    Hotel Accommodations

    PRIM&R has arranged room blocks for attendees at the hotels below. These hotels are within two blocks of the convention center. Depending on the hotel, the walk to/from the convention center is 8-10 minutes.

    Always book directly with these hotels. PRIM&R is not using a housing provider. If you are contacted by an organization claiming to be able to make your hotel arrangements for you, do not give them your information.

     

    The SBER-AER19 room blocks at the Sheraton, Marriott, and Westin are largely sold out (see details below; per diem rooms still available). A limited number of rooms have been added at the Hilton Back Bay Hotel (see below). We also encourage attendees to continue to check the blocks at the Sheraton, Marriott, and Westin until the cut-off date of 10/29 in the event that there are cancellations (call hotels directly), and to look at non-conference block options in the area for hotels.
