Can you recommend a great fan or portable air cooler for travel?

Every July, my kids and I spend a week at a conference that is held at various college campuses. This means we are usually in a dorm with no air conditioning, in a room with windows on only one side, so no hope of cross breezes. We muddle through every year with a couple of old fans, but I'd like to buy something that would make our stay more comfortable. I want either a powerful fan that could do a great job of pulling the cool night air in once the sun goes down, or an in-room cooler like some I've seen online that use water evaporation. I haven't bought a fan since the 90s, and designs seem to have changed a lot, so I could use some guidance.
We travel in our minivan, so space is not much of an issue. And since we expect to keep attending this conference, I'm willing to spend a little money to get something really effective. Recommendations?
