Overflow Hotel Information

The main conference hotel, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, is currently sold out on Tuesday night of the conference due to higher than normal registration numbers. We have secured overflow rooms at the Residence Inn and the Courtyard Marriott at the same group rate of $229 + tax.

Because room inventory is constantly changing, we recommend you first try making reservations at the Philadelphia Marriott and, if your dates aren't available, please reserve a room at the Residence Inn or Courtyard Marriott.
