Traveling to Spokane, Washington

Spokane is located on interstate I-90, 110 miles from the Canadian border and 18 miles from Idaho. It is the largest city between Seattle and Minneapolis.

Spokane International Airport (GEG) is serviced by Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, Southwest, and United Airlines. Nonstop service is offered to 17 destinations, including Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, and LAX.

Spokane is accessible by rail via Amtrak’s Empire Builder route (Chicago - St. Paul/Minneapolis - Spokane - Portland/Seattle). It is also reachable by Greyhound Bus.

General Assembly Housing Reservation System

By using the General Assembly (GA) Housing Reservation System, attendees earn meeting space for the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) at the hotels and the convention center. Additionally, the UUA is able to negotiate on behalf of our block of attendees for sustainability and accessibilities requirements. We are also able to assist attendees booking rooms within our block with housing issues they may encounter during General Assembly.

We are working to finalize contracts with 2019 providers; i​nformation will be posted here as it becomes available.

Housing reservations open March 1, 2019.

Home Hospitality

UUs from local congregations sometimes serve as host families for Home Hospitality, which is B&B style accommodation with local residents.

Rates vary, but a guideline might be $35/night for a sofa, $65/night for one person and $75/night per couple sharing a room. Proceeds will benefit local UU congregations and organizations. Guests will receive booking confirmation and host information by email. (Note: Some of the hosts may not live near public transportation and a few homes might be too far for taxis. Guests will have to have their own cars or arrange for rides; some hosts may provide some transportation to GA events.)


The GA Forum is divided into separate discussions about housing, sharing rooms, ride-shares, first-timer questions, being a delegate, the election, and other topics. You can read just the topics you are interested in and/or receive email notifications about some or all topics. The GA Forum will reopen in March.

Reserving Accessible Housing

Those in need of accessible hotel accommodations make reservations using the same housing reservations system as all other GA attendees. Read Instructions for Reserving an ADA Room.
