Hotel Reservations

The AAR & SBL have negotiated elite group rates at 7 hotels, all within walking distance of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. You can only get the discounted group rate by reserving your room during the online registration process. Hotel room rates do not include the average of 16.75% hotel room tax. The single/double/triple/quadruple room designation denotes the number of room occupants, not the number of beds. 

Hotel reservations are available from Thursday, November 16 through Tuesday, November 21, 2023. Registration, Exhibit Hall, and most sessions will be held in the convention center. Some sessions as well as some Other Events will also be held in the Grand Hyatt, Marriott Riverwalk, Marriott Rivercenter, and Hilton Palacio del Rio.

To take advantage of these special discounted fares, make reservations directly through the respective websites listed below. Be sure to include the specific discount code bolded below. Discounts do not apply to certain restricted fares and exclude sale fare inventories and do not apply to the ‘pay now’ reservations.
