Reserving a Room

Connections Housing will act as the booking agent for all contracted conference hotels. To reserve a room in the conference room blocks, please call (404) 842-0000 or (800) 262-9974.

As is standard practice, hotels will require a one-night deposit for each room reservation. Refunds will be given only if cancellations are made at least seven days prior to the scheduled date of arrival. Reservations must be made by Friday, May 26, 2017, in order to receive the SREB room rate.

It is advisable to reserve your rooms early, as the SREB block tends to sell out quickly. By Wednesday, May 24, 2017, each room must list each occupant’s name and a valid method of payment for the one-night deposit. Credit cards and checks are considered valid methods of payment; school purchase orders will not be accepted.
