Hotel reservations at the conference rates can be made through links on the
APA website. There are
separate links for student members (who qualify for the reduced student rate)
and all other attendees. These links are also included below:
members ($125 per night, plus tax)
All other attendees ($135 per night, plus tax)
Please note: It is
important that those attending the meeting stay in the conference hotel, rather
than at other hotels, and specifically in the block of rooms reserved for APA
meeting attendees (as shown in the above links). The reason for this is simple
economics. The financial viability of the meeting depends on our meeting our
contractual obligations, the most important of which (by far) is that we fill
the number of sleeping rooms specified in the contract. Failure to do so
results in a significant penalty, which, as a non-profit organization, the APA
is ill-equipped to pay.
As usual, reservations for interview suites are handled
separately from the regular hotel room reservations. Suite reservations can be made
online; the website has full details of the amenities in each type of suite.

Reservations by mail and fax will also be accepted. The charge for a reception
table is $50; this includes a table at both evening receptions (December 28 and
29). Reserving a reception table is a great way for departments, committees, societies,
and exhibitors to connect with attendees and gain visibility at the meeting.
The program and executive committees extend a cordial
invitation to all APA members to come and take part in the 2014 Eastern
