TEACH 2019 Housing

To get the conference hotel rate, reservations must be made through the AFT TEACH registration and housing system. Do not contact the hotels directly. Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis. The cut-off date for reservations is Friday, June 7. After that date, rooms may not be available at the AFT TEACH rate. No phone reservations will be accepted. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your hotel reservation once it has been approved by AFT TEACH Housing.

All reservations require a deposit of one night's room plus tax, which will be charged on or around June 9. If you wish to pay your deposit by check, please wait until you receive e-mail confirmation that your reservation has been approved. You may then mail a check, made payable to your assigned hotel, to AFT TEACH Housing, 555 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20001.

Hotel reservation changes, additional reservations, substitutions and cancellations may be made online or may be e-mailed to TEACHhousing@aft.org on or before June 7. Hotel reservation changes, substitutions and cancellations made after June 3 must be e-mailed to TEACHhousing@aft.org. Cancellations must be received by AFT at least 72 hours prior to the arrival date in order to avoid being charged by the hotel for one night’s room and tax.

Please note that rooms may not be available before check in time. If you arrive earlier, your luggage may be stored at the Bell Desk until your room is ready.
