Know Before You Go! ACR Conference Information

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to ACR 2022 as we gather TOGETHER for the first time in three

years this week in Denver!


Here’s some helpful information for planning your trip:


Conference Hotel 

Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel 

1550 Court Place

Denver, CO

(303) 893-3333


Check-in Time: 4:00 pm

Check-out Time: 11:00 am

Airport Transportation

There is a light rail train from Denver Airport to the Downtown Transit Center and the fare is only

$10.50. After you arrive at the transit center you can then catch a ride on the free Shuttle across from

the transit center. You’ll want to get off at the Court Place stop.


If you choose to take a taxi, there is a set fare of $56 one way from the airport. Taxi drivers are known

to try to charge more than the fare, so confirm the fare before you take a taxi.


Checking into the Hotel

Check in is at 4:00 pm, so if you arrive early, you may have to check your baggage until your room is
ready. If you plan to use a debit card to secure your charges at check in, please note that the hotel will
deduct the entire cost of your stay, plus an additional daily amount to cover anticipated rooms charges,
from your checking account at check in. Once you check out, the remaining amount you may not have
spent will be released, but in some cases, it can take several days for your bank to restore the funds to
your account. It is preferable to use a credit card at check in for this reason.


Meal Service

On Friday and Saturday morning a continental breakfast buffet will be served in the Plaza Exhibit Hall
each morning from 7:00-8:00 am.
For the lunches, you will have a lunch ticket indicating your lunch choice in your registration envelope.
Place your lunch ticket in front of you at the meal so the waiter can know your preference.


Co-Authors Lounges
If you are looking to make connections, share ideas and work with a co-author, we will have Co-Authors
Lounges located in Plaza Court 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 with tables and chairs for your use on Friday and


Free Onsite WiFi
When you’re onsite, you can access our free conference WiFi by selecting the Marriott Bonvoy

Let’s Get Social

conference hashtag: #ACR2022.


There’s an App for That!
In lieu of providing onsite printed programs for all attendees, we have a Conference App which you can

  • First, download the Ex Ordo app onto your phone from the app store.
  • Open Ex Ordo on your phone and search "ACR" in the search bar.

Now you can explore!  View the program, build your schedule, search by presenter, and connect with other attendees.


Please note that when you open the app, all times will be displayed in the time zone where you are
currently located. All events take place in Mountain Daylight Time and will be displayed in that time
when you are onsite in Denver.


We Care About Your Health and Safety
In your conference tote bag you will find an individually wrapped KN95 mask to wear.
Please wear your mask when:
 In Sessions
