  • PAEC's negotiated resort fee is $20/night, which is lower than the advertised $30/night. The hotel has informed me that they can't change the fee stated on their website, but know that our guests' receipts should indicate a $20/night fee.
  • Rooms at the conference rate will be made available three days prior and three days post event, subject to availability of guest rooms at the time of reservation.
  • An early departure fee of one night room cost tax will apply if a group attendee checks out prior to the check-out date confirmed at check-in.
