Why Choose an Official AAAR Hotel?

All AAAR attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to make hotel reservations by utilizing the official AAAR hotels, the Raleigh Marriott City Center and the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel.

The association recognizes that attendees have many options with other area hotels and that you may be looking only at the per-night cost in making your decision. However, we encourage you to take a few minutes to understand the importance of selecting the official AAAR hotel and other factors which go far beyond the per-night rate.

AAAR has a long history of consistently fulfilling the minimum number of room nights to be sold according to the association’s contracts with hotels. However, with the current economic climate and competition from other properties, it gets more difficult each year to ensure that the number of guaranteed contracted sleeping rooms will be used by attendees and exhibitors.

What Does This Mean to You?

When AAAR is able to maintain a consistent history of hotel rooms sold, it helps the association negotiate the lowest hotel rates possible for future AAAR conferences.

AAAR earns credit for each room night utilized by an attendee or exhibitor when the reservation is at an official conference hotel. This credit helps to offset meeting room rental costs, therefore keeping conference fees low.

The AAAR hotel contract protects YOU. Booking within the AAAR hotel block gives AAAR the opportunity, if the need does arise, to assist you with potential hotel problems you may experience while at the conference. When you choose other hotels, AAAR staff has no contacts or leverage to help rectify a problem or inconvenience which you may have encountered.
