The official ASTC 2011 Conference Hotels are the Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel and the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore Hotel. Please do not accept any solicitations from outside sources. ASTC will notify you if the conference hotels are sold out.

Due to the Baltimore Marathon taking place Saturday, October 15, it is recommended that you book your hotel room as soon as possible before they sell out. Information about the race, including schedules and street closures, can be found here.

Hotel rooms are available at these rates on a first-come, first-served basis, and based on availability. The deadline to receive ASTC's special rates is September 23.
