PAC Conference – Hotel and Travel

13 Oct, 2021

As of February 3, the group room block is officially closed. The Marriott Harbor Beach Resort may still have rooms available, but they may be at higher rates. Please contact the hotel directly at (800-222-6543) or via their website for information on current availability and rates.

WAIT LIST: If you would like to be placed on the wait list for a room at the group rate, please contact Kristin Hanley. Being placed on the waiting list is not a guarantee of a room. We recommend that you make an alternate reservation and note the cancellation policy for your reservation in the event a room does come available at the group rate. Rooms will be granted as cancellations are received. You will be contacted no later than February 18 if a room becomes available. After that date, the wait list will be released.

General Information Regarding 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.

Please beware of SCAMS. The Council does NOT work with any third parties or intermediaries for booking reservations for our group room blocks. You will ALWAYS be instructed to book directly with the hotel for any Public Affairs Council conferences. Though you may receive reminders to book your hotel room and warning/notices as we get closer to our hotel cut-off date, those e-mails will always come from a e-mail address and no one will ever call you soliciting reservations or credit card information.
