Lisbon Marriott Website
Lisbon is the capital and largest city in Portugal, and is one of the oldest cities in the world. Built on seven hills, Castelo, Graça, Monte, Penha de França, S. Pedro de Alcântara, Santa Catarina and Estrela' Lisbon extends in the shape of an amphitheatre along the northern banks of the majestic Tejo River.
Baixa is the city's traditional shopping district where visitors can find dozens of shops offering a wide range of temptations. It is in the heart of the city and stretches from the riverfront to the main avenue (Avenida da Liberdade). It was completely rebuilt after the Great Earthquake of 1755 with streets flanked by uniform, neoclassical buildings.
From St. George's Castle, which stands magnificently on top of one of the seven hills, you can see terra-cotta tiled rooftops, ancient monuments, statues which preside over squares, the old quarters of the Bairro Alto and Alfama where nostalgic fado is played nightly, and the Tagus river flowing under its graceful suspension bridge.
Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunshine. The average temperature in June/July is 81 degrees Fahrenheit, (27 Centigrade), during the day with evening lows in the 60’s. Casual clothing is suggested. We also suggest bringing a sweater or jacket for sessions, as the rooms tend to be on the cool side. For more information on Lisbon, visit Simply Lisbon or Visit Lisbon.
The Lisbon Marriott Hotel is located in the new financial district, which is a short distance from Lisbon Portela Airport. Guestrooms include 1 king or 2 twin beds, an in-room safe, LCD screen TV, voicemail, and air-conditioning. The hotel facilities include a fitness center and pool.

For those attendees who choose to register as “off-site” (this package includes registration and meals only), below is a partial list of hotels available in the Lisbon area. All off-site attendees are responsible for securing and paying for their own lodging arrangements. Please note that FASEB does not have a rate agreement with any of these venues, and will not be supplying shuttle service from these venues to the Lisbon Marriott. The list is provided for informational purposes only.
Child and Family Care Resources
FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC) website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that may assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management may also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns, if available. Please contact FASEB SRC staff with any special needs that they may have.
Please Note: Photographs or Video recording by attendees/speakers during any portion of a FASEB SRC conference is prohibited without prior written permission of the author/presenter, organizers and FASEB SRC staff.
Attendees are encouraged to contact FASEB with any special needs they may have, or contact the hotel directly to address any concerns prior to registering for a conference. Special needs accommodations cannot be guaranteed.
