Once the rooming block is full or after the cut-off date (whichever comes first), you may not be able to obtain the Public Affairs Council group rate or a room at the conference hotel. Therefore, we recommend that you book a room as early as possible.

Also please note that the room rate is only valid for the nights of the conference (check-in taking place on the first advertised day of the conference and check-out on the final day.) Some hotels have been known to honor the room rate on the few days before and after our events, but please be aware that it is not guaranteed and that the room rate may be different.

The Public Affairs Council has obtained a special group rate of $229++ per night at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town. To make hotel reservations, reserve online or call 703-837-0440 or (800) HILTONS. When calling, make sure to identify yourself as a Public Affairs Council registrant or reference group code: STL to receive the group rate. The deadline for reservations is August 26.

Check-in time is 4:00pm and check-out is at Noon. A credit card number or one night’s deposit is required to secure a room. Cancellations must be received 24 hours prior to arrival or one night’s room and tax will be assessed.

In the event that you checkout prior to your reserved checkout date, an early departure fee of one night’s room and tax will be charged.  To avoid this fee, please advise the hotel of your revised departure date at or before check-in.
