Support your professional organization and hotel workers by staying at the conference hotel!

We know San Francisco is an expensive city and organizing the WAM is a costly endeavor. One of the ways that we mitigate costs is by guaranteeing the sale of a number of room nights. We urge you to stay at the hotel to ensure that our minimum room nights are met. Not meeting the guaranteed sales will result in additional fees incurred by the participating organizations.

Aside from its location and amenities, we selected the InterContinental because it is a union hotel.  When you choose to stay at a union hotel you ensure that those who serve you during your stay are paid a living wage, and you reward hotels that maintain equitable and fair work conditions for their workers. For more on why you should consider staying at union hotels, and to check the status of other hotels, visit https://www.fairhotel.org/your-dollars-matter.

The regular non-WAM hotel rate for these dates starts at $312/night so we strongly encourage you to take advantage of the conference rate and book your reservation as soon as possible.

The InterContinental San Francisco is staffed with multilingual Guest Relations professionals, business center services are available 24-hours and are located on the hotel's 3rd floor. Full business services include copying, printing, fax, high speed Internet and secretarial services. Complimentary guest room Wi-fi is included for all WAM attendees.
