Booking a room at a contracted hotel under the official Pink Boots Society room block benefits you and it supports the association. When you “book within the block,” you help our organization secure future meeting sites, you enable us to provide some important features that participants have come to enjoy, and you help keep the conference registration fees lower. Please book responsibly.

Pink Boots Society is aware of companies pretending to be the “official” Pink Boots Society housing company, offering special non-refundable rates, and requesting credit card information. There is NO company that is authorized to solicit directly by telephone for hotel bookings or special discounts. We encourage attendees to book directly with our contracted hotel via the reservation link on the hotel travel page.
