Lodging Information:

We have a limited amount of blocked rooms at two hotels for the AFOS/AAO annual meeting this year in Phoenix. The AFOS meeting begins Monday October 22, 2012 at 12:30 pm. There is no official Sunday Fun Day event scheduled for October 21st. We do have some rooms available beginning Saturday October 20th, if you would like to arrive early and enjoy some of the attractions in the Phoenix area. The Academy meeting ends on Saturday October 27th, and we do have rooms available at both hotels through this time.

*  To secure your room at the downtown Sheraton (our host hotel): AFOS members can call the main reservation number at: 800-3253535 and identify themselves with AFOS or with Armed Forces Optometric Society Group. ($106/night)

*  For the Spring Hills Suites by Marriott , you can call 602-307-9929 and ask for either the "AFOS" or "FSO" group rate ($139/night which includes daily breakfast).

Please be aware we were only allowed a limited amount of rooms per hotel, and they will disappear quickly. Do not procrastinate! These rooms are at half the AAO rate so act promptly.
