Travel and Housing


The ASA Housing Service will open February, 20, 2018. The deadline to make a reservation for the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown, Le Meridien, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, and the Ritz-Carlton is July 17, 2018. Booking a room within the ASA room block is an important way to support the association and ultimately keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. Staying “in the block” is also more convenient and helps keep you connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotels during the convention. ASA does not work with any third parties or housing bureaus for convention housing so please beware of anyone contacting you and claiming to represent ASA. View map of hotel locations.
