Roommate Matching - DPS roomate

Post by lizethmagana » Fri Aug 11, 2017 4:33 pm

I would like to find a roommate. I will be staying at the Provo Marriott Hotel from the 10/15 to the 10/20. I am a female graduate student and would like to find another graduate student or post-doc. Please message me at lizeth.magana@swri.org if you would like to split the room.

Hi Lizeth,
I'm Paula and I'm interested in sharing the room with you. For the moment, I'm just looking into the options. Can I ask you... do you already have a room booked? Will you be checking out on the 10/20?
Regards,
Paula Granados

Hello Paula Granados,

I am in the process of booking the room. Since I have to schedule through my place of employment, it takes a few days. I have requested to check in on 10/15 and check out on 10/20.

Hi Lizeth,
Would you mind telling me what will the total cost be for those 5 nights? I need to consult the lodging expense with my supervisor.
Regards,
Paula

Paula,

Of course, the total will be around 1025+tax, or approximately 575 per person. Since the room is still in the process of being booked, this is only an estimate.

Lizeth,
Is that with the DPS discount?

The estimated amount was calculated without the DPS discount. When I tried booking a room using the provided code, I received this message:
"Sorry, there are no rooms remaining in the group block for a particular night. Please contact the Hotel directly for assistance."

For this reason I am unsure if we will be able to receive the reduced price as I am unsure of what the travel department at my institution will be able to do about it.
I can provide the exact amount after my request is complete but for now, I decided to overestimate as a precautionary measure.

Hi Lizeth,
A college from my university is also going to the DPS, she already have a room booked and invited me to share the room with her. I apologize, I won't be sharing a room with you. I hope you find someone to share the expense soon.
Regards,
Paula

Katie or Lizeth,

Do either of you still need a roommate? I'm a female grad student looking for someone to share a conference hotel room with. I haven't booked one yet, though.

Hello Hayley,

Sorry for the delayed response! I hadn't checked the forum in awhile. I would be happy to share a room with you. I have a room booked and everything is in order if you are still interested.
