Hotel Reservations

Make Your Hotel Arrangements

Guaranteed Rate Deadline: Thursday, February 23

To receive the negotiated group rate, you must make your reservations through the APhA Hotel Reservation Office. Make your reservations early to ensure space at the hotel of your choice. The deadline for guaranteed rates is Thursday, February 23. Rates shown do not include the occupancy tax (16.25%–16.65%, varies by hotel and subject to change). Parking fees are also subject to change. Faxed Hotel Reservation Forms will be accepted when payment is made by a valid credit card.

Room Deposit Policy

All reservation requests for rooms and suites require a one night's lodging plus tax per room deposit (varies by hotel). Reservations cannot be processed without a deposit. Your credit card will be charged the deposit amount immediately. The deposit will appear on the hotel room account at check-in. Payment may be made by a major credit card or check drawn on a U.S. bank made payable to the APhA Hotel Reservation Office. American Express, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover are acceptable for deposits. Credit card charges may not be charged to another card after the initial charge has been processed. Note that all reservations are guaranteed for late arrival. Purchase orders cannot be accepted for deposits.

Cancellations and Changes

All cancellations, date and name changes must be made in writing through the APhA Hotel Reservation Office and are to be received by February 23. After February 23, the APhA Hotel Reservation Office will continue to process reservations and changes subject to hotel availability.

Failure to check-in on the scheduled date of arrival will result in the loss of one night's room and tax and cancellation of room. A fee may be assessed for early departures.

Official Housing Vendor

The official APhA2017 Hotel Reservation Office is Expovision. Any other company requiring deposits or full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion, as they falsely imply they are affiliated with APhA2017 and attendees arrive with no reservations and no recourse for the payment of rooms. 

Ground Transportation

All APhA2017 hotels are within walking distance of the Moscone Convention Center.  For planning purposes, expect a 12-15 minute walk to the Convention Center from the Hilton San Francisco Union Square (HQ hotel) and nearby APhA hotels.

To assist attendees at or near the Hilton, shuttle service is provided from the Hilton. Buses are expected to run every 10-15 minutes during peak hours, and every 30-45 minutes during non-peak hours, as determined by the meeting schedule. A shuttle schedule will be posted in February.

Due to downtown construction, taking the shuttle may not be the fastest option. Bring comfortable walking shoes. Note that APhA also offers hotel options closer to the Convention Center.  See the hotel map for details.

Hotel Loyalty Reward Points

Earn your Hotel Loyalty reward points and receive membership benefits when booking through the official APhA2017 Hotel Reservation Office. Participating hotels and individual loyalty program rules and requirements still apply and are subject to change at any time without notice.
