Because TSPRA's 2017 Annual Conference is being held at the Galveston Convention Center (map), TSPRA has secured room blocks at three nearby hotels, the San Luis Resort, Hilton Galveston Island Resort, and Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach. All three hotels are within walking distance, and the San Luis Resort and Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach will provide scheduled shuttle service to and from the convention center.
All TSPRA conference events will take place in the Convention Center, with the exception of the Monday Meet and Greet Reception (at the Hilton) and the Tuesday Welcome Reception (at the San Luis).
- Hilton Galveston Island Resort - $145 per night (Click here to book.)
- San Luis Resort - $159 per night (Click here to book. Put in the requested dates and promo code TSPRA17.)
- UPDATE: Apparently our rooms at the San Luis are already sold out. Don't panic, as it was a smaller room block than at the other hotels. We'll leave this link up anyway in case people cancel their rooms. TSPRA will negotiate with the hotel to expand this block, but due to the nature of our hotel contract, any expansion will take time.
- Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach - $135 per night (Click here to book. Make sure the dates are correct, then click More Options and enter the Group Code SCH)
TSPRA has secured an overflow block for the 2017 Annual Conference in Galveston of 50 rooms at the Moody Gardens Hotel for $162 per night with the TSPRA17 group code.
Located just a 15-minutes drive from the Galveston Island Convention Center, where conference events are being held, Moody Gardens is one of Galveston's premier properties, set on 242 acres of beachside property that includes the Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid and other attractions.
Click here to book your hotel room online, or call 888-388-8484 between 6 a.m. and midnight, seven days a week, and ask for the Texas School Public Relations Association Block.
The previous hotel blocks at the San Luis Resort, Hilton Galveston Island Resort and Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach are completely full, but these hotels don't notifiy TSPRA when someone cancels their registration, so you can try calling them to check if they have any availability on a given day.
