Hotel reservations are now closed. Please visit the Roommate Bulletin Board for housing options.
Please make your reservation within the APS Block. Staying at one of these hotels helps meet APS's financial obligation, and in turn helps to keep registration fees as low as possible. The only official housing bureau for APS March Meeting 2017 is Experient. If you are contacted by an agency other than Experient offering to make your hotel reservations, report them to APS Meetings (Terri Olsen, email@example.com) and/or Experient immediately.
