Hotel Accommodation

The 2019 Symposium will be held at the award-winning Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa, located in the Destin-Miramar Beach area on the Gulf of Mexico. It is a beachfront resort hotel with three pools and two whirlpools. Access is provided to four championship golf courses. The hotel sits on the beachfront of the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, a resort community with over 1300 accommodations, golf courses, tennis facilities, pools, marinas, shopping and dining.

The hotel reservation sites are now open! We have secured a block rooms at heavily discounted rates at the Hilton Sandestin and at adjacent properties on the Sandestin Resort. A block of rooms will be offered at the Hilton on the beachfront for US Government attendees at the per diem rate of $162/night. Room rates for non-Government start at $219/night. These rates are valid April 14-19, 2019. A credit card is required to reserve the room, but the deposit of one night’s stay will not be charged to your credit card until January 31, 2019. We kindly request that you do not reserve a US Government rate room unless you must have the US Government rate to attend the conference, and are almost certain that you will attend.

If you intend to arrive early or stay after the conference, the Hilton will extend your stay at the conference rate for up to two days before and two days after the April 14-19 block. You must call the Hilton Sandestin directly at 1-800-559-1805 to secure the extension at the conference rate, you cannot do it through the Hilton website.
