Hilton Anatole Hotel: Art, History, and Science all in One!

The 89th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Aerospace Medical Association is scheduled for May 6-10, 2018, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel (http://www.hiltonanatolehotel.com/) in Dallas, TX. In preparation for next year’s meeting, a small group of AsMA and FAA leaders visited this meeting site in July to ensure we understand the venue layout and begin the process of assigning scientific session rooms, committee meeting rooms, AsMA Wing Hospitality room, registration space, and organizing the exhibit hall spaces.

   The Hilton Anatole Hotel is huge! AsMA’s meeting space will take only a portion of the total meeting space offered by the hotel. So you can expect other conferences will be going on at the same time as our Annual Scientific Meeting. Fortunately, all our meeting spaces are in close proximity to each other so there will not be a need to walk far.
   The Hilton Anatole Hotel offers excellent meeting spaces, a beautiful outside environment [the photo to the left shows the leisure pool], wonderful restaurants, and comfortable sleeping rooms. The hotel also offers an incredible collection of artwork to view throughout the building. Included in the art displays are two large pieces of the Berlin Wall [see the photo below]. Many of the available art pieces are from Asia and include sculptures, paintings, and statues. Pictures of the art pieces available at the Hilton Anatole Hotel can be viewed online at http://www.anatoleart.com/the-top-50-art-treasuresof-the-hilton-anatole/#/home.

Arriving at the Hotel
Upon entering the main entrance of the Hilton Anatole Hotel, you will be greeted by their friendly and efficient Registration Staff. Our team has arranged for a large block of rooms at the Hilton Anatole at the U.S. government per diem rate of $155.00 + taxes/night. The rooms are accessed via a large central atrium with a glass roof.
   The rooms are large, modern, and clean with wonderful décor and linens. The bathrooms are also modern, clean, and very functional. You can view photos of the guest rooms and bathrooms on the Hilton Anatole Hotel website (http://www.hiltonanatolehotel.com/). Complimentary internet in the guest rooms is also offered. Parking at the Hilton Anatole Hotel is at a rate of $22/day for Self-Parking and $29/day for Valet Parking.
   The contracted room block at the Hilton Anatole Hotel was set up 5 years ago. Since signing that contract, attendance at the AsMA Annual Scientific Meetings has grown. As a result, the room block at the Hilton Anatole Hotel is not large enough to accommodate all our attendees. We’ve worked with Walt and Phil Galanty of AIM Meetings & Events on this matter and we’ve recently signed a contract with the Sheraton Suites Market Center Dallas Hotel (2101 North Stemmons Freeway) for another block of guest rooms. The Sheraton Suites Hotel is directly across Market Center Boulevard from the Hilton Anatole Hotel and is a short 8-minute walk (a walking map is available online). The Sheraton Suites Hotel is offering their guest rooms at the same rate of $155.00 + taxes/night as well as complimentary internet access in the guest rooms. The Sheraton Suites Hotel is also offering complimentary parking for our guests. Therefore, we encourage anyone driving to the 89th Annual Scientific Meeting that requires parking to reserve a room at the Sheraton Suites Hotel.
