​​​​​Book Your Hotel Accommodations for
2019 SOMSA Today!

The Special Operations Medical Association is able to conduct high-quality meetings at desirable locations for a reasonable registration fee because a block of hotel rooms contracted for meeting attendees. In exchange for filling the required number of sleeping rooms, SOMA is able to use the hotel and convention center meeting space at no or reduced costs, thus keeping registration fees low. In addition, meeting attendees receive a reduced rate for their sleeping rooms.​

Before you make your hotel reservations, please note:

  1. Please be sure to reserve your hotel rooms as soon as possible as the room blocks are likely to sell out prior to the reservation deadline. 
  2. SOMA has blocked fewer hotel rooms for 2019 SOMSA participants compared to previous years.   SOMA assumes a financial risk when securing hotel rooms and meeting space for SOMSA.  For the past several years, the hotel room pick-up was considerably less than the contracted room blocks resulting in financial penalties for SOMA. 
  3. 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.
  4. Hotels may sell out prior to the ​April 15 cutoff date; please make your reservations early. The negotiated SOMSA rates will not be available after the cut-off .​
