Hotel Reservations

Most meeting events will take place in the conference hotel, Marriott City Center.

The nightly conference rate for a room with single or double occupancy is $165 USD; a limited block of rooms is reserved for students at the rate of $135 USD.

To book a room at the Marriott at the regular conference rate, see To reserve rooms at the student rate, please see You can also call 1-877-303-0104 (Marriott toll free reservations) or 1-866-315-9403 (local reservations).

Note: As of 8/14/17, very few rooms are available at the conference rate for Tuesday, 10/17/17. If you want to make a reservation that includes that night, we advise you to call to find out about availability and to book your room; in the worst case, you may have to pay a non-conference rate for Tuesday, while locking in the conference rate for your remaining nights. The online system is not capable of providing different rates for different nights; it will simply say that the conference rate isn't available for your entire stay.

Getting to Minneapolis

Go Minneapolis provides general information for visitors; they have also prepared an AFS Visitors' Guide that provides useful links, including information about transportation from the airport and getting around the Twin Cities.

SuperShuttle is offering a discount on shuttle reservations for AFS attendees traveling from the airport to the Marriott, one-way or round-trip.

Local Guide

The Local Planning Committee has prepared an invaluable Local Guide to the Twin Cities' diverse neighborhoods, with recommendations for getting around and what to do.
