    Looking for a Roommate?

    The Roommate Locator website is available to facilitate connections between ASHA Convention attendees who are looking for a hotel room to share and/or a roommate. You may sign up to be listed as a potential roommate, or you may browse the list of individuals seeking roommates. If you sign up to be listed, please be sure to remove your name once you have found a roommate.

    ADA Hotel Rooms

    All official ASHA Convention hotels comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. If you need an accessible hotel room, please complete the reservation process online and select "Handicap Accessible" at the step where you may indicate room preferences. A representative from ASHA's housing company will contact you to discuss your room arrangements. Members are also welcome to contact Customer Service (ashahousing@spargoinc.com; 877-585-6005 or 703-449-6418) if they wish to discuss their needs with someone directly.

    Government Rates

    If you are eligible for a U.S. Government per diem rated room, please contact the ASHA Housing Center at 877-585-6005 or ashahousing@spargoinc.com for assistance. Please note that a Government ID is required at check-in for Government-rated rooms.

    Why Book a Room Through ASHA?

    Both Convention attendees and the association benefit when you book a hotel room through ASHA. Here's how:

    • Convention attendees staying at official ASHA hotels can use ASHA's convenient shuttle service.
    • ASHA is able to negotiate lower room rates at a range of quality hotels.
    • ASHA hotel contracts protect you, and we can provide assistance if problems arise with your reservation.
    • Filling room blocks allows ASHA to secure competitive rates when negotiating with hotels in future Convention cities. ASHA can demonstrate that the association meets its obligations with hotels, which assures hotels that contracting with ASHA will be mutually agreeable.

    If you find a lower rate at a hotel in our block than what we offer, please contact ASHA's housing provider (ashahousing@jspargo.com).

    Unauthorized Housing Providers

    Sometimes, ASHA is alerted that an unauthorized housing company is contacting our exhibitors or attendees to inform them that they can offer less expensive room rates at hotels in our block. Spargo, Inc. is the only official housing company for ASHA. If you receive a call or e-mail from any company that is not our official housing provider, please contact us immediately at convention@asha.org.

    Travel and Transportation Information

    The ASHA Convention will be held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (415 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02210). The major airport is Boston Logan Airport (BOS). Amtrak offers railroad service from many major Northeastern cities into South Station. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA, or the "T") offers subway and bus service for getting around locally.

    Shuttles

    A number of the hotels in Boston are walkable from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Complimentary shuttle service will be provided November 14–17 for attendees staying at ASHA hotels not within close proximity of the convention center. ADA-accessible shuttle service will be available for all ASHA hotels and any official ASHA event (i.e.,  ASHFoundation Fundraiser, ASHA PAC Reception, Closing Party) for those with mobility issues.
