NIRSA has group rates at two hotels near the Convention Center.

We encourage you to stay with your colleagues and friends at the official Headquarter Hotel, Sheraton Grand Phoenix. There is also a block available at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix.

Multi-room reservations are possible. Details will be included in the hotel registration link.
