Note Regarding Hotel Workers' Strike: The ASEEES Convention hotel - the Boston Marriott Copley Place - has not been affected by the current strike at the Sheraton and Westin in Boston.  Marriott and Sheraton merged last year, but the current negotiations are for employees of the Sheraton chain. The staff at the Marriott Copley Place is NOT on strike, and there is no picket line at the convention hotel.  ASEEES is using all the leverage the organization has to pressure Marriott's corporate office to settle contract negotiations quickly and will keep members informed of any developments that might affect the convention in Boston.

Some nights are sold out at the ASEEES block rate at the Boston Marriott Copley Place (rooms are still available, but at higher standard rates).  To accomodate additional guests, we have arranged for an overflow hotel.

Rooms are available Wednesday-Sunday at the Hilton Boston Back Bay for $181/night for up to two guests (if three or four guests stay, the rate goes up to $201 and $221, respectively).  These rates don't include tax and gratuity.

Please book via the link below, or by calling 1-617-236-1100 and referencing the group code "ASSOC SLAVIC EUROPE".

This year's convention hotel is just west of downtown Boston, at 110 Huntington Ave in the historic Back Bay neighborhood, between Back Bay and Prudential stations.

The Boston area is primarily serviced through the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).

Boston Logan International, located about 10 miles northeast of the hotel, is about a 20-30 minute drive from the hotel (longer at peak hours).  Cab fare is estimated at $40 each way, but varies with traffic.  Public transportation to downtown Boston is available via the Silver Line bus, Blue Line subway, or commuter ferry.

The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from Boston's Back Bay Station, one of the main Amtrak stops for Northeast Regional trains, the Acela Express train from Boston to Washington, DC, and the Lake Shore Limited line connecting to Chicago.  These trains also stop at Boston's main hub, South Station downtown.

Various intercity bus services, including Greyhound, Megabus, and others, also serve South Station or other sites in Boston.

The Masschusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) offers rail and bus service throughout the Boston area, with numerous stops in the area of the convention hotel.

The hotel's main driveway is on Huntington Avenue. Directions are provided by the hotel or available via Google Maps.

The Marriott provides parking with either valet parking ($60 daily) or off-site parking ($40 daily).  For more information on the Marriott Copley Place garage, as well as other nearby garages, click here.
