"The Clinical Virology Symposium provides an intimate setting where you are able to hear about a variety of virology topics that are pertinent to you and your work. It allows ample opportunity to network with colleagues and leaders in the field and learn about new diagnostic assays that are available. It is the perfect blend of everything that you would want in a scientific symposium."
Anthony Tran, Director of Policy and Operations, NYC DOHMH, Bureau of the Public Health Laboratory

Hotel & Travel


The 2017 Clinical Virology Symposium (CVS) is offering a selection of three hotel choices to fit your preference.

The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa is on the quiet side of the river and adjacent to the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center. This hotel's highlights include award-winning golf, tennis, and spa; and it is just a quick water taxi ride away from Savannah's best dining, nightlife, and attractions. Complimentary ferry service runs regularly from 7:10 a.m. to 11:50 p.m., taking less than five minutes to cross the river. 

The Hyatt Regency and Hotel Indigo are in the heart of Savannah within walking distance to dining, nightlife, and historic sites and attractions. Both hotels are located across the river from the Savannah International Trade & Conventiion Center, which is accessible via the complimentary ferry service that docks a short walk away from the hotels. Complimentary ferry service runs regularly from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m., taking less than five minutes to cross the river. 

Complimentary ground shuttle service will run to/from the Hyatt Regency and Hotel Indigo and the Convention Center during conference hours and takes approximately 15 minutes. 

Please see the hotel map and Ferry and Shuttle Service for ferry service locations and schedules. Please note: Shuttle schedules are subject to change. Please check the schedule upon your arrival in Savannah for more information and updates. 

Reserving Your Hotel

NEW ONE-STEP PROCESS! Book your hotel during the registration process!

The room block for CVS 2017 will consist of three hotels and a special block of rooms has been obtained for meeting attendees at each hotel.

Simply complete the housing section online during the registrations process, or on the registration form. List your hotel preferences in order. As hotel rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, it is to your advantage to register early. Please be sure to list your roommates, if any. Credit card information must be included with your housing request. 

ASM will provide support only for reservations booked within the official room block. EXPERIENT IS THE ONLY AUTHORIZED HOUSING PROVIDER FOR CVS 2017. All reservations need to be made through Experient. Hotels will not accept direct reservations. 

ASM is not responsible for hotel reservations booked outside of the official housing block. Attendees that choose to book with a different agency or direct with a hotel, will be subject to the terms and conditions outlined for that reservation and outside of ASM's control.
