To Make Your Hotel Arrangements
To receive the negotiated group rate, you must make your reservations through the APhA Housing Office. Make your reservations early to ensure space at the hotel of your choice. The deadline for guaranteed rates is Monday, March 3. Rates shown do not include the occupancy tax (12.5-14%; varies for each hotel and is subject to change). Parking fees and fitness center charges are also subject to change. Faxed Housing Forms will be accepted when payment is made by a valid credit card.

Guaranteed Rate Deadline: Monday, March 3, 2014

Room Deposit Policy
All reservation requests for rooms and suites require a one night's lodging plus tax per room deposit (varies by hotel). Reservations cannot be processed without a deposit. Your credit card will be charged the deposit amount immediately. The deposit will appear on the hotel room account at check-in. Payment may be made by a major credit card or check drawn on a U.S. bank made payable to the APhA Housing Office. American Express, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover are acceptable for deposits. Credit card charges may not be charged to another card after the initial charge has been processed. Note that all reservations are guaranteed for late arrival. Purchase orders cannot be accepted for deposits.

Cancellations and Changes
All cancellations, date and name changes must be made in writing through the APhA Housing Office and are to be received by March 3. After March 3, the APhA Housing Office will continue to process reservations and changes subject to hotel availability.

Failure to check-in on the scheduled date of arrival will result in the loss of one night's room and tax and cancellation of room. A fee may be assessed for early departures.

Shuttle Service
Shuttle service will operate in a continuous loop between most hotels and the Convention Center (West Hall C) during official APhA2014 activities. See shuttle map for details.

Coat Check
Coat and baggage check services are not available at the Orange County Convention Center. Please ensure that you check bags at your hotel if necessary.

Official Housing Vendor
The official APhA2014 Housing Office (Expovision) requires one night's room and tax deposit without any contracts to secure hotel room reservations. Any other company requiring deposits or full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion, as they falsely imply they are affiliated with the show and attendees arrive with no reservations and no recourse for the payment of rooms.
