03-18-17: A few rooms have opened up. If you are in need of a room, please email convention@foodaddicts.org with the with the dates you wish to stay and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. 

Canceling a room: Please fill out this room cancellation form

  • PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL YOUR ROOM DIRECTLY THROUGH THE HOTEL. The Convention Planning Committee can reassign your hotel room to another FA member, which will allow us to keep the lower room rate. We are working directly with the hotel, and we will contact you once the transfer has been made. Be assured your room will be canceled by the hotel in plenty of time before the Convention, so there is no need to be concerned about getting charged unnecessarily.

For questions email convention@foodaddicts.org

02-17-17: The hotel has added a limited number of rooms to the FA room block at a rate of $209/night. We are also working to identify neighboring hotels who may be able to accommodate our group. Please continue to check this section of the website for updates. If you have a reservation you no longer require, please email convention@foodaddicts.org 

02-16-17: The Convention Planning Committee is working with the hotel to add more rooms. Please check this section of the website for updates. If you have a reservation you no longer require, please email convention@foodaddicts.org 

11-27-16: Hotel rooms are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. To help us plan for the event and better serve you, we ask that you only book one room for you and those who may be staying in the same room. Booking multiple rooms or room blocks lowers the total number of available rooms allotted for the event and prevents other FA members from booking rooms at the special hotel rate.

When registering, you may select a meal plan for yourself and a plan for a non-FA guest. NOTE: You may also select an EXTRA Sunday boxed lunch for yourself and for a non-FA guest.
