Hotel Room Reservations

Due to the high volume of attendees we receive each conference, you may book your room at any of four hotels located near the Mobile Convention Center. Prices vary depending on the hotel, but by staying within the CERF 2019 room block, you'll already be saving significantly! 

Stay Within the CERF Room Block to Support the Continued Success of the Biennial Conference

We highly encourage you to book your hotel room within the CERF room block and take advantage of our special discounts, great amenities, and convenient access to the convention center.

Booking at one of the conference hotels within the room block supports CERF and:

  • Keeps registration rates low
    • CERF’s convention center rental, AV, and food expense is significantly offset due to hotel rebates provided for every night that you stay in our block
    • If we don’t fill a certain number of hotel rooms, CERF must pay penalties to cover the cost of unused rooms
    • If CERF is unable to meet hotel obligations, we won’t have access to large venues in the future. Venues hold dates for larger groups that add more to their city’s economy
    • Anticipated sleeping room pickup is CERF’s strongest tool when negotiating room rates and meeting space for future conferences
  • You can rely on the CERF’s “seal of approval;” CERF hotels have been inspected by CERF staff for quality and safety
  • Networking is easier and enjoyable because CERF-contracted hotels host a large number of CERF participants
  • Gives you peace of mind that you have a reservation at an “official” CERF hotel at the discounted rate and protection in the event the hotel has oversold guest rooms
  • Please note that official CERF hotel rooms are only offered via the web links and phone numbers below. If you receive communication from third parties attempting to sell you rooms for the CERF conference, please inform the CERF Office.
