Conference Hotel

JW Marriott Indianapolis - Book Room Online

Reservations Toll Free: 800-266-9432
Reservations Local Phone: 506-474-2009
ACUTA Rate - $209

ACUTA room block extended to March 30, 2012. Once the block is filled, rooms will be confirmed on a space-available basis and the group rate will likely not be available. - Reference ACUTA rate when making your reservation by phone.

Book Your Room at the JW Marriott within the ACUTA Block and It Might Be FREE!

As a special incentive to encourage you to book within the ACUTA block, ACUTA is once again offering a complimentary guest room for up to 4 nights to one attendee who books his or her room at the JW Marriott within the ACUTA block and registers for the Conference by March 16, 2012. Shortly after March 16, ACUTA will conduct a drawing and notify some lucky attendee that his or her hotel room will be FREE. (Last year that lucky person was Odalys Diaz from Florida International University.)

Why are we doing this? In order to secure the type of facilities to hold an event the size of our Annual Conference, ACUTA must select sites years in advance and contract with hotels for the necessary meeting and exhibit space. ACUTA negotiates directly with hotels to secure the best possible rates. We must commit to a minimum number of hotel room nights, and ACUTA relies on its attendees and exhibitors to stay at the Conference hotel to meet this commitment.

Always ask for the ACUTA rate—we do our best to keep your costs as low as possible!


Travel & Transportation

The Travel Authority / ALTOUR (800/274-7135 or 859/277-7135) will help you find the lowest fare and most convenient flights when you identify yourself as an ACUTA attendee. An agent will also assist with upgrades and monitor your reservation for advance changes and any new policies the airlines may put into effect. The Travel Authority /ALTOUR has a perticket transaction fee of $35 (at the time of printing).
