Botany 2016 Hotels

Did you know: booking your housing at hotels outside the official Botany 2016 housing block actually hurts the conference? In order to bring our meeting to exciting conference cities, Botany 2016 is required to book a certain number of hotel rooms. The conference works incredibly hard to offer a variety of hotels at rates and services that will provide value to attendees. We vet each hotel to make sure that you arrive to experience a clean, safe property with excellent services and amenities.

Botany 2016 has negotiated group rates at the following hotels –  All rooms offer free internet and are within close proximity to the Savannah International Trade and Conference Center. See map here! 

An exciting twist to this conference is that the overflow hotels are a short Ferry Ride across the Savannah River from the Center.  The Ferry runs approximately every 10 minutes from the Trade Center Landing to the City Hall Landing....and adds to the charm of Savannah! Ferry schedule.

This site and database is provided on an "as is" basis only to interested persons who have completed and successfully submitted this form. The location of the database, a username and password are provided by e-mail, so the e-mail address that you designate must be a real address at which you can receive messages. An access code is provided so that you may remove your entry from the database whenever you choose to do so. (If after an entry is deleted a new partner is sought, the access code also permits reinstatement of the entry.)

Questions provided below are based on information that may be useful in making a roommate selection. Each participant submits his/her own data. Therefore, Botany 2016 can assume no responsibility for the veracity of any statements in this database. Registrants are responsible for contacting individuals on the password-protected list and for making their own arrangements. Only one roommate should make the hotel reservation. It is recommended that you make your hotel reservation early.

To be included in the database, please submit your name, e-mail address, and pertinent information on the form below.

Also, it should be noted that data does not travel in an encoded form, so data transmitted may be available. (The security risk during data transmission is comparable to sending an email. Data is stored on a web site.)
