NAES or its contractors may be photographing or videotaping sessions and events at Biennial Conference 2014.

General Hotel Information:

The Anaheim Marriott is the site of Biennial Conference 2014. All conference activities will take place there unless otherwise noted. The room rate is $189 per night, plus applicable taxes, for single or double occupancy. There is an additional per person charge of $20 per night for a third and fourth occupant.

Making Your Individual Reservation
The cut-off date for individual reservations is October 18, 2014; after this date the unreserved portion of the room block will be released for general resale. Accommodations requested after this date will be offered on a space- and rate-available basis.

Group of Five (5) or More Reservations Requesting Special Billing
Individuals or groups making five (5) or more reservations and requesting special billing (e.g. check; single credit card for all rooms) must contact Susan Preston at the Anaheim Marriott at (714) 703-3178. These reservations must be fully pre-paid by check or credit card no later than October 1, 2014 and are non-refundable. Any group rooms not pre-paid on or before October 1, 2014 will be returned to the conference room block and made available at the conference rate to individuals/groups attending the conference.

Anaheim Marriott Availability Update - September 18
The Anaheim Marriott is currently sold out on Wednesday night, November 19, but has rooms available for Thursday-Saturday nights, November 20–22, as well as Monday-Tuesday, November 17 and 18.

We are working with the hotel to add rooms to our block (particularly on Wednesday night). This is a fluid situation and we cannot say with certainty if or when this will happen.

We urge you to book at the Anaheim Marriott for Thursday-Saturday nights, November 20–22 and check back with the hotel regularly about availability on Wednesday night. It is possible that rooms could be added today, tomorrow, next week, next month, or right before the conference.

NAES is contractually obliged to pay for unused rooms at the Anaheim Marriott. By staying there Thursday and Friday nights, you can help the association avoid these penalties. Budgeting for penalties in the future means higher future registration rates, something we want to avoid.
