Important Booking Information

Do make sure to make your reservation through the Passkey to get the special conference hotel rates. Making reservations through the hotel directly, or through a central hotel reservation number, will not guarantee that you receive the NSTA discounted rates.

Do make your hotel reservation as soon as possible. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. For best availability, make your reservation online.

Do not fax your Housing Request Form to NSTA. In particular, some people have sent a Housing Request Form along with their conference registration. This will delay the processing of your hotel reservation.

The hotels do not accept Purchase Orders for deposits or payment of hotel rooms.

If it is necessary that you cancel your reservation, do so as soon as possible to avoid penalty.
