    In order to make a hotel reservation request, you will need your Meeting Registration Confirmation Code found on your meeting registration confirmation.


    NMHC uses a centralized hotel reservation system to manage hotel reservations for all of our attendees at the NMHC Annual Meeting and the NMHC Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference.

    • Individuals must be registered for the NMHC Annual Meeting and/or Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference before they can reserve a hotel room.
    • Each individual will be limited to one hotel reservation.
    • No blocks of rooms can be reserved.

    Hotel reservation requests will be processed within 24 hours and confirmed within 14 business days. Note: there will be a longer processing period after the initial rush to book rooms in July. All hotel reservations will require a deposit in the amount equal to two nights (a first and last nights') deposit, and all cancellations made after December 8 will entail a forfeiture of this deposit.

    Ground Transportation

    The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria are approximately 18 miles from Orlando International Airport. For those of you arriving by air, you have the following alternatives for ground transportation:

     

    • A taxi from Orlando International Airport will cost about $55 each way and will take approximately 25 minutes, depending on traffic. Taxi service can be found outside of Terminals A & B on the Ground Transportation Level.  
    • An alternative to taxi service is MEARS, a shared ride shuttle service that may make multiple stops.  The cost is $22/one way or $36/round trip per adult. For more information or to make a reservation, call 855/463-2776 or visit the MEARS website.
