Why Stay at the Crowne Plaza?

If you’ve never organized a large meeting before, you may not know how it works behind the scenes.

The Crowne Plaza and other hotels allow organizations like the Society for Cryobiology to use their meeting rooms for free, but stipulates a room block (a set number of accommodation nights) must be booked with the hotel. If we fail to fill the room block, a financial penalty equal to the amount of unfilled rooms is levied. This can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Help us fill our room block by booking your accommodation directly through the Crowne Plaza’s CRYO2020 link above. Or, if your accommodation is booked through a Finance office, make sure they know to use the link.

Note – Rooms booked after the cut off date of June 30, 2020 are not counted toward the room block. Bookings made on third party websites like Expedia or, or by outside providers like travel agents, are not counted toward the room block, and could result in you paying more per night, once tax and other fees are added on.
