The 2019 ATE Conference will be held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert Street, NW, Washington, DC 20008.
Hotel Room Reservations
All participants are responsible for making their own hotel reservations. The hotel room block is limited to registered ATE Conference participants. AACC has one large room block at the Omni Shoreham Hotel (2500 Calvert Street, NW, Washington DC) and a small overflow room block at the Marriott Wardman Park (2660 Woodley Rd NW, Washington, DC 20008). You will receive a hyperlink to make your hotel reservation in your conference registration confirmation email once your registration is complete. Hotel reservations will not be accepted by phone.
Please note you will need to provide a credit card number to guarantee your room and cover any incidental fees accrued during your stay. Please be sure to register for the conference and make your own hotel reservations through the link provided in your conference registration email before Thursday, September 26. If reservations are not made by September 26 (the cutoff date for guaranteed room reservations and special conference rate) you will be responsible for any difference in room costs above the conference rates.
AACC will cover lodging expenses for designated participants: two rooms for projects and two rooms for centers for the nights of October 23 and 24. Colleges or institutions with more than two ATE grants will receive lodging expenses for a total of five rooms for the nights of October 23 and 24. These rooms will be assigned to be billed to the AACC master account following the September 26 cut-off date, but incidental expenses are the responsibility of the attendees.
Hotel Costs and Designated Participants
The participants that register as complimentary on a grant (two for projects and two for centers) will automatically have the cost of their hotel rooms for the nights of October 23 and October 24 charged to the AACC master account. If a project or center would like to assign their complimentary room nights to individuals that are not receiving the complimentary registrations as part of their grants, please email that request to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 26 so AACC can properly code the hotel reservation list.
All participants are required to make their own hotel reservations through the link provided in their registration confirmation email; and complimentary rooms will be assigned to the master account following the September 26 cut-off date.
Additional Room Costs
The cost of additional rooms (reserved by September 26) is $263/night (single/double) plus tax and will be billed to the individual. Meeting participants who would like to come early or stay longer may do so and pay the cost of additional room nights at the rate of $263. The hotels will honor this room rate three days prior and three days after the conference dates subject to availability.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are to receive a complimentary hotel room for two nights, please double check that your room has been coded correctly upon hotel check-in. If your room has not been properly coded to the master account, please report it to the conference registration desk so we can correct the billing prior to your check-out.
