Hotel Information

BOMA has arranged for discounted hotel room rates for attendees and exhibitors at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown of $214/night plus taxes.

Registration is required before you can book a hotel room at BOMA's official conference hotels. This is necessary to ensure that housing is available to all registered attendees and exhibitors.

Reservations may only be made through BOMA's official housing provider, ConferenceDirect. The hotels will not accept reservations directly for BOMA's room blocks.  You will be prompted to make a hotel reservation after you register, or you may go to your dashboard (for exhibitors, the Exhibitor Registration site) to make a hotel reservation at a later time if you don't wish to make a reservation immediately. 
 


Hotel Cancellation Policy

The BOMA Housing Bureau, ConferenceDirect, will charge a $30.00 processing fee for cancellations starting May 1, 2020. Note that modifications can be made to an existing reservation at no charge by contracting the BOMA Housing Bureau by email: BOMA@conferencedirect.com or phone: 844-840-1835.

A one night room & tax deposit will be charged by the hotel as early as June 2, 2020. Cancellations made less than 72 hours prior to the scheduled arrival will be charged a fee equal to one night's room and tax by the hotel. This policy also applies for any guests who are a no-show for their reservation. Note that modifications can be made to a reservation at no charge, either on this website or by call the Housing Bureau.

Please note the hotel may charge an early departure fee in the event a guest who has a reservation checks out prior to the guest's reserved check out date. Guests wishing to avoid this fee must advise the Hotel at check-in of any change in the scheduled length of stay.
 


Exhibitor Sub-Block Policy

Exhibitors/Groups requiring 10 or more rooms may contact BOMA Housing Bureau, ConferenceDirect, to request a sub-block housing form by email: BOMA@conferencedirect.com.

IMPORTANT: To finalize your block, the BOMA Housing Bureau must receive the individual guest names by April 30, 2020. Effective May 1, 2020, the BOMA Housing Bureau will release unused rooms in your block. (An unused room is one that does not have the name of a registered attendee attached to it.)

Reservations: Once your block has been approved, you will receive an email confirmations with booking instructions on how to make your hotel reservations. After April 30, 2020 you will not be able to make any additional room request in your sub-block. However, you can still make modifications to existing reservations. You may also be able to make new individual reservation.

Changes, Cancellations, and Refunds: The last day to cancel rooms without penalty is April 30, 2020. Effective May 1, 2020 a $30 per room processing fee will apply for cancellations. Additionally, the hotels will charge one night's room and tax for rooms that are cancelled with less than 72 hours prior to the scheduled hours. You may continue to make changes and cancellations with the BOMA Housing Bureau until June 1, 2020 (subject to change). After this time, please contact the hotel directly for all changes and cancellations, but not until June 2, 2020.
