|2018 World Magnesium Conference Hotel & Travel Information|
It’s been said that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of Hotel Monteleone. This venerable New Orleans hotel sits majestically at the foot of Royal Street and offers valet parking with two garages. Our guests have the best point of departure for all things New Orleans.
Step outside this historic French Quarter hotel to discover shop after shop of fabulous European antiques, estate jewelry, oriental rugs, and art and antiquities from around the world. Quaint New Orleans restaurants and specialty shops line the French Quarter streets. Enjoy New Orleans tourist attractions just steps from our New Orleans hotel, including Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, the French Market, and the Riverwalk, where you can watch the steamboats along the Mississippi River.
Room rate: $239 USD Single/Double
PLEASE NOTE: Travel Visa Requirements… it is recommended that all delegates review the visa requirements for entering the United States and apply for any visa documentation you may need as soon as possible.
All travelers are required to go through immigration clearance upon arrival into the United States.
International visitors can expect at least a probing question or two at the border or airport. Normal baggage and personal possessions should be no problem — but plants, animals, and weapons are among the items that may be prohibited or require additional documents before they’re allowed in.
The International Magnesium Association (IMA) is aware of a scam where housing groups contact association members and exhibitors to "assist" with hotel reservations. All room reservations should be made directly with the hotel.
IMA has sufficient room blocks to accommodate our attendees and exhibitors at the IMA Convention rates. These other groups claim they can get cheaper rates if you book with them. Such companies to avoid, as they are not affiliated with IMA or the upcoming events in New Orleans include:
Should you receive an email or phone call from any of these companies, IMA strongly recommends you DO NOT make your hotel reservation with any third party vendor. If you have already made hotel reservations through an unauthorized vendor, IMA is unable to guarantee the reservation is valid and recommends that you cancel immediately before you incur charges.
There is the potential to be left without a room and to lose money paid in advance if you book through them. A similar scam a few years ago caused several attendees to arrive in San Diego with no hotel room ever booked for them.
