Find a Roommate Using This Tool

Saving funds is important for all of us. Make your travel funds stretch farther by finding others who are willing to share a room in Grand Rapids. Use this Google sheet and enter the requested information if you are seeking a roommate. Maybe you have already booked a room and now wish to share the cost. The more who enter their information, the more possibilities you will have to make a connection. It will be up to each individual to reach out to those using the Roommate Finder tool, but we hope this will be a helpful way to faciltate cost savings and new friendships.

*Our hotel rates were negotiated and contracted before COVID interrupted the world.  This is a really good deal, and likely better than any other downtown Grand Rapids hotel rate at similar properties.

Plan your trip

Did you know that booking your housing at hotels outside the official Botany 2024 housing block truly hurts the conference? In order to bring our meeting to exciting conference cities, Botany 2024 is required to book a certain number of hotel rooms. This year in Grand Rapids, we will have FREE meeting space in the Centre if we fill our room block. Free meeting rooms keep the cost of registration at an affordable rate.

The conference works incredibly hard to offer a variety of hotels at rates and services that will provide value to attendees. We vet each hotel to make sure that you arrive to experience a clean, safe property with excellent services and amenities.
