SOMSA Hotels

The Special Operations Medical Association is able to conduct high-quality meetings at desirable locations for a reasonable registration fee because a block of hotel rooms contracted for meeting attendees. In exchange for filling the required number of sleeping rooms, SOMA is able to use the hotel and convention center meeting space at no or reduced costs, thus keeping registration fees low. In addition, meeting attendees receive a reduced rate for their sleeping rooms.​

Before you make your hotel reservations, please note:

  1. Reserve your hotel room early.  Hotels may sell out prior to the April 17 cut-off date.
  2. The negotiated SOMA rates are only available for reservations made by April 17 (if rooms remain available).​
  3. Only a limited number of rooms are available at all three hotels for the per diem rate.  Once those are sold out, SOMA will not be able to secure any additional rooms at the per diem rate.  Other hotels in the downtown area may offer rooms at the per diem rate.
  4. Please book only the number of rooms that you are certain you will use.​  All participants can help keep rates for the Assembly and hotel rooms affordable by booking rooms at the designated Assembly hotels and avoiding last-minute cancellations by not overbooking rooms.
  5. SOMA has blocked fewer hotel rooms for 2020 SOMSA participants compared to previous years.  SOMA assumes a financial risk when securing hotel rooms and meeting space for SOMSA.  For the past several years, the hotel room pick-up was considerably less than the contracted room blocks resulting in financial penalties for SOMA. 
  6. Hotels may sell out prior to the ​cutoff date; please make your reservations early.
