APA recognizes that you have a number of options when securing hotel accommodations for the annual convention. We would like you to understand that APA has made a major commitment to the city of Washington, D.C., and to the hotel community in order to secure a large block of quality hotel rooms at competitive prices in convenient locations. APA is legally bound to fill these rooms. Not to do so has severe financial implications for APA and affects its negotiations and your costs for future conventions. If you require a hotel in Washington, D.C., we would appreciate it if you would review the list of APA hotels and reserve your room through the APA housing service, Experient.

Hotel reservations should be made directly through the APA’s housing service, Experient, by Internet, phone, or mail beginning on April 15, 2014, at 10 a.m. EDT.

In cooperation with APA, all of the APA hotels have set aside substantial blocks of rooms. These rooms for the convention are available only when reservations are made through Experient. To take advantage of the special APA room rates for the convention, be sure to book your reservations through Experient by July 14, 2014. After July 14, 2014, the official APA blocks will be released, and the hotels may charge significantly higher rates. To ensure having a room in an APA hotel, we strongly recommend that individuals obtain hotel reservations early.

During past conventions, the headquarters hotels have been filled by early May. It is anticipated that the headquarters hotels will also be filled early in Washington, D.C. Housing requests received toward the end of the advance registration period have typically been assigned alternate housing.

Registrants should bear in mind that rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. All rates are per room night and are subject to a 14.5 percent tax. Bedding preferences and other special requests will be assigned by the hotels at check-in. If a hotel reservation form is used, there is no guarantee that persons will obtain a room in the specific hotel requested, in the type of room requested, or at the rate requested. If accommodations are not available at the hotel of your choice, comparable reservations will be made at other contracted hotels. Reserve your hotel room online for immediate confirmation.

Please note that the availability of rooms for those arriving before Aug. 6 may be limited. Therefore, if you are attending preconvention activities, Experient will make every effort to accommodate your needs but cannot guarantee rooms for those with early arrival dates.

Reservations

Reservations can be made through Experient beginning on April 15, 2014. After July 14, 2014, all reservations must be made directly with the hotels. To reserve a room for the APA convention, choose one of the following methods:

  • Internet: Use the interactive website to make your hotel reservation online; or
  • Telephone: Call Experient, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Central time, at 1-800-974-3084 (toll free) or 847-996-5876 (international). Five phone reservations per call; or
  • Print: Download and print an APA Hotel Reservation Form (PDF, 51.5KB) posted on the convention website and:
    • Fax: Send a completed Hotel Reservation Form, using one form per reservation request, to 888-772-1888 (toll free) or 301-694-5124 (international); or
    • Mail: Send a completed Hotel Reservation Form, using one form per reservation request, to Experient, P.O. Box 4088, Frederick, MD 21705.

Experient will send you a confirmation. Review it carefully for accuracy. Room confirmation will be sent only to the primary person requesting the reservation. If you do not receive a confirmation by email, fax, or mail within 14 days of sending your request, please contact Experient or call them at 800-974-3084 or 847-996-5876.

All hotels require a guarantee with each reservation request. Requests received without a credit card number for the required guarantee will not be processed. Please fill out the credit card information in its entirety. Credit cards must be valid through August 2014 to be processed and considered a proper guarantee. Guarantees can be made by providing an American Express, VISA, or MasterCard credit card number on your Hotel Reservation Form.

Persons sharing a room are requested to send in only one Hotel Reservation Form with the names of all of the occupants of the room. By law, there is a limit of four persons to a room, and some hotels will not accept reservations for four persons in a room. Room confirmation will be sent only to the person requesting the reservation.

Changes and cancellations: Changes or cancellations made on or before July 14, 2014, should be made directly with Experient. After July 16, 2014, you must contact your confirmed hotel directly. Deposits are fully refundable for cancellations received prior to 72 hours of arrival. Deposits will be forfeited for cancellations made within 72 hours of scheduled arrival.
