Booking Hotel Accommodations for the 2021 RRM

Trainees (students, postdoctoral fellows and research staff): your RRM registration fee includes shared accommodations for Friday night. If you are attending one of the workshops, shared accommodation is covered for Thursday night as well. When registering, you will be asked to list a preferred roommate (See Room Sharing at the 2021 RRM). For all trainee accommodations, roommates will be assigned by the conference, honoring preferences whenever possible. Trainees should not call hotel directly to make reservations.

PIs: your RRM meeting registration fee does not include accommodations. You will be responsible for booking your own rooms at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel. A block of rooms has been set aside at a special rate of $109.00 plus tax (valid til 5pm, August 19). Reservations can be made by calling the hotel at 1 (800) 468-3571 or (614) 228-5050 and referencing "Rustbelt RNA Meeting" or online at https://book.passkey.com/go/rustbeltrnameeting. If you are interested in extending your stay after the meeting at the conference rate, please contact the venue at the above number.

Room Sharing at the 2021 RRM

Hotel accommodations for all trainees who attend the meeting are provided through an NSF grant that supports the RRM. Trainees will be asked to share a hotel room with another trainee. Hotel rooms include two double beds and amenities for two people. Registrants are strongly encouraged to designate a roommate, and if not they will, will be assigned to share a room with another individual of the same sex.

If a trainee declines to share a hotel room, they will be responsible for booking their own accommodations separately through the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel; please contact the RRM organizers for further instructions.
