Why should I stay at the ASME Conference headquarters hotel, the Doubletree by Hilton Philadelphia City Center?

Benefits of staying at the conference hotel include reduced transportation costs (e.g. charges for transportation to and from other hotels) as well as savings in time associated with local travel, not to mention the convenience of being onsite. Also, by staying at the Conference headquarters hotel, the Doubletree by Hilton, you gain the opportunity to further network with your colleagues, and remain in the center of the activity surrounding the conference. Finally, as part of the conference planning and organization, ASME enters into contractual agreements that, in part, guarantee a specified number of hotel rooms will be booked by our conference attendees.

The success of this conference, as well as your conference experience, is affected by your patronage of this room block. Because of this, as well as the benefits described above, the conference organizers recommend the Doubletree by Hilton.

ASME has negotiated complimentary internet in the guest rooms at the Doubletree by Hilton.

Self-parking at the garage is $28 per day overnight, Valet parking at the hotel is $42 per day overnight.
