Salt Lake City airport now has a direct flight from Paris. The cab ride from the ariport to downtown Salt-Lake City or the campus costs from $25 to $30. A bus leaves the airport for the City Center every 30 minutes during the day and every 60 minutes after 7:00 pm. One way fare is $1.60. Bus stops are located in the parking structure between Terminal One and Terminal Two. If you stay at the Embassy Suite Hotel you can use the shuttle service they offer to and from the airport.

Salt-Lake-City is at an altitude of 1300m (4200ft). In January-February the temperature might be as low as -10C and snow in town is common. Check the
weather forecast and pack you suitcase accordingly.


The University of Utah Guest House does not have any availabilities left. The Marriott Salt Lake City Marriott University Park Hotel might still be an option but we made a 15 room group reservation at the Embassy Suite Hotel from January 28th until January 31st. You need to book the room before December 28th by indicating you will be attending the Stellar Intensity Interferometry U of U meeting (Group/Convention Code: SII) in order to benefit from the special University rate of $114/night. Conditions are specified here and here. If you plan to stay longer than just for the time of the meeting the same rate would apply for the duration of your stay. The Embassy Suite Hotel is located in downtown Salt-Lake-City and I will organize to pick you up in the morning each day of the workshop for a ride to the University.
