University and School Partnerships
“Developing a vision for teacher preparation
for the 21st Century”

ACE-DHH will begin the 21st century by convening in the Historic French Quarter of New Orleans, the home of The Big Easy and wonderful food. You’ll be staying where such characters as Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, and Truman Capote stayed when they were in town.   You’ll be within walking distance of virtually everything visitors to New Orleans like to do.

The Hotel Monteleone will serve as our meeting place.  The Monteleone is an historic 114-year-old family-owned hotel on Royal Street in the middle of the Quarter. The meeting rooms in the hotel are decorative yet functional and comfortable as are the guest rooms.  The convention rate is $160 per room, per night plus tax.  This is a good rate for a French Quarter hotel in the spring.  If you require special accommodations or features in your room, please let the hotel know in advance. ACE-DHH has a block of 70 rooms.  I would suggest that you call in your reservation soon.  Rooms not reserved by February 28 will revert back to the hotel for general reservations at the non-conference rate. The Monteleone phone number is 1-800-535-9595 (V/T).

So leave your cares at home and bring a good appetite!
