The ISNV Symposium and Conference on HIV in the Central Nervous System will be held jointly with the 24th Scientific Conference of the Society on Neuroimmune Pharmacology at the Swissotel Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Located in downtown Chicago, the Swissotel Chicago is award winning, four-diamond, all-glass triangular luxury hotel.

Ideally located at the confluence of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, Swissotel Chicago offers fabulous wrap-around views of the city from Navy Pier to Millennium Park. Its location will place you just steps away from attractions in downtown Chicago and exclusive shopping on The Magnificent Mile.

The hotel offers "generously over-sized" rooms and suites with a full range of amenities, as well as the Penthouse Fitness Centre and Pool with panoramic views from the 42nd floor. In-hotel dining experiences can be found in The Palm Restaurant (fine dining), The Geneva Restaurant (American cuisine), and Amuse (American cuisine and lounge). Of course, the area around the hotel also offers a wide variety of fast and not-so-fast dining options.

An early departure fee of one night (plus tax) will be applied if an attendee departs prior to the confirmed departure date. Requests to retain rooms beyond the designated check-out time should be directed to the Front Desk once the attendee is registered. Should it be possible to extend a late check-out, a late departure charge may be applicable.

Your stay at the hotel will include complimentary use of the fitness center and pool, as well as complimentary in-room high speed internet access.

Individuals who will be paying their own accounts must guarantee their reservations for late arrival in cash or by use of a major credit card.
