Why Book a Room Through ASHA?

By reserving your hotel through ASHA's room blocks, you receive these important benefits:

  • Price: We've secured the lowest available hotel rates.
  • Hotels/Community: Hotels have been hand-picked to meet your needs, also allowing for informal meet-and-greet time with colleagues and friends.
  • Support: We're your advocate before, during, and after your stay.
  • Reputation: The housing block illustrates ASHA's value to the city.

We know that attending Connect to enhance your professional education is important and we strive to provide convenient housing options at competitive rates. If you find a lower rate at a hotel in our block than what we offer, please contact us at registration@asha.org.

Policies

All hotel reservations require a valid credit card at the time of booking in order to be confirmed. Major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Diners Club, and Discover) are accepted. Hotels will not charge an advance deposit to the credit card.

The cutoff date to make a hotel reservation is June 15, 2017. After this date, if you need to cancel or change your reservation, you must contact the hotel directly, but not less than 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date. If you do not cancel your reservation 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date, your first night's room and tax is subject to charge. Cancelling your hotel reservation does not automatically cancel your Connect 2017 conference registration. (To cancel your conference registration, contact ashaconnectregistration@spargoinc.com no later than July 1, 2017.)

Please Don't Be a "No-Show"

If you must cancel your plans to attend Connect 2017, please remember to cancel your conference registration and hotel reservation as quickly as possible. ASHA strives to obtain the largest number of hotel rooms at the lowest possible rate for attendees. Hotels are reluctant to commit large room blocks and offer lower rates if ASHA has a high no-show rate (number of attendees with reservations who do not show up and do not cancel reservations). If a reservation is canceled properly, it will help you avoid charges and allows another ASHA attendee the chance to book the room. Thank you!

Beware of Unauthorized Hotel Solicitations

ASHA has been alerted that a housing company has reached out to some ASHA members implying that it is a partner of ASHA or it is ASHA's housing company. ASHA is not using the services of a housing company for the 2017 Connect conferences. Reservations are being accepted directly by the two official hotels contracted by ASHA, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans and the Holiday Inn New Orleans–Downtown Superdome.

Please know that most reputable housing companies do not solicit or initiate contact with you and that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies may have costly consequences. Other companies may not provide the prices, service, and reliability available from the hotels and partners with whom ASHA contracts. If you are contacted by a company that claims to be our housing provider, please immediately e-mail us at ashaconnect@asha.org.
