Lodging in Helena
Couple of options for lodging.
#1 – On campus we have a great apartment style dorm. Rooms will be available here at Trinity Hall (which will put you just steps from the training, reception and the moot sessions.) These rooms are furnished but will be plain (especially compared to when the students doll them up during the year). The cost will be $26 per person/per night. Find out more about Trinity Hall and Lodging questions here. Free highspeed wi-fi.
Since the conference is in early July, the campus will be very quiet as all but a few of our students will be on summer vacation. The rooms are doubles or quads and are great for groups, families or just singles.
#2 - There are some nice hotels in Helena that are a short drive from the campus, and with really no traffic to speak of, these make a great option as well. Carroll recommends the Wingate by Wyndham (pictured lower right) as a great friendly hotel.
#3 – Also just across the street from the campus is the very nice Best Western Great Northern Hotel.
#4 – Another great option is the Downtown Holiday Inn. This hotel is within walking distance of the campus (about 9-10 blocks away) and is located in the heart of downtown helena. It is very close (across the street) from the Blackfoot River Brewery and is located on the Downtown Helena walking mall.

A bit about Helena
Helena is the State Capital with a population in city limits of around 35,000 and if you include the entire Helena valley the population jumps to around 60,000 very nice folks. The location is great with mountains all around, a ski resort 25 minutes away and very nicely located in the center of the state with about a 4 hour drive to either the Majestic Glacier National Park, or the steaming plateau of Yellowstone National Park.
If you like hiking, fishing, horseback riding or even the arts (Helena is know as the “best little arts town in the west”) there is plenty to do here in the heart of the Rockies.
