Hotel Information

Most conference sessions will take place at the San Diego Convention Center in downtown San Diego. FCCLA has acquired fourteen (14) hotels all within less than a mile of the convention center.

Per the housing policy that was adopted in 2020, FCCLA no longer assigns state delegations to hotels; therefore, housing reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please make housing reservations after registering for the conference but before making travel arrangements. All room reservations must be made by June 1, 2022, to receive the FCCLA hotel rates.

HOUSING DEADLINES

  • All reservations must be made by June 1, 2022
  • Any requests for rooms after June 1, 2022, cannot be guaranteed the FCCLA conference rate or within the official meeting/conference hotel block

Please note: Attendees are required to stay a minimum of four (4) nights in one of the official FCCLA conference hotels and book their room within the FCCLA hotel block using the official housing reservation website in order to participate in the National Leadership Conference. The link to the housing reservation website will be found in your registration confirmation email after registering for the conference in the FCCLA Portal. Only registered attendees will be able to stay in the FCCLA room blocks of the contracted conference hotels.

Please note:

You are required to make your hotel reservations using the official housing reservation website in order to participate in the National Leadership Conference. The link to the housing reservation website will be found in your registration confirmation email after registering for the conference in the FCCLA Portal. Only registered attendees will be able to stay in the FCCLA room blocks of the contracted conference hotels.


General Housing Policies

FCCLA contracts with hotels in cities where the nationally sponsored meetings are held. Room rates and cost of meeting space are based on anticipated room pick-up.  It is important that FCCLA registered attendees stay within the official meeting/conference hotel block when attending the meeting/conference.

Attendees not staying within the official meeting/conference hotel block will be assessed a $125 fee per registration. This policy will not be implemented once the hotel block is completely sold out. Lack of availability of a preferred room type will not provide an exemption from this policy. Attendees not staying within the official conference hotel block will not be able to run for National Office or participate in Competitive Events.

All National Leadership Conference attendees must register to attend the entire conference and stay within the official meeting/conference hotel block for a required minimum of four (4) nights. In any extenuating circumstance, a written waiver may be submitted via the State Adviser to National FCCLA Staff for consideration.

When making hotel reservations use the online booking link (booking 1 to 25 rooms) or the housing form (booking 10 or more rooms). For the safety and security of all guests and attendees all guests staying in each room must be listed on that room reservation.

Please note: Room reservation cancellations made after May 18, 2022, will incur a non-refundable fee of $450 per room cancelled.


Hotel Assignments

FCCLA no longer assigns state delegations to hotels; therefore, housing reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advisers will have access to select their hotel of choice on the housing reservation site once their registration is submitted.

FCCLA will not make hotel assignments or protect guest rooms for any individual state or school for the 2022 National Leadership Conference.


Hotel Reservations

It is important that you make your hotel reservations before booking travel arrangements. First priority for two-bedded rooms will be given to those with three or four individuals per room.

Reservations should be made using the housing reservation site or the official housing form. The hotel reservation site link will be found in your conference registration confirmation email. The email will be sent to the primary adviser’s email address on file in the Portal.  If you do not receive this email within 48 hours of registering, please notify meetings@fcclainc.org.

For safety and security reasons, all hotel guests must be conference attendees and names must be provided when making your room reservations online or using the official FCCLA housing form. FCCLA verifies hotel housing lists versus the conference registration list frequently prior to the start of the conference. Please ensure that the name(s) you list on the hotel reservation matches the name(s) used on their attendee registration.

Changes and cancellations can be made to your reservation through Orchid Events until June 21, 2022, by selecting the link in your acknowledgment email, by emailing FCCLA@orchid.events, or by calling 1-833-303-4704 (Agents available Mon-Fri 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM MST). Cancellations to room reservations after May 18, 2022, will be charged $450 to the credit card on file per room.

Please note:

  • Telephone reservations will not be accepted and reservations not using the official housing reservation site or form will not be included in the FCCLA hotel block.
  • Reservations made by third-party booking sites (Expedia, Orbitz, Kayak, etc.) or directly with the hotel will not be included in the FCCLA hotel block and will not qualify as staying within the FCCLA housing block.  FCCLA cannot accept responsibility for reservations booked improperly.

FCCLA reserves the right to cancel hotel reservations for individuals not registered to attend the 2022 National Leadership Conference.


Hotel Confirmations

Once your hotel reservations have been submitted, you will receive a hotel acknowledgment email from Orchid Events within 24 hours.  This will serve as your temporary confirmation of your reservation.  If you do not receive this email, please email FCCLA@orchid.events.

Orchid Events will pass all the reservation information to the respective FCCLA hotels one week after the cut-off date (June 1, 2022).  At that point, you will receive an official hotel confirmation email with your official hotel confirmation number. Review your confirmation carefully to ensure all names and dates are correct. Contact the hotel immediately if changes need to occur.

Please be sure to check your spam/junk folders for these emails.


Hotel Cancellations

Cancellations can be made to your reservation through Orchid Events until June 21, 2022, by selecting the link in your acknowledgment email or by emailing FCCLA@orchid.events. After this date, you must work with your confirmed hotel to cancel your reservation.

Cancellations to room reservations after May 18, 2022, will be charged $450 to the credit card on file per room.


Housing Payments

All reservations must be secured with a credit card to guarantee the room(s).  The credit card will not be charged unless you cancel after May 18, 2022, then $450 will be applied. Please read the specific instructions below based on your final payment method.

  • FINAL PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD ON FILE

    If you are using the credit card you used to book the hotel reservation and you will have that credit card in your possession when you check-in, nothing else needs to be done.

  • FINAL PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD NOT IN YOUR POSSESSION

    If you are paying the final payment with a credit card not in your possession, you will need to get further instructions and request a credit card authorization form or link for your confirmed hotel by emailing FCCLA@orchid.events. Complete the form or link with the requested information and return it to your confirmed hotel by June 15, 2022.

    If the hotel does not receive the authorization form prior to June 15, 2022, you will need to provide a valid credit card at check-in.

  • FINAL PAYMENT BY CHECK

    Checks must be mailed to arrive at your confirmed hotel prior to 14 days of your arrival or by June 13, 2022, to allow time for the check to clear. 

    Hotels cannot and will not accept a check as a form of payment upon check-in.

    • If the hotel receives the check less than 14 days of your arrival or after June 13, 2022, then a credit card will need to be provided at check-in.  Once the check clears, you can initiate a request for reimbursement with the hotel to the credit card charged.
    • Please include your reservation confirmation numbers, attendee names, and arrival date with your check payment to ensure the check is applied to the correct reservation(s). Retain a copy of your check for your records.
    • The check should be mailed directly to your confirmed hotel. Housing payments sent to FCCLA will be returned to the sender.
    • If your school requires the hotel to be listed as a vendor, please email FCCLA@orchid.events to get the hotel’s W9.
