IMPORTANCE OF BOOKING WITHIN THE BLOCK: PDA has contracted hotel rooms at discounted rates on your behalf. If our contracted housing obligations are not met, PDA is liable to pay substantial penalty fees to the hotel. This will require us to increase registration rates in the future to cover such penalties. Booking within our block, directly through the Make a Reservation button above, helps us to maintain our strong business value, which is critical to our negotiations with future cities and cost-containment efforts.
