Hotel & Travel

A special block of rooms has been obtained for meeting attendees at several hotels near the Georgia World Congress Center. ASM will provide assistance with making hotel reservations, or processing changes and cancellations only for reservations booked within the official room block.

All reservations will need to be made through Experient–the only authorized housing provider for ASM Microbe 2018. Hotels will not accept reservations direct. To make a reservation, you must first register for ASM Microbe 2018. After you have completed your meeting registration, you will be directed to the housing reservation site. The housing reservation site provides full details on available hotels, including photographs, location, and descriptions. 

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