HOTEL RESERVATION DETAILS

All attendees must register for the Annual Meeting BEFORE making their hotel reservations. Once you have registered for the Annual Meeting, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to the hotel reservation web site. We encourage you to register early to ensure room availability.

The standard group room rate is $225 per night plus applicable state and local tax, currently 14.75 percent and a $3.00 occupancy tax for a single or double room.  The cut-off date for special group rate hotel room reservations is April 6, 2018 or before based on availability. We do expect to sell out our group room block so be sure to register early and secure your hotel room! The hotel offers a complimentary fitness center and complimentary wifi in hotel guest rooms for attendees booking within the PBS room block.

HOTEL POACHER / PIRATE ALERT

PBS has learned that unauthorized accommodation booking companies have contacted PBS Annual Meeting attendees offering discounted hotel rooms. They may go as far as to claim to be a “PBS partner” or the “official housing company.” This is false – PBS does not have a relationship with any company to book accommodations for the Annual Meeting.

The only method for obtaining lodging in the PBS room block is listed in the HOTEL RESERVATION DETAILS section above.

Rooms reserved by any method other than through the PBS-specified process for the room block do not have official contracts with PBS; therefore, we are unable to help if issues arise. Please take notes that:

  • PBS does not work with any accommodation booking company. We will never call or contact you to make a hotel reservation.
  • Trust your instincts: If it sounds too good to be true then it most likely is.
  • If you are unsure whether or not an offer is legitimate, please contact PBS before providing a company with any personal or business information.
  • If you receive an unsolicited call or email from any housing provider, contact PBS immediately.

Hotel Guarantee and Cancellation Policy

All Meeting attendees and guests will be responsible for paying their own room charges and incidental expenses. You may cancel your room no later than 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival to receive a full refund of any deposit.

Hotel check-in time is 3:00PM

Hotel check-out time is 12:00PM
