Important Notice About Making Hotel Reservations

The Academy DOES NOT use a housing company. Reservations must be made directly with the Hyatt Regency New Orleans by using the secure link above or by phoning the Hyatt Regency New Orleans directly. Attendees and exhibitors may be approached with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Lured by highly attractive rates, exhibitors and attendees fall prey to these imposters, which may result in losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs, paying up-front charges, or becoming victim to a bait and switch scheme. These companies are in no way affiliated with the Academy or our official hotel. If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for the Academy 44th Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium or by anyone saying they are the Academy housing provider, please get as much information as you can and then contact the Academy by calling 202-380-3663 or emailing asuriani@oandp.org.

Why Stay at the Conference Hotel?

The Academy has secured a room block for attendees and exhibitors at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. The Hyatt Regency New Orleans is providing discounted rates to Academy Annual Meeting attendees based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying in the official conference hotel. When you book your room with the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, you will receive the following benefits:

When rooms are booked at hotels NOT within our official hotel block, the Academy is exposed to penalties for not fulfilling our room block commitments. By avoiding hotel penalties, the Academy is able to keep registration fees down. Please note that if you choose to book a hotel room outside of the Academy’s official hotel block, the Academy cannot assist you in the event a reservation cannot be located in the hotel’s system or protect your reservation in the event the hotel oversells its room inventory.

Please support the Academy by staying at the official hotel. The increased networking opportunities, quality hotel services, and amenities are well worth it.

Are you an exhibitor and need 10 or more rooms for your staff? Please fill out an Exhibitor Sub-Block Application.
