SOMSA Hotel Information

The Special Operations Medical Association has negotiated discounted room rates and contracted for a block of sleeping rooms at the hotels listed below. Use of these hotels enables SOMA to receive discounts on the facilities we use in our host city. Those discounts allow us to pass those savings along to you through lower registration fees

Before you make your hotel reservations, please note:

  1. Reserve your hotel room early.  Hotels may sell out prior to the April 8 cut-off date.
  2. The negotiated SOMA rates are only available for reservations made by April 8 (if rooms remain available).​
  3. Only a limited number of rooms are available at two of the hotels for the per diem rate.  Once those are sold out, SOMA will not be able to secure any additional rooms at the per diem rate.  Other hotels in the downtown area may offer rooms at the per diem rate.
  4. Please book only the number of rooms that you are certain you will use.​  All participants can help keep rates for the Assembly and hotel rooms affordable by booking rooms at the designated Assembly hotels and avoiding last-minute cancellations by not overbooking rooms.
  5. SOMA has blocked fewer hotel rooms for 2022 SOMSA participants compared to previous years.  SOMA assumes a financial risk when securing hotel rooms and meeting space for SOMSA.   
  6. If you choose to call to make your reservation, be sure to mention the SOMA or Special Operations Medical Association to ensure you receive the discounted rate and are included in our room block. 
  7. Beware of unauthorized companies/housing providers (commonly known as hotel pirates). These companies may claim to represent SOMA and solicit SOMA exhibitors and participants promising to secure lower room rates for them. Reservations made through these organizations may appear to be for lower rates but they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. SOMA is not responsible for any rooms booked outside of our contracted hotel block so will be unable to assist with any issues that arise if you book your room through an outside housing company. 
  8. Contact the SOMA Executive Office at if you experience any issues making your reservations.
