The hotel has reserved a limited number of rooms for attendees until Monday, October 5, or until the block sells out. The special group rate is $191 per night for Palace Tower rooms. Clark County's room tax of 12% will be charged on the above rate.

To reserve a room online, please click here or call the Group Contact Center directly at 866-227-5944.

You may have learned that Caesars Palace is offering special flex rates over the dates of our convention. Please be aware that these rates do not include the $29 per night resort fee, which is added in later. Also, the rooms—Classic Rooms—will be renovated after our convention, so they may not be of the quality that you may expect from Caesars. TLPA's room-block rate, however, does NOT have an additional resort fee and is for rooms in the Palace Tower. We wanted to be sure that you are aware of these differences so you can fully enjoy your stay.

Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.
