If you are contacted by any company other than SPARGO offering housing in Washington, D.C., please note that these companies are not authorized to represent AGU nor do they have access to officially contracted 2018 AGU Fall Meeting room blocks or rates in Washington D.C. Please beware! These unauthorized companies often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are nonexistent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card. In addition, these companies’ practices make it more difficult for AGU to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penalties. For more information or to report a company, contact the AGU Housing Center.
