CMS has provided the conference hotel with a guarantee that a minimum number of rooms will be sold. Although it may be possible to obtain lodging elsewhere at a lower rate, please understand that CMS will be forced to pay penalties which will jeopardize future conferences if the organization fails to meet its room block. Please note that rooms booked by any other means than those listed below do not contribute toward the fulfillment of CMS’ contracted room block with the hotel.
