|2012 Annual Meeting: Hotel Reservations|
We have arranged for a block of rooms at the conference hotel, as well as some additional rooms at the nearby Sheraton New Orleans. Rooms outside of the AFS block, as well as rooms at other hotels, will be increasingly scarce and expensive as the summer progresses, because of two recently scheduled events that will fall at the same time as our meeting--a conference of plastic surgeons and a Madonna concert.
The Monteleone is providing a block of rooms that will accommodate most of our participants who will need to stay in a hotel.
To make Monteleone reservations, call 1-800-217-2033 and mention that you are attending the AFS annual meeting. You can try booking on the web, but the professionals at the reservation desk are more responsive in resolving issues that may arise; seehttps://www.phgsecure.com/IBE/bookingRedirect.ashx?propertyCode=MSYHM&group=AFS23J&arrivalDate=10/23/2012
Students: We have reserved a limited block of rooms for you at a 30% discount from the AFS meeting rate. You must make those room reservations by phone to the number listed above, mentioning the AFS meeting and your student status when you call. You will be asked to show your student ID when you check in to receive these rates.
Note: As of mid-May, the Hotel Monteleone seems to be fully reserved; they may have some availability for some nights, but not for the entire conference. The availability of rooms in the AFS block may change as the season progresses, and peoples' plans become more fixed.
