Did you know?
Your support in staying at the Holiday Inn Brownstone Hotel & Conference Center helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference.  SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is then charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.


SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Brownstone Hotel & Conference Center. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early. 

The group rate is guaranteed until the cutoff date, unless the block fills prior to that.  If there are rooms available after the cutoff date, they will be available at the best rate offered at that time.

Reservation Deadline – Wednesday, July 5, 2006 (or until the room block is filled).
This deadline will NOT be extended.  After this date rooms will be sold, as available, for $125 and up.

Single/Double       $89.00 per night plus 13% tax
All rooms based on availability.
All rates are subject to state and local occupancy taxes.

Your reservation is not confirmed until acknowledged in writing by the hotel (available upon request) or verified by phone. 

When making reservations, be sure to identify yourself as an attendee of the SIAM Conference on the Life Sciences. In order to get the SIAM group rate, please make your reservations via fax at +1-919-834-0904 or mail the Hotel Reservation Form directly to the Holiday Inn Brownstone Hotel & Conference Center.  You may also make your reservation by phone by calling 800-465-4329 (USA and Canada) or +1-919-828-0811. Do not make your reservation on-line through the hotel web site, as this will not allow you to retain the SIAM group rate. Remember to get your confirmation number!
