    Taxi transportation to and from the hotel is approximately $20 - $27 for one passenger. Taxi transport to the Amtrak station is approximately $5 (1.5 miles).

    Fee Structure:

    In order to encourage AFPM attendees to use the contracted hotel block at the JW Marriott Austin, Marriott Courtyard Austin, Residence Inn Austin, Hyatt Place Austin Downtown, and Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Austin, a tiered registration fee structure will be in effect. Registrants occupying a hotel room in the AFPM contracted room block will receive a discount and pay a registration fee $200 less than those registrants who choose to stay outside the block or at an alternate hotel. Local commuter registrants, of course, will also receive the discount.

    The discount will no longer be available after the room block closes on April 17th. 

    Register by April 17th to receive Early registration fees and make a reservation in the AFPM block. On April 18th, full registration fees increase by $100 and the $200 housing discount will no longer be available.
