Why Choose an Official EB Hotel?

All EB attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to make hotel reservations by utilizing the official EB 2016 housing bureau Experient. We recognize that attendees have many options with area hotels and that you may be looking only at the per night cost in making your decision. However, we encourage you to take a few minutes to understand the importance of selecting an official EB hotel and the other factors beyond the per night rate.

Experimental Biology has a long history of consistently fulfilling the minimum number of room nights to be sold according to our contracts with the hotels. However, with the current economic climate and outside competition it gets more difficult each year to assure these rooms will be used by the attendees and exhibitors.

What does this mean to you?

  • When we are able to maintain a consistent history of hotel rooms sold, it helps us negotiate the lowest hotel rates possible for future EB meetings.
  • EB earns credit for each room night utilized by an attendee or exhibitor when the reservation is at an official conference hotel. This credit helps to offset the rental costs of the convention center.
  • Our hotels contracts protect you. Booking within the EB hotel block gives us the opportunity, if the need does arise, to assist you with any hotel problem you may experience while at the meeting. When you choose other hotels we have no contacts or leverage to help rectify a problem or inconvenience that you may have encountered.
  • Lastly, be cautious of companies contacting you that claim to be affiliated with EB by offering discounted hotel rates. You will be providing your contact information and credit card number to individuals that are not affiliated with EB. They frequently have only 2-3 rooms at the advertised hotel; subcontract to 3rd party travel agents outside the U.S.; and are extremely difficult to track down by telephone or through their websites. These are not reputable companies. Only Experient provides housing registration on behalf of Experimental Biology 2016.


The last day to make reservations at the discounted convention rate is March 10, 2016.  We encourage you to make your reservations early as the lower priced properties will sell out first.
