JMM 2019 Baltimore

How To Reserve a Room

The importance of reserving a hotel room at one of the official Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) hotels cannot be stressed enough. The AMS and the MAA make every effort to keep participants’ expenses at the meeting, registration fees, and hotel rooms for the meeting as low as possible. They work hard to negotiate the most affordable hotel rates and to maximize the best use of your registration dollars. The AMS and MAA encourage all participants to register for the meeting. When anyone pays the registration fee and reserves a room with an official JMM hotel, he or she is helping to support not only the 2019 JMM, but future meetings as well.

General

Participants are encouraged to register for the JMM in order to reserve hotel rooms at the contracted JMM rates. If a participant needs to reserve a hotel room before they are registered for the JMM, he or she must contact the Mathematics Meetings Services Bureau (MMSB) at mmsb@ams.org or 1-800-321-4267 ext. 4137 or ext. 4144 for further instructions.

Special rates have been negotiated exclusively for this meeting at the following hotels: Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor, Sheraton Inner Harbor, Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, Hyatt Regency Baltimore, Royal Sonesta, Lord Baltimore Hotel, Hotel Monaco, Days Inn Inner Harbor, and Holiday Inn Inner Harbor. Detailed Information on Hotels Here

To receive the JMM rates, reservations for these hotels must be made through the MMSB. The hotels will not be able to accept reservations directly until after December 13, 2018. At that time, rooms and rates will be based on availability only. Any rooms reserved directly with the hotels after December 13, 2018 are subject to rates higher than the JMM rates.

A link to the 2019 JMM housing site will be included in the email confirmations of all registrations. If a participant needs to have the link emailed to him or her, please send the request to mmsb@ams.org. If anyone is having problems reserving a hotel room, please send email to mmsb@ams.org.

Any participant who needs to reserve a hotel room and does not have a credit card, he or she should contact the MMSB at mmsb@ams.org for further instructions. If a check is being used to reserve a hotel room, the reservation and check must be received by the MMSB no later than December 1, 2018.

ADA Accessibility

We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated, or otherwise treated differently. If special assistance, auxiliary aids, or other reasonable accommodations to fully participate in this meeting is required, it should be indicated in the appropriate section on the Registration and Housing Form or emailed to the MMSB at mmsb@ams.org. Requests for ADA-accessible rooms should also be clearly indicated when making hotel reservations. All requests for special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) must be made allowing enough time for evaluation and appropriate action by the AMS and MAA. Any information obtained about any disability will remain confidential.

Beware of Room Poachers, Housing Scams, and Registration Scams

Please beware of aggressive housing bureaus that target potential attendees of a meeting. They are sometimes called "room poachers" or "room-block pirates" and these companies generally position themselves as a meeting's housing bureau, convincing attendees to unknowingly book outside the official room block. They call people who they think will more likely than not attend a meeting and lure them with room rates that are significantly less than the published group rate -- for a limited time only. And people who find this offer tempting may hand over their credit card data, believing they have scored a great rate and their housing is a done deal. Unfortunately, this often turns out to be the start of a long, costly nightmare.

These housing bureaus are not affiliated with the Joint Mathematics Meetings in any way. The only official housing bureau for this meeting is the MMSB and they would never call anyone to solicit reservations. The only way to book a room at a negotiated JMM rate is through the JMM registration form or through the MMSB. The JMM cannot be responsible for any damages incurred as a result of hotel bookings made with unofficial housing bureaus.

The JMM only sells attendee lists to JMM Exhibitors and Sponsors, and only for a one-time promotional use. Exhibitors and Sponsors are not authorized to sell JMM lists to anyone. Nor does anyone else have the authority to sell any lists generated by the JMM. Beware of any person or group approaching you about purchasing a list generated by the JMM. It would not be an authorized representative for the JMM, under any circumstance.
