1. Niagara Falls: The Americana Hotel & Spa (and waterpark).
Please call (1-800-263-3508) and ask for “The Non-Conference” rate. The Americana online booking will not take discounts. If you book for Friday and Saturday, you will end up getting about 25% off the going rate. August is peak for hotels in Niagara.
Also, as an attendee and a hotel guest you get up to 4 passes FREE to their amazing indoor waterpark, and 25% off Spa services on site.
There is free day time parking.
The conference hall is on the main floor of the hotel.
As much as The Americana is offering a good conference rate relative to other Niagara hotels at peak season, there are even more affordable hotels and motels, some within walking distance of the conference. Check them out.
August 13, 2016: Conference all day Saturday. There will be a VIP dinner available Friday evening.
