Lodging

There are two lodging options.

  1. On-campus housing (i.e. University of Hawaii (U-H) at Manoa campus conference housing and Lincon Hall at the East-West Center)
  2. Off-campus lodging (i.e. hotels near Waikiki beach)

*We encourage you to book early to guarantee your preferred accommodation. On-campus housing options are very reasonably priced. If you decide to stay at a hotel near Waikiki Beach, you are responsible for your commute and parking fees at the U-H.

On-campus

It is best to stay on-site during the meeting.

The University of Hawaii Campus Conference Housing:

The U-H campus conference housing has not released the rates for summer 2024 yet but here you can see the rates for 2023. Updated rates will be posted as soon as they are available.

On-campus conference housing at Lincon Hall: This is now sold out.

There is no commute and ample parking on campus. The rates are reasonable for staying Lincon Hall.

We arranged “call-in” reservation for this conference. Mention the ’61st Annual Meeting of The Clay Minerals Society and the 5th Asian Clay Conference’, which will be held at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, from June 3 to 6, 2024 and you will be given preferential rates. Contact details here.

Off-campus

Off-campus Lodging at Hotels near Waikiki Beach:

There are many hotels near Waikiki Beach. Please note that no rooms at hotels near the beach have been blocked for this conference, so the rate is higher than the on-campus housing. You can pick one based on your needs via travel agency sites (e.g. Expedia, booking.com, etc.). Summer is a busy season in Honolulu, so we encourage you to book early to guarantee your preferred accommodation. When you book your hotel, be sure to check the distance from the campus.
