Annual Meeting Housing

Hotel Reservations

Housing is available AFTER you complete your conference registration.  Once you complete your registration, your registration summary will include a link to make an online hotel reservation. The link can be accessed either from the online registration summary screen or the email registration confirmation. In the online registration summary screen, select the button “Hotel Reservations” that appears in the upper left side of the screen. In the email confirmation, select the link “Hotel Reservations” in the upper right side of the email. 

Special meeting group rates and exclusive AERA promotions and incentives have been negotiated with hotels near the Annual Meeting events. Register and request housing early as rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please reserve your hotel room through Connections Housing, AERA’s official housing bureau to obtain the special group rates. Do not contact the hotels directly; the hotels will not accept reservations directly and beware of other solicitations for hotel rooms during AERA.  Connections Housing is the ONLY housing provider for AERA. 

For housing assistance or to modify your reservation, please contact AERA Housing Customer Service at aera@connectionshousing.com or call 800-262-9974 or 702-476-6976.

Reservation(s) must be guaranteed with a credit card or check in the amount of one night’s room and tax for each room reserved in order to be processed. The hotel at which you have placed a reservation, not the AERA Housing Bureau, reserves the right to charge a deposit of one night’s room and tax on or after March 24, 2023. Deposits for hotel reservations may be charged to American Express, MasterCard, or VISA, and cards must be valid through June 2023. Purchase orders are not accepted as payment. If you wish to pay by check, you may hold the room with a credit card and then mail a check to Connections Housing/AERA, 950 Scales Road, Bldg. 200, Suwanee, GA 30024. Checks must be received by February 17, 2023. Make checks for housing payable to Connections Housing in U.S. dollars, drawn on a U.S. bank. 

Changes or Cancellations in Hotel Reservation
All changes and cancellations must be made through the AERA Housing Bureau by March 23, 2023. Reservations cancelled within 72 hours of arrival will forfeit all deposits or be charged applicable cancellation fees.

Reservation changes can be made online or by phone, e-mail, or fax. Cancellations must be made in writing to the AERA Housing Bureau by fax at 404-581-5913 or by e-mail to aera@connectionshousing.com

Please be aware that AERA registration and AERA housing are operated by two separate entities. For registration changes or cancellations, please contact the AERA Registration Support Team at registration@aera.net or call 202-238-3200 and select Option 3.
