Why book through the ASHHRA Housing Bureau?
ASHHRA has contracted a block of rooms at discounted group rates at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel and assumes financial risk by contracting with the hotel for a large room block. If our room block is not met, ASHHRA is financially liable for penalties. By reserving rooms at the Sheraton Seattle via the authorized ASHHRA Housing Bureau, attendees and exhibitors continue to help ASHHRA leverage the most economical rates for future conferences in desirable cities.
Beware of Fraudulent Housing/Travel Claims
You may be solicited by other companies to book your hotel room or make travel arrangements for the ASHHRA annual conference. Such companies are not affiliated with and are not sponsored or approved by ASHHRA and the AHA to provide these services. ASHHRA and AHA will not be responsible for any actions or omissions of such companies.
