Hotel Accommodations

NEW – For the 2019 CSTE Annual Conference, Orchid Events is our exclusive housing service to assist with new reservations, modifications and cancellations. Hotel accommodations can only be secured at a group block hotel after registering for the conference. Attendees may register online by credit card or check. Please see registration deadlines for guidelines on check payments. Hotels will not accept reservation directly. Early registration and hotel reservations should be made as soon as possible, as reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. After your registration is complete, attendees will have access to a direct link to make hotel accommodation online or may contact Orchid Events at (844) 443-7240 Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. MST or [email protected]. A credit card is needed to secure your hotel reservation and will not be charged during the initial stage, but held as a guarantee for a deposit of one night’s room and tax for each room reserved.

The deadline for reservations at the group rate is May 10, 2019. However, if the group block sells out for any or all nights of the conference prior to the deadline, then the group rate will no longer be available. The hotel may also sell out even after the CSTE group block sells out. To ensure that you get into a group block hotel, it is recommended that you make your reservation as early as possible. Hotel reservations cancelled after May 10, 2019 are subject to a $25 processing fee. Deposit of one night’s room and tax will be forfeited entirely if cancellation occurs within 48 hours of arrival date. CSTE has contracted with hotels in the group block to provide complimentary in-room Wi-Fi access to attendees in the group block. 

Orchid Events will send reservation acknowledgements within 24 hours via email if booked online or by phone. You will not receive a written confirmation from the hotel. For additional questions, see our FAQs or contact Orchid Events at (844) 443-7240 Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. MST or [email protected]. For special requests, please contact Orchid Events. Hotels will assign specific room types upon check-in based on availability and special requests are not guaranteed. After May 10, 2019, please contact the hotel directly to make reservation changes, cancellations or for the availability of a new reservation. 

Detailed information on hotels and availability is accessible after you have registered for the conference, however for travel approval process needs, a list of hotels and the group block rates are available below. CSTE nor Orchid Events can guarantee availability of your preferred hotel as reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Hotels will not accept reservations directly.
