Housing Alert - Hotel Room Scams
Beware of unscrupulous housing agencies who tell you they represent APhA. Expovision is the official hotel reservation office and the only company that can provide you with a guaranteed reservation. No other companies are affiliated in any way with APhA and it is highly recommended that you do not use their services. At past events, exhibitors and attendees have used these companies and lost deposits and did not receive hotel rooms. If you receive solicitations from other companies, forward them to APhA.
Guaranteed Rate Deadline: Monday, February 25
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 Monday, February 25. Rates shown do not include the occupancy tax (15.6% plus $2 per night city assessment, 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.
