Do not be misled by outside housing or travel agencies claiming to be the official housing provider for the upcoming AHA annual meeting. Only AHA’s official housing service, Maritz, 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 cancelation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please notify us at if you are contacted by any company claiming to provide housing for the AHA.

ADA Access

Attendees requiring ADA accommodations should contact Maritz by phone at 864-641-1557 or by email at The customer service team at Maritz will contact the hotel to determine availability of specific accommodations and contact you with a final confirmation. See our accessibility page for information about ADA access at each property.

Maritz will acknowledge reservations via email. All processing deadlines and cancellation policies are noted on acknowledgements. A reservation ID number will be provided on the acknowledgement. You will not receive a separate confirmation from the hotel. Please note that prior to December 12 you should call Maritz rather than the hotel to confirm or alter your reservation. Reservations will be transferred to the hotels on December 12, 2021. Please do not contact the hotel prior to this as they will not have record of your reservation. Beginning December 15, 2021, please contact the hotel directly for any changes, cancellations or new reservations. Also at this time, your reservation should appear in your loyalty app if your number was provided at the time your reservation was made.


Suites range from $169 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 for the most up-to-date information on suite about suite availability and details about the layout and furnishings. Please note that for suite reservations, the customer service team at Maritz 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. Maritz will contact you as soon as they obtain a final confirmation.

Note that use of suites is subject to the AHA Code of Professional Conduct, and activities in suites are not considered part of the official meeting program. 

Cutoff Date

The last day to make or change reservation through the housing service is Friday, December 10, 2021.

Third-Party Billing
