HOUSING ACCOMMODATIONS

TMS has contracted a block of rooms at the headquarters hotel, San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina, along with each of the hotels listed on the housing form in this brochure, and therefore has assumed a financial liability for any and all rooms in that block that are not reserved. You are strongly encouraged to reserve your room(s) at the hotels listed to limit our financial liability. Please help TMS achieve overall success with the 132nd TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition by making your reservation at one of the listed hotels prior to the advance housing deadline.

The TMS headquarters hotel will be the San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina. Special conference rates have been contracted at all the hotels listed on the housing form found in this brochure. Please note there is a $20.00 coupon included with each reservation at the Embassy Suites to be used at the hotel’s restaurant. Also, if you are canceling or changing a reservation at the Hyatt after February 20, you must call the Hyatt directly. To receive the special convention rate, please use the hotel reservation form to make your hotel reservation.

Hotel reservations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis until Monday, February 3, 2003.
