IMPORTANT: The only methods of securing our group rate and perks at the hotel are the preferred method of using the blue button at the bottom of our hotel page (THE BUTTON TAKES YOU TO A SPECIAL LINK ON THE HILTON WEBSITE), or by using group code “WWII23” and “World Wings” (group name) when speaking directly to the hotel (833-729-1626) or to Hilton’s reservation department. A 2-night deposit is required – you will see or be told the total, but only 2 nights will be charged up front as the deposit, with the balance due at checkout. By reserving your stay using one of these methods, the nightly resort fee of $35 is waived; you will receive a $30 daily Luna Spa credit; a 15% dinner discount in Kitchen West; free parking, and more. DO NOT USE hotel booking sites such as Priceline, Hotels.com, etc., as you will forfeit ALL benefits. Questions? Click Here to contact the convention team.
