33 New Montgomery, Suite 2070
San Francisco, CA 94105
Fax: 415/979-2270

Reservation Deadline: January 14, 1997
This date marks the last day the hotels are obligated to hold unreserved rooms specifically for Joint Meeting delegates. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Although Joint Meeting Housing will do everything possible to accommodate your reservation request, there is no guarantee that your preferred hotels or rates will be available. Delegates are strongly encouraged to submit their completed forms at the earliest possible date. Joint Meeting Housing will make every attempt to find accommodations at overflow hotels for delegates seeking reservations after the deadline or once all the Joint Meeting room blocks have been filled.

Assignment of Hotel Rooms
Joint Meeting Housing will assign rooms in order of receipt. If your first preference is unavailable, you will be assigned to the next available hotel on your list. If none of your preferred hotels are available, you will be assigned to an available hotel.

All rooms must be guaranteed with a $125 deposit. Please make checks payable to Convention Management Resources or complete the credit card information on the Hotel Reservation Form. Checks will be cashed and credit cards will be charged at the time the reservation is made. Refunds of deposits will only be given for cancellations received 72 hours prior to the arrival date.

Many of the Joint Meeting hotels have suites available. To reserve a suite, indicate your preference on the Hotel Reservation Form, being sure to include the appropriate number of connected bedrooms and your arrival and departure dates, and return the completed form as instructed. Suite reservations must be guaranteed with a $300 deposit, refundable if the reservation is canceled at least 72 hours prior to arrival. If you request a suite at a hotel that does not offer suites, or at a hotel that no longer has suites available, Joint Meeting Housing will contact you directly to clarify your preferences.

Confirmation of each delegate's hotel reservation will be sent by Joint Meeting Housing within two weeks of receipt of the completed Hotel Reservation Form. In the event that all room blocks are filled at the time the reservation request is received, Joint Meeting Housing will send notification within one week, offering suggestions for securing alternate accommodations in the San Francisco area.

All Joint Meeting room rates listed are subject to a state and local tax rate of 14%. This tax rate is subject to change without notice.

Exhibitors must follow the same instructions as all meeting delegates to secure housing in San Francisco. All individual housing requests, including special exhibitor blocks of 25 rooms or less, must be made with Joint Meeting Housing through use of the official Hotel Reservation Form. As a service to conference delegates, exhibitor blocks will be limited to 15 rooms at the San Francisco Marriott. Requests for hospitality suite reservations should also be made with Joint Meeting Housing through use of the Hotel Reservation Form.

Shuttle Service
Two shuttle routes will be set up to service delegates staying at the Joint Meeting hotels. Both routes will stop at the Marriott and the Moscone Convention Center. In addition, one route will stop at the Hilton while the other will stop at the Westin St. Francis and The Palace hotels. These hotels have been selected as hub hotels for the two shuttle routes. Delegates staying elsewhere are asked to walk a few blocks to one of the hub hotels in order to catch the convention shuttle. More detailed information about the shuttle service, including hours of operation and walking directions, will be available in the final program and at each conference hotel upon delegate check-in.

Although Joint Meeting Housing will not accept reservations over the telephone, delegates may call them at 800/450-5330 with questions about the housing process, or to make changes or cancellations to existing reservations. International delegates should call +1-415-979-2262.
