Coronavirus (COVID-19) Travel Alert: Travel restrictions may apply, and transportation services are subject to change. Therefore, please remember to check before you travel.

Hotel Reservation Instructions

Block Closes Friday, August 18, 2023

APHSA negotiated and secured a hotel room block to make your reservation online. When making reservations by phone, mention APHSA for the discounted rates. These rates are good until Friday, August 18, 2023, or until the room block is full, whichever comes first.


In 2022, we experienced higher-than-normal hotel reservations for our conferences. Therefore, we encourage you to make your reservations as early as possible. Once the block closes, the hotel will accept reservations based on current availability. However, the rate may be higher than the negotiated room rate.

​Reservations can be made directly with the hotel via their online portal – hotel block closes Friday, August 18, 2023!
