Hotel Booking Information!

The Sheraton Boston is connected to the Prudential Mall and Copley Place, where Boskone members can dine at Marché Movenpick, a choice of two Legal Sea Foods, or many other restaurants within a short walking distance. There is also a fully enclosed walking route from Amtrak's Back Bay Station to our facilities (detailed directions coming soon.)

There are two blocks in the Sheraton the party block and the non-party
block. The party block is for all those who wish to throw parties or who
either want to be near parties or don't mind being near parties. You must
specify either the party block or the non-party block when you make your
New! The Sheraton Hotel's reservation system may tell you that the block is full. This is not correct. This can happen on either the telephone or web site.
If you are told that the block is full, do not complain directly to the
Hotel. Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This will be sent to our Hotel liaison who will fix the problem. If you attempt
to make a reservation after January 22, 2004 and are told that the block is full, do not despair.
Our hotel block is extended though January 26, 2004.
In all cases, suites for parties must be reserved thru us.
Online Hotel Reservations!
In addition to booking your rooms, you can view a slide show of the hotel and general hotel information. Guests can sign up for our award winning frequent guest program, Starwood Preferred Guest on the web site.
The Sheraton meeting attendee reservations process is different from their
regular Internet reservations process. You DO NOT go in through the
standard Sheraton Hotels web site, and the menus choices are different. The
differences are explained below.
Go to: http://www.starwood.com/sheraton/meetings/attend_enter_code.html
On that screen, enter Boston/Mass/US and the code for the block. The party
block is 14008, and the non-party block is 11154. Continue to the next
screen, and locate the Sheraton Boston Hotel. This is a link, but DO NOT
click on the link. Instead, click on the "Select" button after the name of
the hotel. The next screen requests a checkin/out day, smoking and bed
preferences, and number of rooms/guests. Fill this in and continue. The
next screen allows you to select the room type that matches your
preferences, if available. From this point on, it collects your information
(name, address, credit card number, etc.), and you can complete the
New! Queen rooms in our non-party block (11154) are still available via the online system. Please don't give a smoking preference. We can help you fix that once you have a reservation.
Contact your local Sheraton phone reservations office. In the US, it's
800-325-3535; check your local telephone directory if you are calling from a
non-US location. The names of the blocks are "Boskone 2004 Party block" and
"Boskone 2004 Non-party block" (and they can also look up things by the
group code listed above).
A limited number of handicapped-access rooms are available, so please let the hotel
know right away if you have any special needs. Likewise, rollaway
beds and cribs are in short supply, so let them know if you think
you'll need one. If you want to reserve a suite, please contact us at
email@example.com or write to us at our postal address.
Check-in and Check-out: Check-in begins at 3 p.m. Check-out
time is 12 noon. A late check-out of 2 p.m. may be available. You
can avoid morning check-out lines by pre-paying as early as the
If you have to cancel your reservation, you must do so at least
48 hours before your check-in time to avoid a penalty.
