NGS Room Block – SOLD OUT Rooms have been reserved at six conference hotels providing attendees with a range of prices and conveniences. The Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn are across the street from the convention center. The Crowne Plaza, Omni, Holiday Inn Express, and Doubletree, and Holiday Inn Express are several blocks away, but a free shuttle bus will be provided between these four hotels and the convention site. All rooms are subject to local, state, and federal taxes which are 13% and could increase before the conference begins. Attendees must request the NGS conference rate when making reservations. Hotels are offering the NGS rate three days before and three days after the conference so participants can do research or sight-seeing in the area. Make your reservations early because the hotels may release the rooms to other guests beginning 14 April 2014. A few ADA compliant rooms are available.
