Hotel Information for BMM 2017 Convention

Welcome to BMM 2017 Hotel Information!

 

We are excited to host you, your family and your friends at the BMM 2017 convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This page will answer most of your questions on hotel accommodation during the convention.

 

You must complete your registration for the convention in order to take advantage of the discounts offered specifically for the BMM convention by participating hotels. Some hotel rooms are reserved for donors, artists from India, and senior attendeesand attendees with special needs.

 

Off-site hotels are cheaper, can be availed using rewards points and offer free parking in most cases. BMM 2017 provides free shuttles to the convention center.

 

To be guaranteed an on-site hotel accommodation, we highly encourage our donors to initiate and complete the donation payment process before December 31, 2016.

 

  • Donors contributing in excess of $2500 will receive an email confirming their hotel reservation for one of our on-site hotels within a week of the donation.
  • Donors contributing less than $2500 will get a web link in their email, to book their hotel room with all hotels options.
  • All other attendees will get a hotel web link through email once they register.

 

The hotel web link is to be used for your hotel booking only and should not be shared. The BMM2017 team will be running hotel rooming reports daily and reserves the right to cancel the hotel reservations if there is any misuse.

 

All hotel rooms will be made available on a first-come-first served basis.

 

The specially discounted rates negotiated by BMM are available only until the valid dates, as listed in Hotel Information & Rates.  Please register or donate early to take advantage of discounted hotel rates.
