American Sociological Association: 2012 Annual Meeting Accommodations
The 107th ASA Annual Meeting will be held at the Colorado Convention Center and the Hyatt Regency Denver. The Hyatt and the Colorado Convention Center will host all ASA program sessions. ASA registration and satelite office, book exhibits, Employment Service, the ASA Bookstore will be located at the Colorado Convention Center. ASA Child Care and all plenary sessions will be located at the Hyatt.
The current national campaign calling for the boycotts of individual Hyatt hotel properties does not involve the Hyatt hotel that ASA is using in Denver. ASA has contracted guest rooms and meeting space at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. That facility’s union agreements are in good-standing through February 2013. ASA has no contracts with the two other Hyatt properties—the Grand Hyatt and the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center—that are involved in the current dispute.
Blocks of sleeping rooms for ASA meeting attendees have been arranged at:
|Hotel||Distance to CCC|
|Hyatt Regency Denver (headquarter hotel)||50 steps|
|Hilton Garden Inn||1 block|
|Crowne Plaza Denver||2 blocks|
|The Curtis||2 blocks|
|Denver Marriott City Center||3 blocks|
All housing services are being managed through, Connections Housing. Booking a room in the ASA room blocks is an important way to support the Association and ultimately keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. Staying “within the block” is also more convenient and helps you stay connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the headquarter hotel during the meeting.
Reservations may be made online via the link to the ASA housing site powered by Connections Housing. It may take a moment for the housing page to load, depending on the speed of your internet connection and browser choice.

Please be vigilant if dealing with any companies or services other than Connections Housing that imply or claim an affiliation with ASA. We have been made aware of other housing companies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. Unfortunately, some past attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these companies and have either: lost their significant deposits; been relocated with little or no warning; have not had the guest rooms they thought they had booked; or have not received reservations at the hotel they had thought were confirmed. This has caused great hardships to these companies and individuals. Reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing will be at your own risk.
Accessiblity Housing Requests. When making a hotel reservation, you may request audio, visual, or mobility assistance. If you want ASA Meeting Services to verify that your accessibility request(s) will be honored, please send your accessibility request to ASA after you have made your reservation. Send accessibility requests to: ASA Meeting Services, 1430 K Street, NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20005-4701; fax 202-638-0882; firstname.lastname@example.org.
