Hotel and Travel
We hope you are planning to join us for RWA2016!
In order to ensure that registered attendees have access to rooms at RWA’s discounted room rate, only registered attendees will be able to reserve hotel rooms through RWA. This requires the linking of RWA’s membership database to a third-party company that manages RWA’s room block. Any slowness is due to the fact that data must be transferred from RWA’s database to the reservation software. Please be patient.
Note: RWA2016 registrants will receive a hotel reservation link in their event registration confirmation e-mail. Reservations are limited to one per attendee.
For hotel support please call 800-967-8852 (general domestic) or 847-996-5832 (general international).
The RWA2016 room blocks at the Marriott and the Embassy Suites are currently sold out. You can still use the RWA Hotel Portal to be placed on the wait list. We cannot guarantee that you will be placed in a room, however, if a room becomes available, you will be contacted by our housing company, Experient, via email.
