Reserve your room in GFOA’s official hotel block and you’ll have a great opportunity to network with other conference attendees outside the convention center. GFOA will run a courtesy shuttle between the Courtyard by Marriott - Iberville, Courtyard by Marriott Downtown, JW Marriott, New Orleans Marriott, Renaissance Pere Marquette and Sheraton New Orleans and the convention center during the duration of the conference.  All other hotels in the GFOA official block are within walking distance to the convention center. Specific routes and schedules will be posted on as the information becomes available.

Experient is the Official Housing Provider for GFOA’s 114th Annual Conference. GFOA has worked diligently with the hotels in New Orleans to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Experient will not contact attendees directly to make a reservation. Unaffiliated organizations may solicit reservations at lower rates; however, they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to GFOA.

Reservations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. If available, a hotel will be assigned in order of your preference, or closest to event if not available. You can expect to receive a confirmation within two business days of booking your room reservation. If you have not received your acknowledgement within 10 days of mailing or faxing your housing reservation form, please contact GFOA’s Housing Department at or 1-800-9678852 (International callers 1-847-996-5832).

A major credit card number valid until June 2020 or later or a check for one night’s room and tax (add 16.2% tax) is required to secure a reservation. Credit cards are held as a guarantee only by the Housing Bureau, but may be charged by the hotel after April 23, 2020. A charge of one night’s room and tax will be charged or forfeited on reservations that do not arrive (no-shows) and are not cancelled before 72 hours of arrival. Early departures after check-in are subject to penalty fees set by hotel.

Checks must be received by April 15, 2020, and must be made payable to Experient/GFOA Housing. Reservations indicating a deposit guarantee, for which no check has been submitted, are subject to cancellation. Please base the amount of the check on the rate at the hotel of your first preference. Note: Institutional purchase orders are NOT accepted. Cancellations within 72 hours of arrival will forfeit one night’s room and tax. Refunds to those who guaranteed accommodations with a check deposit will be mailed after the end of the event.

The lowest available room rates at event hotels have been specially negotiated. Other booking channels are continuously monitored to track down rival rates.

Indicate your room type(s) and number of rooms you are requesting per night on the housing reservation form. Enter your hotel choices in order of preference.
