Hotel Reservation Deadline: Monday, April 23, 2012

The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City is approaching a sellout situation over the conference dates.

In the event you are unable to make a reservation at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City over your preferred dates, please contact A Room with a View (1-800-780-4343) for assistance in making a reservation at a nearby hotel. They will secure the lowest available rates at hotels within walking distance of the Doubletree. This is a complimentary service being offered to attendees of the 2012 SIAM Conference on Imaging Science.

In the event that rooms become available at Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City due to cancellations, A Room With A View will notify conference attendees and help transfer reservations back to the Doubletree in the order in which they were booked.

Location

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City is centrally located in the heart of Philadelphia’s cultural district on the Avenue of the Arts. Across from the Academy of Music, this comfortable high-rise is within walking distance of many of Philadelphia’s attractions including the Pennsylvania Convention Center, City Hall, and the Liberty Bell. Enjoy a casual lunch or dinner in Standing O, their Bar/Bistro. Breakfast is available each morning in Academy Café, their restaurant on the second floor. 

Did you know?

Your support in staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference.  SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is then charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.

Reservations

SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.

The group rate is guaranteed until the cutoff date unless the block fills prior to that.  If there are rooms available after the cutoff date, they will be available at the best rate offered at that time.

Reservation Deadline – Monday, April 23, 2012 (or until the room block is filled)

Single/Double     $179.00 per night plus 15.2% tax
Student rate        $135.00 per night plus 15.2% tax
