The Wylie Center is located 20 miles north of Boston and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean at Endicott College. Convention participants will enjoy private guestrooms with private bathrooms at the Inn adjacent to all dining and program space.

Or select one of two local hotels (Hampton Inn, Salem, MA, or Sonesta Select, Danvers, MA) for WRN members who are not staying for all three nights or require more than one room.

In addition, the hotel adds this advice:
A taxi or an Uber would definitely be the quickest and easiest way. Even after taking public transportation to Beverly, you need to get a taxi to the property from the train station. Public transportation includes a lot of train changes, stairs, and escalators. Links for the mbta map are below.
Something else to keep in mind- tickets
- The shuttle from the airport to the blue line MBTA station is free
- You need to purchase a ticket to use the subway (blue line, green line)
- You need to purchase a different ticket to use the commuter rail (purple line)
Public Transportation Route:
Start At Logan Airport
- Take shuttle to Airport MBTA Station
- Take Outbound Blue Line to Government Center Stop
- Switch to Green Line going toward Medford/ Tufts (North Station)
- At North Station switch to the Commuter Rail (Purple)
- Take the Newburyport/Rockport Line to Beverly
- Stop Options would be Montserrat or Beverly Depot
- Montserrat is only a flag stop, so the rider needs to let the conductor know or they won’t stop there
- Take taxi to The Wylie Center
