ASHA-negotiated rates (competitive with online offerings) are available through June 28, or until the room blocks sell out. Rooms are limited, so act fast! If you are planning to stay longer than the dates included in our hotel block, please contact the ASHA Connect Housing Center at 877-585-6005 or ashaconnecthousing@spargoinc.com for assistance.

Unauthorized Housing Providers

Sometimes, ASHA is alerted that an unauthorized housing company has reached out to some ASHA members, claiming to be a partner of ASHA or even falsely claiming to be ASHA's housing company. Please know that a legitimate company would not call or contact you unless you had initiated contact first. If you are contacted by a company that is not our official housing provider, or if you are ever unsure whether or not a company is legitimate, please immediately e-mail us at registration@asha.org. Here are some things to be aware of:

  • Many of these agencies cannot actually guarantee a reservation because they do not have contracts for room blocks with the ASHA hotels. They will contact a housing wholesaler to see if anything is available that can be resold to you.
  • Even legitimate wholesalers cannot knowingly book conference attendees in the conference room block. Only an ASHA Housing representative can book within our block of rooms. If the hotel determines a conference attendee has been solicited or contacted by a wholesaler, the room rate may be increased to match or exceed the group rate or the room reservation may be canceled. A rate quote from a room broker is not a guaranteed rate.
  • Rooms booked through unauthorized housing companies must sometimes be fully prepaid. Rather than a one-night deposit, an unauthorized company may require full payment at the time of booking.
  • Reservation confirmations and numbers are often not available from these companies until less than a week before the arrival date. Even then, this may not guarantee that a room will be available when you arrive.
  • Generally, these companies cannot secure a large block of rooms, but instead only one or two at a time. Exhibitors should be particularly wary, since they often need to book a group of rooms for their staff who will be exhibiting during the conference.
  • Name changes on room reservations with unofficial wholesalers/room brokers may be difficult to make.
  • ASHA may not be able to assist attendees who have reserved rooms outside the block if problems result from booking through an unauthorized company. ASHA contracts with the hotels in our block and includes clauses to protect our attendees should the hotel oversell the rooms or should any issues arise with reservations.

Air and Train Travel

Baltimore is serviced by three major airports— Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport—and Baltimore's Penn Station for rail service. The city is perched right next to Interstate 95, making it a convenient and short drive from many Eastern U.S. locations.
