Online Hotel Reservations
Custom Web sites for BOSKONE 44 / NON PARTY BLOCK and PARTY BLOCK have been created.
Warning! If you are reserving a triple, quad or requesting a roll-away, you might be quoted the wrong rate, the hotel WILL fix the rate before you check in.
Guests can access the site to learn more about the event and to book, modify, or cancel a reservation. Please note that the credit card used must have an expiration date of "02/07" or later.
Access to the site is organized by guest type and can be obtained by going to the appropriate link below:
Contact your local Westin phone reservations office. In the US and Canada, it's 1-800-937-8461; check your local telephone directory if you are calling from another location. The names of the blocks are "Boskone Party block" and "Boskone Non-party block".
If you call the Westin 800 number, or the hotel directly to make reservations you may also get the wrong rate. However, the reservationists have a screen that tells them that they might be giving out the wrong rate, and to fix it manually — again, the hotel WILL fix the rate before you check in.
Problems making Reservations
There are still plenty of all types of rooms available, but some people have reported not being able to reserve some room types in the block they want.
If you've had a problem with room type or party/non-party block, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know
- what you've got, including confirmation number, room type, all names, etc,.
- what you want
and we'll get your reservations fixed.
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, and can only be put in a king room, so let them know if you think you'll need one. Please specify a party or non-party floor room at the time of reservation. If you want to reserve a suite, please contact us at email@example.com or write to us at the PO Box.
Check-in and Check-out: Check-in begins at 3 pm Check-out time is 12 noon. A late check-out of 2 pm may be available. You can avoid morning check-out lines by pre-paying as early as the night before!
