  • icon-building Accommodations

    The Marriott New Orleans Hotel is located at 555 Canal St. in the heart of the French Quarter, 16 miles from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

    NRHA’s discounted rate is $215 plus tax (currently 13% plus $3 per night city occupancy tax). The hotel discount deadline is April 16 or when rooms sell out. NRHA events consistently sell out early so don’t delay in booking your room.

    Fraud alert
    Some NRHA’s members have been contacted by companies claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.
