Rates and Reservations

AOAC has negotiated a discounted standard single/double guestroom rate of $159.00 USD (plus the resort fee of $15.00 USD) per night plus taxes. The standard single/double government rate for current U.S. Federal Government employees is $96.00 USD (plus the resort fee of $15.00 USD) per night plus taxes. There is very limited availability at this rate, and you must show your Federal Government ID when you check in at the Westin Kierland.

Use the link above to receive the special rate; do not book directly on the Westin Kierland website. To make a reservation by phone from the US or Canada, dial 888-236-2427; if calling from any other country, click here for worldwide telephone reservations. Ask for Reservations and state “AOAC Annual Meeting”.

A credit card is required at the time of booking to guarantee your reservation; however the card will not be charged. Cancellations must be received five days prior to confirmed arrival date to avoid a penalty fee equal to one night’s room and tax. 

Cut-Off Date: August 7, 2022

The AOAC block of rooms at the discounted rate will be available until they are sold out or until the cut-off date of August 7, 2022. After that date, reservations will be accepted on a space- and rate-available basis only. These low rates are not available through the hotel’s website.

Thank You for Booking at the Westin Kierland!

A special “thank you” to our Annual Meeting attendees who have booked their room reservations at the Annual Meeting hotel over the past few years. Because of you, AOAC is able to secure low rates for its room block.

AOAC contracts for a specific number of rooms at competitive nightly rates. Filling a room block is important because it provides a “report card” on the Association to future meeting sites. By establishing a history of consistently filling the room block, AOAC can secure both competitive room rates and larger blocks in subsequent years. Those rooms that go unused by AOAC attendees are charged back to AOAC and cause AOAC to raise registration rates to cover the expenses of hotel rooms left vacant.
