*The CEEL Summer Symposium will provide free shuttle pick-up and drop-off each day from the preferred hotel locations. The shuttle will bring you from your hotel to The John Cooper School, a beautiful campus about 8 minutes away from the Waterway area of The Woodlands. These three hotels offer upscale, modern accommodations within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and cafes.
Should you choose other accommodations, please note you will need to find your own transportation to the John Cooper School each day. Free parking is available at the school if you prefer to drive yourself, and Uber and Lyft are additional options.


How to Get There

The nearest airport is Houston Bush (IAH), a 35-minute drive from The Woodlands. You can fly into Hobby Airport, but it is 30-60 minutes further away from The Woodlands by car, depending on traffic. Whichever airport you fly into, you will need to get a Lyft, Uber, private car, or car rental from the airport to your hotel. You can also contact your hotel to see if they offer a shuttle to/from the airport.
