The Fine Print

  • Rates do not include applicable state and local taxes, currently 15.6% and state or local mandated taxes or assessments.
  • Guests wishing to cancel their reservations should inform the hotel no later than 6:00 pm on the day prior to their arrival date to avoid the cancellation fee of one night at the room rate plus tax.
  • An early departure fee of $75.00 will apply if a group attendee checks out prior to the confirmed checkout date and the Hotel is unable to book an equivalent room type.
  • The HSS does not work with any third-party booking companies. Any communication or request from a third party should be considered illegitimate. We recommend booking reservations directly with the hotel.

Graduate Student Discounted Rooms

Once again, we have a limited block of discounted rooms reserved for grad students ($122.50 per night plux taxes and fees). To request a grad student rate, submit a request form, accessible via the button below. Because rooms are limited, the HSS encourages grad students to share rooms with other grad student attendees. You can find other grad students looking to share by posting in or consulting the Discussion board. In assigning rooms, preference will be given to HSS grad student members. After rooms are assigned to HSS members, they will then be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
