Accommodations: Landmark Guest Rooms--Union Theological Seminary

A limited number of Landmark Guest rooms (25) starting at $135. plus tax are available at Union Theological Seminary, which is right across the street from Barnard College. Please see all the information below. Everyone says these accommodations are very nice. But they get filled up very quickly for conferences and need to be booked very early or preferably immediately! Ideal would be to reserve a whole block of rooms since you cannot expect to pay much less than that in NYC.
