Reservation Procedures and Hotel Policies:

All reservations must be made, modified or cancelled on-line using a special link provided by AOPO after you have registered for the meeting. The link will be part of your meeting confirmation email message from AOPO.

Gaylord National is a Marriott hotel so be sure to provide your Marriott Rewards number.

The cut-off date for reservations is Friday, May 25th. The room block may sell out prior to that time after which the Hotel will accept reservations at the prevailing rate based on availability. They do expect to be full over the dates of the Annual Meeting. There are a number of other hotels within walking distance.

All reservations must be accompanied by a first night deposit or guaranteed with a major credit card. Should the guest cancel the reservation, the deposit will be refunded if notice is received at least two days prior to arrival. Early departures will be treated as cancellations and charged for one night’s room and tax, with the exception of proven emergencies.

If AOPO determines that anyone has a reservation at the host hotel at the AOPO rate and is not registered for the meeting, AOPO reserves the right to cancel the reservation and AOPO will attempt to notify room.
