ARELLO has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements. ARELLO will incur costs if the association falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help ARELLO keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and in the ARELLO room block.  Reserving outside the contracted room block may jeopardize ARELLO's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. ARELLO appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue. If you experience difficulties when contacting the hotel, please advise ARELLO HQ. Thank you.

The hotel provides free shuttle service to/from the Salt Lake City airport.
