Hotel and Reservations
A block of conference-rate accommodations has been reserved at the Omni William Penn Hotel, 530 William Penn Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15219 USA.
The conference rate per night for rooms is $179, single or double, and includes complementary WiFi and access to the hotel fitness center. The hotel is located only a few blocks away from Pittsburgh’s thriving Cultural District, with its museums and performance halls and stages.
You must make reservations directly with the hotel well in advance of the meeting, no later than February 22, 2018. After the cutoff date, any uncommitted rooms in the block we have reserved will be released for general sale, and additional reservation requests will be accepted if rooms are available and without the conference discount. The conference rate also applies 3 days prior and 3 days after the conference, based upon availability. Cancellations will be accepted 72 hours prior to the day of arrival.
Reservations may be made by phoning the hotel directly at 412-281-7100. You need to identify yourself as a member of the AOS. It is also possible to reserve by logging into our customized group web page.
The Society’s contract with the Omni William Penn Hotel for securing conference rates requires that a minimum number of rooms per night be reserved and occupied by members for the duration of the meeting. Thus, your stay at the Omni William Penn Hotel assures that the AOS will not be assessed extremely high fees for meeting and banquet space rental. We truly need your cooperation in this matter.
