Take a look at the map to see where Academic Ambassadors has member hotels (see full list below). These are places where I have pre-negotiated discounted rates; they are also terrific hotels in great locations (I've vetted each one personally). In determining which hotel to choose in a given market, I looked at value, location and amenities. While these hotels may not be the cheapest in town, they are now bargains for their level of service.

For work and pleasure, these hotels have handsome and private places to hold meetings, dining facilities, and, in many cases, gyms. They are also very near city attractions (other restaurants, movie theaters, etc.). After a long day on the road, it's important that we have a safe and pleasant home-away-from-home; it's also important to have access to the fun stuff after hours.

Los Angeles, California

With one at the beach, another in Beverly Hills, a third in Westwood Village/UCLA, and a fourth on Wilshire, in the heart of LA's Miracle Mile, I don't think you can lose. Enjoy!

New York City

A very smart septet, indeed. The Mansfield in Midtown has jazz, intimacy and dark good looks. Across the street, the City Club Hotel is a charming refuge with sublime styling and service. The Theater District's Muse is, well, theatrical. Further downtown, 70 Park Avenue is an unusual combination of elegant and hip. While The Roger stunningly combines color and grace. On the Upper West Side, NYLO has emerged as a destination with fine dining and lush comfort. And at the Upper East Side's Franklin Hotel (an understated sibling to the Mansfield) refined elegance prevails.

Need conference space in NYC for a reception/meeting (catered or not)?
Contact me—I have an idea.

When you've found a match, you may want to take a virtual tour of the place. A link to the hotel's own site will give you a good idea of what the hotel is like, where it's located and what services are available to guests.

If you want to take advantage of the discount, the only thing left to do is to call the hotel directly or click through to make a reservation (your travel agent is not eligible for the reduced rates). Just make sure that you, or the person in your office who handles your travel arrangements, tell the hotel's reservation desk that you are an ACADEMIC AMBASSADOR! That's it.
