The Westin Boston Waterfront


All scientific sessions, exhibit show, posters and sleeping rooms will be at  the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.


We are able to offer the special discounted room rates due to a commitment to contract for a minimum number of sleeping rooms at this hotel. If we do not fill these blocks, financial penalties will be incurred. This ultimately impacts the health of the ACA. Staying at the conference hotel also helps keep future registration fees lower.

Room Sharing

Room sharing is an option for those looking to save money on their hotel accommodations.  This service is strictly for facilitating contact between roommates and does not guarantee availability. Once contact is made, attendees will still need to reserve a room directly with the hotel.  If you wish to be listed as wanting to share a room, please send an email containing your name, institute, email address and gender. Once you have found a roommate, please contact us again to let us know, and we will remove your name from the listing.
