Important Note About Hotel Reservations
We encourage you to reserve your room through AACRAO’s housing block, which reduces housing penalties for the association and helps us keep meeting expenses low for you. In addition, we advise you to be aware of any unsolicited e-mails from third-party agents regarding hotel rooms. Please be aware that such companies are NOT affiliated with AACRAO and that we discourage you from making your room reservations through such organizations. So please reserve your room through the AACRAO room block to receive the best rates and to ensure the security of your transaction.
