Hotel Reservations & City Information
Update (Sept. 17, 2013): As of today, the hotel is sold out for some of the peak nights (Thursday and Friday). If you are not able to make a reservation, please contact Britta Abeln (e-mail: email@example.com; Tel.: 617-353-6570) and ask to be put on the waiting list. Britta can also give you information about our overflow hotel.
Hotel Reservations: The hotel for the 2013 ASOR Annual Meeting is The Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel (101 W Fayette St, Baltimore). Located in the heart of Baltimore and just blocks from the Convention City and the Inner Harbor, the hotel is great venue for our Annual Meeting.
ASOR Guest Room Rates:
$145.00 per room per night (plus taxes), single/double occupancy
$165.00 per room per night (plus taxes), triple/quadruple occupancy
Make your room reservations online or by calling the hotel (866-837-5182 or 410-752-1100) and asking the for "American Schools of Oriental Research" room block. As you make your travel plans, be sure tp take advantage of the travel discounts available to ASOR meeting attendees.
Please reserve your room early! We expect that ASOR's room block will fill long before the cut-off date due to a very compressed market in Baltimore. The AAR/SBL meetings will take place just a few blocks away, and there are not enough hotel rooms in the city of Baltimore to meet demand. We encourage all attendees to make hotel reservations as early as possible. Please also note that hotel reservations and conference registration are separate - make sure that you have both registered for the Annual Meeting and made your hotel reservation.
City Information: Baltimore offers a wide variety of things to do and see. A vibrant city near our nation’s capital, Baltimore was the home of Edgar Allen Poe, the location where Francis Scott Key wrote the “Star Spangled Banner,” and the setting for the series “The Wire.” Sites to visit within a few blocks of The Sheraton City Center include the Inner Harbor area with many restaurants and shops, The Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum, The USS Constellation, The Flag House and 812 Museum, Camden Yards (home of the Orioles), and the Jewish Museum of Maryland. Baltimore is also the home of the first American research university - Johns Hopkins University - where ASOR’s own William F. Albright was a professor.
