds around and changes change to Harvard St SE -- and turn left into the hotel just before reaching Washington St, which is blocked.
