Hotels and Travel

The 2016 annual meeting will be held at the Hilton Atlanta, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, and the Hyatt Regency Atlanta hotels. Attendees must register to reserve a room at the discounted rates. After preregistering for the meeting, attendees will receive an e-mail acknowledgment of preregistration that will include the attendee's badge number and information on making a hotel reservation. Attendees will be able to make a reservation via the customized web links or toll-free numbers provided. Only annual meeting attendees who have first completed the meeting registration process will be permitted to make hotel reservations at the AHA's meeting rates. The call-in centers and websites may require the attendee's badge number before making a hotel reservation. This process ensures that the deeply discounted AHA meeting rates are reserved for those who support the annual meeting-its attendees and exhibitors.

Do not be misled by outside housing or travel agencies claiming to be the official housing provider for the upcoming AHA Annual Meeting in Atlanta. Please check for an AHA logo on the customized booking sites. Unfortunately unscrupulous providers sometimes claim to provide housing for meetings and conventions when they are in no way affiliated with the sponsoring organization.  Please notify us at if you are contacted by any company claiming to provide housing for the AHA.

Additional Information

The Hilton is the AHA headquarters and will house registration and the Exhibit Hall; the Marriott is co-headquarters and the site of the Job Center. Sessions and events will take place at all three hotels. A pedestrian skybridge connects the second floor of the Hilton Atlanta to the Marquis level of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Another sky bridge connects the Atrium level of the Marriott to the lobby level at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. The hotels were built in the 1960s through 1980s and designed by neo-futurist architect and developer John C. Portman, known for hotels organized around a central atrium with glass elevators.

It is vital that attendees support the AHA housing block. Doing so offsets the considerable costs of organizing and holding the annual meeting. The hotels provide meeting space in return for a promise that we will fill a certain number of sleeping rooms. We must meet that guarantee or risk financial penalties. In addition, filling our room block consistently helps us to secure favorable contracts for future meetings. Booking your room in the housing block helps support the continued success of the meeting.
