The ASR Meeting Hotel for 2014 is the JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square, 500 Post St., San Francisco, CA 94102, which is located just a couple blocks from the main ASA conference hotels. The ASR rate is $219 per night, there will be no additional charge for triple/quad occupancy, and internet access is free inside the guest rooms (a $14.95 daily per room value). These are fairly reasonable rates for a luxury hotel in the cultural heart of the city. According to ASR’s contract with the JW Marriott, ASR members should be able to enjoy these low rates for up to three days pre and post conference dates (8/12/2014 – 8/16/2014), depending on room availability at the time of booking. 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 JW Marriott 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 Monday, July 22, 2014.
All reservations must be accompanied by a first night room deposit or guaranteed with a major credit card.
Guests may make their reservations as early as they wish using one of the following methods:
Local Guests: 1-800-605-6568
International Guests: 001-800-605-6568
(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 JW Marriott has a direct, positive financial impact on ASR.
