HOW DO I MAKE A HOTEL RESERVATION?
Attendees must be registered for the Cord Blood Connect international congress before reserving guest rooms at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel at the reduced group rate.
An access link is provided on your conference registration confirmation page. Please do not share your access link with unregistered guests.
You are encouraged to book you hotel room as soon as possible as the room block can fill quickly. The final date to book at the guaranteed discounted rate is August 16, after which reservations are subject to availability.
A credit card is required to hold your reservation. A valid American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Diner’s Club or Carte Blanche card number and expiration date are required.
OCEANSIDE CONFERENCE VENUE
Cord Blood Connect will convene at Loews Miami Beach Hotel, located oceanside in the heart of the fabled South Beach neighborhood with its trendy restaurants, shops and attractions. September provides some of the best “off season” savings, and special rates have been negotiated to make conference attendance affordable for teams of cord blood bank and academic personnel.
WHY RESERVE A GUEST ROOM AT THE HEADQUARTERS HOTEL?
The most obvious answer to this question is convenience. All of the congress activities will be in the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. It is where you can run into and meet with other attendees in the common areas, lounges and indoor and outdoor restaurants.
The second answer is cost. The negotiated group rate for luxury accommodations in the headquarters hotel offers great value. It may be possible to find economy lodging elsewhere, but don’t forget to factor in the taxi or ride-share transportation costs and travel time to and from the hotel.
And the third answer. The headquarters hotel provides complimentary meeting space for the congress, based on a guarantee of our filling a minimum number of guest rooms. If the guarantee is not met, fees are assessed. Your guest room at the headquarters hotel helps the congress avoid financial penalties and higher registration fees next year.
