Hotel Information

The JW Marriott hotel room block was released in April of 2017 and is officially booked. However, we have a waitlist with instructions below for booking.  We saw a 20% cancellation rate in 2016 with everyone on the waitlist getting their requested room.  You can book outside the room block, join the waiting list, and cancel your original room should be cleared on the waiting list.  We have also included the new Palm Desert Fairfield Inn in which we have an overflow room block. We will be running shuttles every half hour during Convention between the Fairfield and the JW.
