NEW: If you plan on staying in the same hotel as the venue itself, you can get a Portland State discount on your rate. Just book at the link here and use the promo code "A1234" to receive the discount. Military, AAA, and AARP discounts are better than this though, so don't use this code if you qualify for one of those.
The competition will be held in the Willamette Ballroom at the University Place Hotel on Portland State University's campus.
Parking in the hotel's lot is $3 an hour, $12 a day, or $15 overnight. Many lots on the PSU campus offer a much cheaper hourly and daily rate. A map of available parking options on PSU's campus can be found here, and a list of rates for each of these locations can be found here.
If you live locally, transit may be the easiest and cheapest option for you to come to the competition. The SW Lincoln St stop on the Orange line is right in front of the venue. The venue is also quite close to the Green line, and is two stops away from the Red/Blue lines. Several bus lines also serve Portland State. Check your transit directions using the map tool above.
