Room Reservation

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 deadline for reservations in the group room block is January 2, 2019.

The Public Affairs Council has obtained a special group rate of $339++ per night plus a $10 per night resort fee at the Casa Marina Key West, a Waldorf Astoria Resort located at 1500 Reynolds Street in Key West, Florida.

Individual reservations may be cancelled without penalty up to 7 days in advance of your arrival date. For cancellations received after this window, the deposit is non-refundable and will be collected as a cancellation fee.
