The AHA is happy to announce it will be able to offer free WiFi to annual meeting attendees. Starting mid-day on Thursday, January 2, attendees will be able to access WiFi in the lobby as well as meeting space at the Marriott Wardman Park, Omni Shoreham, and the Washington Hilton using the conference codes posted at each property.

What qualifies as meeting space? Meeting spaces include rooms where sessions are being held, the Exhibit Hall, the Job Center, and connecting hallways. The floors with meeting space are listed on pages 21 through 27 of the print Program.

It is important to note that meeting space does not include sleeping rooms, even if you are holding meetings or interviews in it. However, each hotel offers a loyalty program that offers free access to the Internet, depending on the level of membership. Gold Level and higher members of the Marriott Rewards program have access to free Internet in their sleeping rooms. Members of the Omni Select Guest program have free Internet access in their sleeping rooms the first day they sign up for the program. Hilton Honors Gold level members receive free access to the Internet in their sleeping rooms.
