Booking Your Hotel Room for the Annual Meeting


SfAA is pleased to hold its 2023 annual meeting March 28-April 1 in the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.  The Netherland Plaza has a AAA Four Diamond rating. A charter member of the Historic Hotels of America, the Netherland Plaza combines the elegance of one of the world’s grandest hotels with modern conveniences and amenities, including free high-speed internet in guest rooms, meeting rooms, and the lobby.

The Netherland is but a few steps from Fountain Square, the focal point of downtown Cincinnati, with its food trucks and nightly entertainment. A wide choice of places to eat, drink, and shop are also close at hand. It is only a 15-minute drive from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The Netherland offers valet parking, and there are several parking garages within a short walk.

The conference room rate of $156 is a bargain. There is an additional, important reason to stay at the Netherland Plaza: it contributes to the financial health of our society. The SfAA contracts with the conference hotel for a block of rooms. In return, the hotel provides meeting space and other discounts. If we do not meet our room block commitment, SfAA will be forced to pay a significant penalty fee.

To view the link to book your room and other meeting information go to our website:

You may also book your room by calling 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667), or you may call the Netherland Plaza directly at 1-513-421-9100. If you do make your reservation over the phone, be sure to use the rate code SFAA23 to ensure you receive the discounted room rate.

The deadline for booking your room at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza at the discounted rate is March 7, 2023.

On behalf of the SfAA leadership, and the many members and partners involved in planning our 2023 annual meeting, thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you in Cincinnati and online.
