Hotels

How will I reserve my hotel room for Conference?

As part of your Conference registration, you’ll have the opportunity to choose one hotel room for your stay. PLEASE gather your friends and decide who will make the room reservation for your group!

You can add, modify or cancel your room reservations up to May 15. If you cancel after that time, you’ll be charged a one night’s room rate plus tax.

Each Conference attendee can book one hotel room in her name. If you have more than two people in one hotel room, it’s possible that your hotel will charge you an extra guest fee. Each hotel is different, and you’ll need to check with your preferred hotel about their guest policy.

Please note, if you call the hotels directly prior to June 10, you’ll be unable to make or verify your reservation. Back to top

What are the Conference hotels? Where are they, and why should I book my room there?

Your hotel selection will be available on your event registration when it goes live in early March. We’ve contracted with various hotels in the area, which guarantees the best rate for you at a particular hotel for Conference. By staying at a Thirty-One Conference hotel, you’ll receive free bus transportation (if needed) to and from your hotel to the facilities used for Conference. You must book your room through the Conference registration site. Back to top
