Hotel & Travel

We are excited to hold the Continuums of Service (COS) conference on the beautiful, unique, and historic
Queen Mary Ship in Long Beach, CA.


We strongly encourage you to stay at the Queen Mary for several important reasons:

A unique experience! A historic landmark retaining much of its original art, woodwork and other special features, offers an experience different from any other conference hotel.

A great value! Enjoy the convenience of staying at the conference hotel while benefiting from a discounted rate of $159 per night.

A great networking opportunity! Lifelong collegial relationships and friendships have originated at COS. The Queen Mary offers wonderful spaces to network and spend time with colleagues.

Contact Angela Mischaikov at angela.mischaikov@wwu.edu or 360-650-4251 to reserve a room aboard the Queen Mary at the $159 rate.

Parking at The Queen Mary

For daily visitors not staying on the ship:   Upon entry to the parking lot, guests receive a voucher.  The voucher will not be needed as when they depart.  The guest tells the parking attendant which group they are with.  Our attendant will then collect the discounted rate from them.   Daily visitors do not  have in and out privileges. They pay each time they exit.

For those staying on the ship: Upon entry to the parking lot, guests receive a voucher.  The voucher will not be needed as when they depart.  Upon check-in to the hotel the staff will ask the guest if they have a car. If they answer  yes, the parking charges (at the group rate) are placed on their room folio. Their room key then also functions as their parking card.  Overnight guests have in  and out privileges.  They swipe their room key at the exit gates
