National Grassroots Conference
February 3-6, 2015 – Casa Marina Resort – Key West, Fla.
Due to the incredible response from early registrants, our room block at the Casa Marina Resort is nearly sold out. As of December 19, there were still a limited number of rooms available at the group rate rooms. There are also rooms at higher rates available at the hotel, but the hotel is also expecting to sell out over our conference dates. If you would like to stay at the conference hotel, you must call the hotel directly at (888) 318-4237 or (800) HILTONS to make a reservation. If the conference rate is no longer available, you have the option to book at the going rate or investigate nearby properties (see below for a list.)
You will most likely find better rates at the Casa Marina’s sister property, The Reach Resort. The Reach Resort is located directly across the street from the Casa Marina – less than a 2 minute walk from the conference hotel and the beach. Please call (888) 318-4316 for information on availability and current rates.
Below, we have also provided a list of alternate lodging options in the Key West area.
WAIT LIST: If you would like to be placed on the wait list for a room at the Casa Marina, please contact Jalin Debeuneure at 202.787.5961 or email@example.com. Rooms will be granted as cancellations are received. You will be contacted no later than January 28 if a room becomes available. After that date, the waiting list will be released. We highly recommend that you make a back-up reservation at a nearby hotel as a spot on the wait list is not a guarantee of a hotel room.

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING GROUP ROOM BLOCKS
Once the rooming block is full or after the cut-off date (whichever comes first), you may not be able to obtain the Public Affairs Council group rate or a room at the conference hotel. Therefore, we recommend that you book a room as early as possible.
Also please note that the room rate is only valid for the nights of the conference (check-in taking place on the first advertised day of the conference and check-out on the final day.) Some hotels have been known to honor the room rate on the few days before and after our events, but please be aware that it is not guaranteed and that the room rate may be different.
