Lodging and Transportation
Q. Are hotel accommodations included in the registration fee?
No, for the Institute, you will need to make your own hotel reservations.
A limited number of rooms have been reserved at the institute hotel for a discounted rate per night for single & double occupancy. Rooms are on a first-come, first reserved basis. The hotel may not be able to extend the discounted rates beyond the room block or the cutoff date. To qualify for these rates, please make your reservations no later than the cutoff date specified for each Institute, and you must identify yourself with the ASQ®-3 & ASQ®:SE-2 Training of Trainers Institute. You can reach the hotel by calling or booking online. Refer to Institute page for specific deadline dates.
Q. My organization will pay for my hotel room stay with a credit card, what do I need to do?
All hotels have strict policies for payment of the hotel stay. You may be asked to present a credit card at check-in and may incur charges up to the full amount of your stay unless other payment arrangements have been made. Debit cards used for incidentals may be pre-authorized for an amount up to the full amount of your stay. At all times the hotel policies prevail; please contact the hotel directly. Brookes Publishing is not responsible for the hotel policies.

Most major cities have international airports with multiple daily flights from across the U.S. and Canada. Be sure to check the local airport for the location of your specific training institute. Once at the airport, taxi and car rental services are available. Ride-sharing services, such as Uber and Lyft, may also be available.
