78th Annual Meeting

2016 Hotel Reservations

The ASR Meeting Hotel for 2016 is the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, located at 515 Madison Street, Seattle, WA, 98104, just a 10-minute walk from the ASA Meeting held at the Washington State Convention Center.  The ASR rate is $227 per night for single/double occupancy, $237 per night for triple occupancy, and $247 per night for quadruple occupancy.   Internet access is free inside the guest rooms, a value of $12.95 per day.  These are fairly reasonable rates for a luxury hotel in the cultural heart of the city.  These rates are available for a limited number of rooms three days before the conference and three days after the conference.  The best way to guarantee the availability of a room at these rates during your anticipated stay is to book your room early because the number of rooms that the hotel makes available at the ASR rate outside of the official program dates is lower than the number of rooms it makes available at the ASR rate during the official program dates.

Important note regarding reservations — The early bird gets the worm!

There is no cost to you for making your hotel reservations before you learn that your paper proposal has been accepted, because hotel reservations can always be cancelled.  A good piece of advice is to make your hotel reservations as early as possible, and then if you later learn that you are not on the program or that you cannot attend the conference, you can always cancel your hotel reservations at that time.

The cutoff date for making ALL reservations is Wednesday, July 27, 2016.

Guests may make their reservations as early as they wish using one of the following methods:

(When calling, guests should request a room under the Association for the Sociology of Religion room block to reserve at the discounted rate.)

Please note that ASR’s ability to rent meeting room space at an affordable price is dependent on our members registering at the conference hotel.  Your decision to stay at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel has a direct, positive financial impact on ASR.
