Advantages of Bookingwith ASTRA
VisitPITTSBURGH Housing Services is the ONLY housing provider for ASTRA's Marketplace & Academy and will not call you soliciting housing.
Anyone who contacts you who isn't a listed ASTRA or VisitPITTSBURGH staff member is doing so without ASTRA's permission. It has come to our attention that "Corporate Booking Services - CBS International," "National Travel," "Global Housing Solutions (GHS)", Travel Group Partners and Convention Housing Planners have been contacting exhibitors and attendees claiming to have the lowest rate. They are NOT affiliated with ASTRA and there are hidden fees and penalties for booking with them. If you are contacted by these or any other company claiming to be affiliated with ASTRA, please call the ASTRA office to let us know.
The ONLY place you can get the discounted ASTRA rate for the listed ASTRA hotels is online at the hotel link above or by phone through VisitPITTBURGH.
When you book through the ASTRA block you save money because of our group buying. In the case of an overbooking or problem with your reservation, booking through the ASTRA block also guarantees easy access to assistance. Booking within the block is another way to support the organization. Through our group purchase we are able to keep convention costs low in turn keeping registrations rates at the same levels for the last five years.
We appreciate your support.
Please contact ASTRA staff at (312) 222-0984 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you!
