Stay in a Conference Hotel & Keep the ACA healthy!


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!  Book your regular (non-student) room today.



Discounted Hotel Rates for Students & Post Docs

The ACA has secured a limited number of rooms for students and postdoctoral associates at reduced rates at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers.  Book your student room today!



Cancellation Policy

Cancellations or changes to reservations must be made directly with the hotel and will adhere to the hotel's cancellation policy.
