Sheraton Boston Hotel
39 Dalton Street
Boston, Massachusetts 02199 USA
AOAC has negotiated a special guestroom rate of $205.00 USD single/double per night plus taxes for a standard room. There will not be a block of rooms at the US Federal Government Rate as that rate is higher than our contracted group rate of $205.00 per night.
Use the link above (https://book.passkey.com/go/AOAC2021) to receive the special rate; do not book directly on the Sheraton Boston website. To make a reservation by phone from the US, dial 800-325-3535; if calling from any other country, dial 617-236-2000. Ask for Reservations and state “AOAC Annual Meeting”.
A credit card is required at the time of booking to guarantee your reservation; however the card will not be charged. Cancellations must be received three days (72 hours) prior to confirmed arrival date to avoid a penalty fee equal to one night’s room and tax.
The AOAC block of rooms at the discounted rate will be available until they are sold out or until the cut-off date of August 14, 2021. After that date, reservations will be accepted on a space- and rate- available basis only. These low rates are not available through the hotel’s website.
A special “thank you” to our Annual Meeting attendees who have booked their room reservations at the Annual Meeting hotel over the past few years. Because of you, AOAC is able to secure low rates for its room block.
AOAC contracts for a specific number of rooms at competitive nightly rates. Filling a room block is important because it provides a “report card” on the Association to future meeting sites. By establishing a history of consistently filling the room block, AOAC can secure both competitive room rates and larger blocks in subsequent years. Those rooms that go unused by AOAC attendees are charged back to AOAC and cause AOAC to raise registration rates to cover the expenses of hotel rooms left vacant.
