Official SLI Hotel - Washington Plaza Hotel 


APhA's Room Block

To assist attendees with hotel costs, APhA has negotiated a room rate and secured a room block at the Washington Plaza Hotel (10 Thomas Circle NW, Washington DC 20005). This rate includes room and sales tax. All hotel reservations must be made through APhA via Registration Form Step 2.

APhA offers a roommate pairing service available to all Institute attendees. Requests to stay with a specific individual can be made. All requested roommates must arrive on the same day. Please note that all requests may not be guaranteed.

Most attendees have a 2-night stay (Friday and Saturday night). Depending on flight schedules, some attendees may have to arrive Thursday and will need a 3-night stay.

Please note that only those individuals who request a room will be allowed to stay at the hotel. Attendees will not be allowed to stay in someone else’s room if they do not select a hotel option.

The hotel determines check-in and check-out policies. Please contact the front desk with special requests.
