Hotel On-line Reservations: Coming Soon!

Conference room rate: $167/night (plus taxes and valet parking). See below for details.

All reservations should be made by September 7th, 2018 in order to receive the group rate $167 (plus taxes and valet parking).  The Blackwell requires a credit card to guarantee your reservation.  After this date, the hotel will release rooms not sold from the group block for general sales and all subsequent hotel reservations will be taken on an availability basis.  Every attempt will be made to accommodate special requests for room types.  This includes location.  However, due to arrival and departure patterns, not all requests may be fulfilled.

Reservations should be made by the designated cutoff date in order to take advantage of our special group rate.  To receive the negotiated group rate, participants should identify themselves as being with the Association for Higher Education Communications Technology Advancement Annual Meeting or AHECTA Annual Meeting when making reservations.  Individuals should cancel reservations prior to 4:00 pm the day before their scheduled arrival to avoid one night’s room and tax charge to the credit card on file.

Reservations: (866) 247-4003  /  (614) 247-4000
Group Name: AHECTA Annual Meeting, or Association for Higher Education Communications Technology Advancement Annual Meeting
Check-in/Check-out: 07 OCT 2018 – 11 OCT 2018
