Sixteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium (ANTS XVI)
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
July 15–19, 2024
There are many options for accomodation in Cambridge across a broad price range. Room rates for July 2024 are currently low relative to the average prices in recent years, but that may change as the summer approaches. We urge anyone who is thinking about attending ANTS XVI to make a reservation now. Most hotels in Cambridge offer reservations that allow free cancellation with 3 days notice (but be aware that the very cheapest rates may not allow cancellation).
When thinking about location, it is worth noting that Red Line provides easy access to MIT, and it is well worth considering options that are close to the Central, Harvard, Porter stations north of the Kendall/MIT stop, from which you can get to MIT within 10-15 minutes.
Below is a list of hotels or bed and breakfasts that are close to MIT or one of the Red Line stations mentioned above that are currently offering reasonable rates, but there are many other options, depending on your budget. It is worth shopping around, as prices can vary signficiantly over time (both up and down, but the general trend is likely to be up).
- Le Méridien Boston Cambridge (10 min walk to MIT)
- Hyatt Regency Boston/Cambridge (15 min walk to MIT)
- Irving House (10 min walk to Harvard Square)
- Prentiss House (6 min walk to Porter Square)
- Porter Square Hotel (3 min walk to Porter Square)
- Hotel 1868 (1 min walk to Porter Square)
For those seeking a lower cost option, we have reserved a large block of rooms in Boston University's summer conference residence hall at 10 Buick Street, which is located 1.5 miles from MIT (a long walk but an easy bike ride along the Charles river, or you can take the MBTA bus or subway).
These are private bedrooms in a shared apartment with a common living room and kitchen with 4 bedrooms and 2 shared bathrooms in each suite. Rooms are $97.50 per night. If you are part of a group of four that would like to room together, you can indicate this preference in the reservation form.
