Convention Housing & Travel

Housing for the 2023 ASHA Convention in Boston, Massachusetts will open on August 1, 2023, at 10:00 a.m., Eastern time. To help you plan in advance, a preliminary list of the official Boston ASHA hotels and rates will be posted in early May.

If you have questions, you may contact ASHA's official housing provider, Spargo, Inc. by phone at 877-585-6005 or by email at ashahousing@spargoinc.com. Customer service hours are 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), Monday–Friday.

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 take advantage of 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.

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. You may also encounter fraudulent websites promoting housing reservations for ASHA. Spargo, Inc. is the only official housing company for ASHA. They will not solicit you and you can only navigate to their hotel reservations website through our own website, convention.asha.org. If you receive a call or e-mail from any company that is not our official housing provider or find a suspicious website, please contact us immediately at convention@asha.org.

ADA Hotel Rooms and Shuttles

All official ASHA Convention hotels comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. An ADA-accessible shuttle equipped with a wheelchair lift will be available for all ASHA hotels and any official ASHA event (i.e., ASHFoundation Fundraiser or the ASHA PAC Reception) for attendees with mobility issues. Those who use scooters can use the standard shuttle service; shuttle staff will help stow scooters in the cargo area of the shuttle. Read more about accessibility at ASHA's live events for information about reasonable requests for accommodations.
