PMI 2015 Conference
Attendee Information

Conference Hotel

PMI is pleased to host its 2015 Conference at the Hotel Contessa in San Antonio, TX. The Hotel Contessa is the only four-diamond all-suite hotel on the River Walk. The hotel is a gorgeous retreat for leisure and business guests visiting the most vibrant city in Texas. The ambiance of this 265 all-suite property with heated rooftop pool, full-service spa, gourmet restaurant and modern meeting space is unmatched by any other downtown hotel. The Contessa’s dedicated service team is devoted to making any stay, leisure or business, a memorable experience. Click here for more information.

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" cost the organization more.

PMI has secured sleeping rooms for a special rate of $189 per night at The Hotel Contessa in San Antonio, TX. River view rooms, and double suites are available for an extra fee. Check-in time is 4:00 pm, check-out is 11:00 am.

Contact the hotel directly at 1-210-229-9222 and ask for the Plumbing Manufacturers International rate of $189.

You may book your hotel online here. Please note the hotel handles their room reservations through a separate system from PMI. Attendees will need to register for the hotel and the conference itself separately.

Hotel Registration Closes September 25.

View Menus

Acenar - Lisa Wong (of Rosario’s fame) launches the most innovative contemporary Mexican restaurant and bar on San Antonio’s River Walk. Patrons will enjoy Texas regional Mexican dishes along with tantalizing tastes inspired by the history and heritage of Mexico and Texas. The combination of years of experience in the preparation of quality food “with the right Sazon and artistic panache” that Lisa brings to the table, is the talk of the town.

Boudro’s Texas Bistro – Boudro's is an experience to savor, embracing all the flavor of our regional heritage with a distinctive menu of Texas and southwestern specialties. Relax in the cool, comfortable interior or take a sidewalk table right on San Antonio's renowned River Walk.

Zinc Bistro & Bar - Duck into this bistro tucked into the heart of downtown to grasp the quintessential essence of days when martinis were singular and conversations plural. Nestled within the river bend but above the hubbub of the River Walk, you will find bistro fare with a comfortably upscale Southwestern flair.

Seating is limited per restaurant. Please select a restaurant and we will do our best to accommodate your selection.
