Hotels and Travel

The 2020 annual meeting will be held at the New York Hilton and Sheraton New York, on January 3-6, 2020. Rates will be $185 single/double at the Hilton and $178 single at the Sheraton. Attendees must reserve a room through our housing service, Experient, to take advantage of the AHA’s discounted hotel rates. More information on housing will be available later this year.

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, 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 cancelation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please notify us at annualmeeting@historians.orgif you are contacted by any company claiming to provide housing for the AHA.

ADA Access:

Attendees requiring ADA accommodations should contact the housing bureau when it opens in the fall. The customer service team at Experient will contact the hotel to determine availability of specific accommodations and contact you with a final confirmation.

Third-Party Billing

If a third party such as your employer will pay for your hotel room and you will not have a credit card with you at check in, contact the housing bureau to arrange billing. You can also reach out to the hotel to request a credit card authorization form.


Please be aware that some hotels place a temporary hold on your credit card when you check in to cover potential incidental charges such as room service and meals charged to your room. This hold is released when you check out. You may request to block all incidental charges to your room instead.
