2019 Conference Hotels
SWPA’s ability to secure meeting space depends on its members staying at the conference hotel. This is one way we are able to keep conference rates much lower than other organizations. However, in Houston, we avoided owing tens of thousands of dollars only because of the hard work of our conference manager and other SWPA leadership. If you are attending the conference, please support our organization by staying in one of the conference hotels and keeping your reservation. Finding another room where you can save $10/night and cancelling your hotel room at the last minute results in hundreds of dollars being charged to our organization.
Unlike previous years, the 2019 SWPA Convention will use three separate hotels: the Hotel Albuquerque, the Hotel Chaco, and the Best Western.
Update: Right now, the Hotel Albuquerque, Hotel Chaco, and Best Western Plus - Rio Grande are sold out. If you still need a room, here is what you should do:
- First, call the hotels to check if they have availability; there may be some last minute cancellations.
- Next, if the three conference hotels have no availability, click on this link to find additional nearby hotels. Note there is no conference rate at these hotels.
The Hotel Chaco is a high-end, modern hotel space directly next to the Hotel Albuquerque. This brand new hotel will allow you to take a break from university life and pamper yourself for a weekend. To book, click the green button above. The SWPA conference rate for Hotel Chaco is $169 per night. This rate is valid until March 19, 2019. Self-parking is complimentary. Note. Amenity fee will be removed upon check-in.
The Hotel Albuquerque will serve as the conference meeting space for the 2019 SWPA Convention. The Hotel Albuquerque will also serve SWPA with a conference rate of $129 per night. This rate is valid until March 19, 2019. Self-parking is complimentary.
SWPA has a long history of being student-friendly. We try to make the conference affordable and accessible to students. Thus, for the 2019 convention we have partnered with The Best Western Plus - Rio Grande Inn to offer a low rate for students, while still helping the organization.
The Best Western Plus - Rio Grande Inn at Old Town is directly down the street from the conference hotel space at Hotel Albuquerque. A short, complimentary 3 to 5 minute shuttle ride from the hotel will have you at Hotel Albuquerque in no time at all. Or, if you are in the mood for walking, it is a quick 6 minute walk. The Best Western Plus is providing SWPA with a convention rate of $113 per night (please allow students to book at this hotel). Self-parking is complimentary.
The Best Western Plus - Rio Grande Inn also provides free shuttle trips to and from the airport.
To book, please call the Best Western at (800) 959-4726 or (505) 843-9500 to make reservations under SWPA 2019 Annual Conference.
