Hotel Reservations Procedure
ASHRM has selected Visit Indy as the “official” housing bureau for this year’s conference.  Discounted group rates are being offered at the ASHRM conference hotels only to conference attendees who reserve rooms on or before September 23, 2015.
To qualify for these group rates, hotel reservations can be made through the ASHRM housing link (online only) after registering for the conference. Through this website you may book, modify or cancel your hotel reservations at any time and receive updated information about the event or housing. Details will be included with your conference registration confirmation. Requested room types are based upon availability at check-in and not a guarantee.

Hotel Information
ASHRM has selected a great assortment of hotels for the conference, all full service, and connected to the Indiana Convention Center where the conference functions will take place.  The hotels are all located across the street from the convention center and are connected via the network of pedestrian skywalks throughout downtown Indianapolis.  Enjoy close proximity to several downtown Indy attractions and an abundance of shopping and dining.  Book rooms early to ensure you have a room at our three host hotels.

The hotel where you have made your reservation will send you a confirmation.  Please review it carefully for accuracy and keep a copy for your records.

Room Rates/Taxes
To take advantage of the special ASHRM Annual Conference rates, be sure to book your reservation on or before September 23, 2015. After September 23, the ASHRM room blocks will be released. Reservation requests will be honored based on availability and at the hotels’ prevailing rates.  All rates are per room night, are based on Single or Double occupancy, and are subject to a 17 percent tax which is not included in the hotel rate and will be applied at check out (subject to change at any time.). Please note: The Westin will charge an additional fee of $20 per person for triple and quadruple occupancy. Please make the hotels aware of any special needs you may have and they will assign specific room types and any other requests at check-in, based on availability.

Please have your credit card information on hand upon booking your reservation.  Each hotel requires a credit card to guarantee the reservation.
