Make a Reservation by Phone

Reservation by phone has historically resulted in a great deal of frustration for conference attendees due to inconsistent rate quotes. Therefore, we strongly advise you to use the online reservation method (please see above) so that you receive the appropriate group rate.

Help / Support

Important: UAA does not make hotel reservations for attendees. However, if you encounter any problems while trying to make your reservation, contact: with a detailed message about your issue (e.g., dates you are seeking, type of room). The more details you provide us, the better we are able to assist you.

Note About Hotel Rates & Availability

The hotels chosen for UAA conferences must meet certain criteria. The most important requirements are: 1) good quality meeting space, and 2) a highly-accessible downtown location. In order to house the various activities of the conference under one roof, we search for properties that are multi-purpose in nature. These hotels are rarely the least expensive. Our goal is to provide a high-quality meeting space that meets the professional needs of our attendees. UAA enters into a contract each year to provide a specific number of rooms at a discounted rate for that property. By choosing to stay at the conference hotel, you are helping UAA to keep other conference costs down, which allows us to better control registration rates.

Please remember that once the contracted room block is filled, UAA cannot guarantee you a room at the discounted prices. The hotel may choose to provide additional rooms beyond the contracted room block, but this is subject to availability and may result in higher prices.

UAA avoids entering into multiple hotel contracts. Why? Because hotels require a guaranteed minimum revenue level from any group block. UAA cannot make such commitments to more than one property without assuming a high level of financial risk. We understand that some attendees must operate within tight budget parameters. We respect the right of any attendee to seek cheaper rates outside of the conference hotel. Do keep in mind that the conference hotel offers a number of advantages that may not be available at other properties. By staying at the conference hotel you have maximum opportunities for networking, not to mention the convenience of a simple elevator ride to sessions and meal/social events.
