The Arizona Grand Resort

There are companies obtaining registration lists from public sources-do not respond to these solicitations concerning room reservations.  In order to secure a room at The Arizona Grand you must book through the proper official channel as provided—Through the housing link or calling The Arizona Grand  direct.  Both can be found on this website under Hotel Information or Hotel Reservations.

Housing block “pirates” now routinely “poach” event attendees and exhibitors!
The pirating companies gather group’s contact information from published or online directories. They call attendees leaving the impression that they are “official” housing. They will also frequently cite an imminent sell-out of the block while urging you to secure housing immediately. Another tactic is to offer a room rate that is significantly less than the official rate. Offered rooms may be at the The Arizona Grand or at other properties. Please do not respond to these solicitations.
