Accommodation

Tucson Marriott University Park

Much of the conference will be held in meeting rooms located on the ground floor of the Tucson Marriott University Park  located right beside the University of Arizona Campus.  It’s a fantastic 9 floor building with sleeping rooms opening up to a large atrium with a bar, restaurant and lounge space – perfect for hanging out before, during and after the conference!

Sleeping room rates (IBS room block):

169.00 USD/night (single)*

169.00 USD/night (double)*

(+$10 per person/night for triple/quad occupancy)

*including taxes and fees, this amount ~ 191.35 USD

Room block cut off date: 12/14/16 (PAST)

If you wish to book by phone, call 520.792.4100 .  They will connect you to reservations and you will need to specify that you are booking at the IBS conference rate.  Note:  Since it is past the room cut off date, you’ll need to ask for the IBS rate, and will depend on room availability.

Looking for a room-mate?  We’ve set up a private facebook group to facilitate finding people to share a room.  Please contact biogeography.ibs@gmail.com to be added to the group, where you can post specifics and work out details with each other.  We will only add people who are already registered for the conference.


Staying at the Marriott University Park hotel will help the society reach minimum room block numbers – please consider supporting the society by staying in this hotel if you are able!
