Requests for rooms in this block now open


THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE REQUESTING A ROOM:

  • The student/resident/intern room block opens on May 1st and only 30 double rooms are available.
  • A minimum of two people must share a room.
  • The room rate in this block is $129 plus 17% tax per night.
  • All occupants of the room must be students, interns or residents.
  • Verification of student/intern/resident status required if not a VCS member.
  • VCS DOES NOT keep a list of those searching for a roommate.

 

TO MAKE YOUR REQUEST FOR A ROOM IN THIS BLOCK BEGINNING MAY 1ST:

Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received via email (starting May 1) and which contain ALL of the required and completed information.

  • Email vetcancersociety@yahoo.com requesting a room in the “student” block.
  • The request must include the names of at least two students, interns or residents who will occupy the room. No reservations allowed for singles and the application will not be complete with a roommate listed as “to be determined.”
  • Your request must include your arrival and departure dates.
  • VCS will verify the 2019 membership status of all those named in the reservation request via our database.
  • If anyone listed in the request is NOT a 2019 VCS member, the University/Vet School to which he or she attends must submit an email to vetcancersociety@yahoo.com stating the status of the occupant(s) as a student, intern or resident before the request for a reservation is officially accepted.
  • A completed credit card authorization form must be completed and submitted online.  The hotel will send this to you once your reservation has been sent to them.
  • Once all information has been turned in and is complete, VCS will email the requestor a notification stating the completion of the process.
  • VCS will then send the request for reservation, along with the completed credit card authorization form, to the Houston Marriott Marquis to make the official reservation.
  • The Houston Marriott Marquis will make the official reservation and send an email confirmation to the requestor. The one night deposit will be billed to the person who completed the credit card authorization.  Once onsite, you may determine how best to share room charges with roommates.
