While the great majority of events associated with the 2014 Conference and Institute will be housed within the Sacramento Convention Center, selected sessions and events will also be housed within each of our host headquarters hotels: The Hyatt Regency Sacramento and The Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel; both of which are co-located within the same block as the Convention Center. Conference organizers have secured blocks of rooms at each of the Host Hotels, both of which are equally convenient and wonderful places to stay.

The sleeping room rate for either hotel is $164.00 + tax per night for single or double occupancy and does include complimentary in-room internet. The deadline for making your room reservation is June 20th, 2014; however it is highly recommended that reservations be made well in advance of that date as the supply of rooms in the headquarters hotels is limited. Once full, Conference organizers will make every attempt to ensure a supply of sleeping rooms at nearby hotels at equally affordable rates.
