Botany 2017 Host Hotel

 

 

 

Did you know: booking your housing at hotels outside the official Botany 2017 housing block actually hurts the conference? In order to bring our meeting to exciting conference cities, Botany 2017 is required to book a certain number of hotel rooms. The conference works incredibly hard to offer a variety of hotels at rates and services that will provide value to attendees. We vet each hotel to make sure that you arrive to experience a clean, safe property with excellent services and amenities.

Botany 2017 has negotiated group rates at the Fort Worth Omni –  All rooms offer free internet.

Roommate matching - Botany 2017 Housing Partner Finder 

If you are looking to share expenses  

Since Botany 2017 does not take responsibility for assigning roommates, this site is provided as an aid to registrants in finding other participants who wish to share accommodations. This site and database is provided on an "as is" basis only to interested persons who have completed and successfully submitted this form. The location of the database, a username and password are provided by e-mail, so the e-mail address that you designate must be a real address at which you can receive messages. An access code is provided so that you may remove your entry from the database whenever you choose to do so. (If after an entry is deleted a new partner is sought, the access code also permits reinstatement of the entry.)

Questions provided below are based on information that may be useful in making a roommate selection. Each participant submits his/her own data. Therefore, Botany 2017 can assume no responsibility for the veracity of any statements in this database. Registrants are responsible for contacting individuals on the password-protected list and for making their own arrangements. Only one roommate should make the hotel reservation. It is recommended that you make your hotel reservation early.

To be included in the database, please submit your name, e-mail address, and pertinent information on the form below. By using this form, you are acknowledging that Botany 2017 assumes no responsibility for any difficulties or consequences arising from a shared room and recommends that potential roommates be screened carefully. Also, it should be noted that data does not travel in an encoded form, so data transmitted may be available. (The security risk during data transmission is comparable to sending an email. Data is stored on a web site.) The database site is password protected, but still private details about roommate preferences that one does not wish to share with other participants should not be posted here. The roommate locator service is not a secure site!

PLEASE NOTE:  We have NOT and WILL NOT contract with any Housing Company to make your hotel reservations for you.  Conference Hotels reservation are still available.  If anyone contacts you offering to make your arrangements - Please refer them to me:  johanne@botany.org
