Do not be misled by outside housing or travel agencies claiming to be the official housing provider for the upcoming AHA Annual Meeting in Washington DC. Only AHA's official housing service, Experient, can book rooms at the AHA's discounted rate. Unfortunately, unscrupulous providers sometimes claim to provide housing for meetings and conventions when they are in no way affiliated with the sponsoring organization. This practice is a scam that attendees should be aware of in order to avoid passing on personal or financial information. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may be illegitimate, not have the rooms to sell, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please notify us at annualmeeting@historians.org if you are contacted by any company claiming to provide housing for the AHA.

Suites

Suite rates range from $195 to $3,000 per night. Only a limited number of suites are available at each rate at each property. Lower-priced suites are likely to sell out first. E-mail AHA@experient-inc.com for the most up-to-date information on suite availability and details about the layout and furnishings. Please note that for suite reservations, the customer service team at Experient will take your information and contact the hotel to confirm the availability of the type of suite you have requested. This process can take some time, so you will not receive an immediate confirmation of your reservation. Experient will contact you as soon as they obtain a final confirmation.

Reservation Details

Cutoff Date

The last day to make or change a reservation through the housing service is Tuesday, December 12, 2017. After that date, remaining inventory in each hotel’s block will be released and rooms will be available at the AHA’s convention rates on a space-available basis. After December 12, all reservations, changes, and cancellations must be made directly with the hotels. If hotel blocks sell out, the AHA will secure additional hotel rooms and post details on the AHA website.

Credit Card Guarantee

All reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card or a deposit of one night's room rate and taxes.

Cancellations

Cancellations must be made 72 hours prior to the scheduled arrival date or hotels will charge a cancellation fee of one night's room and tax.

Changes

Meeting attendees can make and modify (depending on availability) reservations with Experient via the website, phone, or e-mail through 5 p.m. CST on December 12, 2017.
