Guest Room Reservations

The Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor is offering a block of guest rooms at a conference rate, October 15-20; the nightly rate for single or double occupancy is $199 US plus tax. There is also a limited block of rooms for students for the same nights at the rate of $154 US plus tax.

To make your reservations, go to:

If you need additional assistance, please contact the Hyatt at 877-803-7534 or click here to find contact information by region.

Guest rooms must be reserved by September 16 in order to get the conference rate.

AFS strongly encourages you to contact the Hyatt directly to book in the conference block; if you use other hotel booking agencies, you may be subject to limitations or fees for cancelling or changing your reservation. In addition, your stay in the conference block helps reduce meeting costs, since the meeting room rental fees are waived when the guest room block is mostly filled.

Other Events

Baltimore Comic-Con overlaps with the AFS Annual Meeting; it will take place in the same area October 18-20, 2019, offering more diversions and more pressure on area hotels. Reserve your accommodations early! If you can extend your stay, Comic-Con will offer a 50% discount for Sunday admission for AFS meeting attendees who present their conference name tag at the door. Details to come.

The Baltimore Running Festival (marathon/half-marathon/5K) will run through the Inner Harbor waterfront area, Federal Hill and Fells Point on Saturday, October 18. Plan for delays or alternative routes if you will be driving or walking in the area on Saturday.
