This year, RubyConf is cruising down the Ohio River to the Queen City itself, Cincinnati, OH! We'll be in the heart of the city, with the conference at the Duke Energy Convention Center, and our conference hotel only steps away at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati.
We have a dedicated hotel room block for RubyConf 2016 attendees at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati! The discounted rooms are $179/night, and are available through Fri, Oct 14.
From the Cincinnati airport, the TANK Airporter bus line #2X (schedule here) will take you directly into downtown Cincinnati. It takes about 30 minutes and costs $2.00, one-way. Exiting the bus at the 5th/Elm stop will put you right at the Hyatt Regency and Duke Energy CC.
You can also take a taxi for $34, which should take about 20 minutes.
Cincinnati has a fairly compact downtown filled with restaurants, bars, and attractions, and walking around it is a breeze!
There is also bus service around the city, and there will be a newly opened (as of Sept 2016) streetcar that attendees can ride for a different perspective on the major sites! The streetcar can be boarded at 5th/Walnut (3 blocks away) and costs $1 for 2 hours.
