Due to the Omicron variant of Covid-19, the 2022 SSSL Conference will be rescheduled to Summer 2022. At this time, the Hyatt Centric has cancelled all reservations for the previous February dates. Once the new dates are contracted, we will distribute the room block link so that you can book for the rescheduled Summer dates. Stay tuned for more soon!
Hyatt Centric Midtown Atlanta, 125 10th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309, https://www.hyatt.com
Situated in the heart of Atlanta’s historic LGBTQ+ neighborhood of Midtown just one-block from the famous rainbow crosswalk, Hyatt Centric Midtown Atlanta is the only Black-owned hotel with conferencing space in the heart of the city. Positioned just 0.2 miles from the “Midtown” MARTA public transit station with direct service from the ATL International Airport, and within easy walking distance of Midtown dining and cultural attractions. SSSL’s hotel room block rate is $139/night. Conference registration, exhibitors, panels, and general meetings will all be held at the Hyatt Centric.
Perhaps the most exciting element of our contract with the Hyatt Centric is the aggressive complimentary room ratio that will fund vouchers for free lodging to be awarded to contingent, underfunded, and graduate student scholars on a need basis.
This lodging program is entirely self-funding but is dependent upon selling-out our room block at the Hyatt. Given the competitive rates we have secured and the incredible support this program provides for our financially vulnerable colleagues, please consider booking with SSSL’s room block.
