Hotel Scam Warning
This is the only place to book your housing for the ISHLT 2022 Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions. Contact by any company soliciting as the “official” ISHLT housing company, offering special non-refundable rates at ISHLT conference hotels, and/or requesting credit card information should be considered a scam. All attendees and exhibitors should be aware that no one from ISHLT or ConferenceDirect solicits directly by telephone for hotel bookings or special discounts. ConferenceDirect is the official housing company of the ISHLT 2022 Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions.


Hotel Check-In and Check-out
The check-in and check-out time vary by hotel. Please review the confirmation you receive from the hotel for its check-in and check-out times.

Hotel/Airport Transportation
All hotels are located just over 3 miles from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). The airport is accessible via taxi (approximately $35 USD each way).

What to Wear and the Weather:
Attire for the ISHLT Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions is business casual. The average daytime high temperature in Boston in April is 57°F (14°C); the average low temperature is 41°F (5°C). Because meeting room temperatures sometimes fluctuate, we recommend bringing a light sweater or jacket.
