You may make your housing reservations through the secure online housing website is available 24/7, and offer real-time availability with full hotel descriptions, amenity listings, distances from the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, maps, and other information to help you make your decision easier.
The Society of Toxicology and Connections Housing (SOT’s official housing company) reservation deadline is February 12, 2016. You may make new reservations, modify, or cancel existing reservations by using the online housing system or you may contact Connections Housing directly at 800.262.9974 or 404.842.0000, 9:00 am–7:00 pm EST Monday through Friday. You benefit when you book your hotel room within the room block by receiving significantly reduced hotel rates and superior reservation services.
All reservations for housing must be made through Connections Housing and not with the hotels directly. The deadline for new housing reservations is Thursday, February 12, 2016. For best availability and immediate acknowledgement, make your hotel reservation using Connections Housing online housing reservation system. Faxed and mailed housing requests will take longer to process and your hotel selections may become unavailable. Please do not submit multiple requests.
The Society of Toxicology has reserved and contracted discounted rooms at various New Orleans hotels. Reserving a room in the SOT room block is an important way to support SOT and keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. Your patronage of these official meeting hotels makes it possible for SOT to secure the meeting space necessary for this event at a greatly reduced cost and helps to keep registration prices down. Please assist the SOT by making your hotel reservations through the online housing reservation site via Connections Housing.
A reservation acknowledgment will be emailed, faxed, or mailed to you once your reservation has been booked. (You will not receive a confirmation from your hotel.) If you do not receive an acknowledgment within three (3) business days, please call Connections Housing.
The deadline date for new reservations is Thursday, February 12, 2016. You can make changes and/or cancellations online or by contacting Connections Housing at 404.842.0000 or 800.262.9974.
All cancellations made within 72 hours prior to the day of arrival and no shows will be charged the first night’s room and tax by the hotel. Early departures are subject to penalty fees set by the hotel.
We have been made alerted that unauthorized companies are contacting SOT exhibitors and registrants and offering hotel reservations for New Orleans. Please be advised that the only company authorized to arrange hotel reservations for the 2016 SOT Annual Meeting is Connections Housing. Connection Housing does not solicit reservations or credit card information by phone and or email.
Unfortunately in the past, some Annual Meeting attendees and exhibitors have fallen prey to these aggressive companies and have either: lost their significant deposits or been relocated without any warning. Others have not had the guest room reservations even made or had room reservations made for them at other hotels than ones in the SOT block. This has caused great hardships and significant financial loss to these companies and individuals. Please be advised that reservations made through an agency other than Connections Housing could be very risky.
If you are contacted by another housing company trying to sell hotel rooms, please notify Heidi Prange.
Listed below are housing agencies that are not affiliated with SOT. Please take a moment to investigate these companies if you decide to use them.
SOT has an established relationship with Connection Housing so they can assist you with any hotel reservation need that you may have. Connection Housing representative will be on-site at the 2016 New Orleans Annual Meeting to assist with any last minute changes or to facilitate any housing needs that you may have during the convention.

The Society is pleased to provide a Room Share Program to those registered for the Annual Meeting.

This program allows SOT Annual Meeting Registrants to identify others with whom a room might be shared. Please visit the Room Share Program for more information.
