Lodging

We have made arrangements for special room rates at the DoubleTree Hotel. A discounted rate of $169/night, plus applicable taxes and fees is available Wednesday, July 24 and Thursday, July 25 and a discounted rate of $139/night, plus applicable taxes and fees for Friday, July 26 through Monday, July 29.

You may make your hotel reservations online. The discount code for rooms is auto-populated in the link. If you are prompted for a code, use AP7. If you call the hotel directly for reservations, be sure you mention you are with APFED in order to get the special rate. Reservations must be booked before July 1, 2019 to secure this discounted rate.

Each hotel room has a mini-refrigerator available for use. In-room microwaves are not available or permitted. We will offer a Hospitality Suite with a microwave and a refrigerator. We are working with the hotel to develop options for special allergy-friendly menu offerings through the on-site restaurant and in-room dining services; more information is forthcoming.

Check in is at 3:00 PM and check out is at 12:00 PM. The hotel features a complimentary business center, a 24-hour gym, and a seasonal outdoor rooftop pool.

Rooms with two beds are available – If the landing page on the link above only shows only options for rooms with a king bed, add your dates of stay and go to the next page for 2-bed options for the group rate. 

We encourage you to book lodging through the link above versus booking through a third party website/service. This will help identify your reservation as part of our group. Additionally, if you book through a third party, we will not be able to assist with correcting any issues that may arise with your reservation.
