If you are having trouble booking at the Marriott, it may be because one or more of the nights you are requesting in our room block are filled. Try talking to Marriott reservations at 800-228-9290, - you may need to pay $179 for some nights. At this time, rooms at our $99 rate are unavailable for Friday night 10/3 or later because of the Balloon Fiesta.
More rooms are now available at the Hilton Garden Inn - 500 feet down the street from the Marriott Conference Center. Contact the Hilton at 505-944-0300 and use the group code PSA1. The rate for our room block from Friday, 9/26 through Thursday 10/2 is $99. After the conference, the nights of 10/3 and 10/4, we have rooms in our room block for $169 per night. These rooms are also somewhat limited so you are encouraged to book at this time.
There are others rooms available at this time in Albuquerque despite the Balloon Fiesta. Use travel search sites like Expedia to check for rooms if you are having trouble booking at the above hotels or you just wish to look at more options.
