2015 Hotel & Travel Discount Information

2015 Hotel & Travel Discount Information


Our Conference host hotels are The Westin Crown Center Hotel and The Sheraton Crown Center Hotel.  They are connected by an enclosed above ground walkover, The Link.   The Westin is the homebase for our business conference, official showcases, private showcases, panels, workshops, and much more.  The Sheraton is the homebase for our Winter Music Camp, Art Gallery, Public Trade Show, Film Festival and much more.

To Book A Room at either hotel, please visit: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/2015FolkAllianceInternational

or call: 800-937-8461 

*** For Westin Music Floor Rooms (private showcase rooms) you must start with our official Private Showcase Agreement.  Once that is completed, you will receive information on reserving your music floor room.

* The hotels will show SOLD OUT as we fill our block.  We will do our best to open as many sleeping rooms as possible at both hotels, but we suggest that you secure your rooms as early as possible.  Both hotels are under the same management team.

These hotels are a 3 minute enclosed walk from each other connected by The Link.  The Link is an enclosed above ground walkover that connects Union Station (Train Station), The Westin, The Sheraton, and the Crown Center.  There will be constant door to door transportation available for those who need help between hotels.

Both hotels were remodeled and received upgrades in 2013.  You will not be disappointed.  

*** We will have an overnight instrument check at The Westin for Sheraton guests that would rather leave their instrument at the Westin.
