2014 Spring Conference Hotel Information
PMI is pleased to host the Spring Conference at Charleston Place in Charleston, S.C. Historic Downtown Charleston sits on a peninsula a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the best-preserved cities in the American South.
Charleston Place offers guests a heated salt water pool located on the rooftop of the hotel that boasts a retractable glass roof, health club, business center, concierge and room service. Visit www.charlestonplace.com for more information.
PMI has secured sleeping rooms for a special rate of $249 per night. Check-in time is 4:00 p.m., check-out is noon. Contact the hotel directly at 1-800-831-3490 and ask for the Plumbing Manufacturers International rate of $249.
IMPORTANT NOTE: How you make your reservations impacts PMI... and can also impact you! PMI contracts for the hotel's best conference rate by agreeing to meet a certain number of room nights during the meeting (our "block" of rooms) and guarantees that reservations made under that "block" are protected against cancellation. PMI can continue to negotiate the best conference rates for future meetings based on the success in meeting the room block.
While cheaper rates are sometimes available outside of PMI's block through an Internet service, hotels are not required to honor those reservations. These cheaper Internet-only prices are often cancelled by the hotel when it is faced with an "over sold" situation. You arrive at the hotel, only to learn that your reservation has been released and you have no sleeping accommodations.
When room reservations are made outside of PMI's block, it can result in stiff financial penalties to PMI and, in the end, the individual "savings" costs the organization more!
Airport Transportation Options
Charleston Place does not offer transportation from the airport, but cabs are plentiful to and from Charleston International Airport. One-way cab transportation from the airport to the hotel is about $35.
Please contact a PMI staff member if you have any dietary restrictions or other special needs.
