Hotel Reservation DOs & DON'Ts

What to Do

  • Make your hotel reservation through the official TPE/NASPA Housing Bureau to get the discounted hotel rate for event attendees. Making your hotel reservation through the hotel directly or through a central hotel reservation number will not guarantee that you receive the group rate.
  • Make your hotel reservation as soon as possible beginning Monday, October 1, 2018. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. The event room block typically sells out each year.
  • Remember to cancel your hotel reservation if you find it necessary to cancel your event registration. Canceling one does not automatically cancel the other. This will assist you in avoiding any hotel penalty for not canceling.
What Not to Do
  • Do not send purchase order for deposit payments of hotel rooms. Please wait to send all hotel deposits after February 16, 2019 to make sure that your deposit/payment gets allocated correctly.
  • Experient is the Official Housing Provider for both TPE and the NASPA Annual Conference. Do not make hotel reservations with third party companies who contact you directly. TPE/NASPA does not enlist the assistance of third party companies to actively reach out to book hotel rooms.NASPA has worked diligently with the hotels in Los Angeles to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations from any company or housing provider other than Experient is not approved by NASPA. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of, and report any unauthorized solicitation to TPE/NASPA.

By Air

No one airport is consistently cheaper, so it pays to compare prices each time you fly. Do take into consideration any additional cost that may be incurred getting from a more distant airport to your end destination. What you save in airfare, you may end up paying for higher shuttle, taxi, or Uber/Lyft fees.  Here is a guide to Airports of Los Angeles.
