Please note that due to a construction issue, guest rooms at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass will only be available beginning on Thursday, April 30, 2020 (the first day of FWC). For those arriving before Thursday, WRJ has made arrangements for a block of rooms in the nearby “Wild Horse Pass Hotel.” More details on this are available below; see “Wild Horse Pass Hotel” section.

Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass Hotel:

Rooms are available at this hotel the discounted rate through the WRJ room block for the period of Thursday, April 30, 2020 through Monday, May 4, 2020 (checking out Tuesday). 

The rate for WRJ attendees at the Sheraton Grand is $193/night + tax for a standard room (2 double beds or 1 king bed, up to double occupancy). This rate includes mandatory nightly resort fees and room attendant fees but does not include tax. Any additional guests above two per room will be charged an additional $30 per night.

Attendees are responsible for making their own hotel reservations in WRJ’s discounted room block. After completing your online FWC registration, you will receive the link to make a hotel reservation in your confirmation page and email. All reservations must be made by 5pm MST on April 5, 2020. After this date, we cannot guarantee rooms will be available or the rate which you will be charged.

*Hotel cancellations must be made at least 7 days in advance to avoid a fee. 
**Any hotel reservation cancellations or special requests must be made directly with the hotel.

Check-in is at 4pm and check-out at is at 11am.

Wild Horse Pass Hotel (“pre-conference” hotel):

For those arriving before Thursday, April 30th, you will need to make a separate (second) reservation in the Wild Horse Pass Hotel. This hotel is a 5-minute drive away, and WRJ will arrange group transportation to switch hotels on Thursday to the FWC (Sheraton) hotel (which requires a separate reservation – see information above).

Rooms are available at this hotel at the discounted rate through the WRJ room block for the period of Monday, April 27, 2020 through Monday, May 4, 2020 (checking out Tuesday). 

The rate for WRJ attendees at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel is $149/night + tax for a standard room (2 double beds or 1 king bed). This rate does not include tax.

For those who do not want to switch hotels during their stay and/or want to continue paying the lower nightly rate ($149/nt + tax at this hotel, versus $193/nt + tax at the Sheraton), there is the opportunity to book a room at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel for the entire duration of your stay. There will be 25 rooms with 2 double beds available past the end of FWC (for check-out as late as Tuesday May 5th), for WRJ attendees to book. We will offer shuttle service back and forth between the two hotels throughout FWC, to accommodate those who continue to stay at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel.

Attendees are responsible for making their own hotel reservations in WRJ’s discounted room block.  After completing your online FWC registration, you will receive the link to make a hotel reservation in your confirmation page and email. All reservations must be made by 5pm MST on April 5, 2020. After this date, we cannot guarantee rooms will be available or the rate which you will be charged.

Travel:

Attendees are responsible for arranging their own transportation to/from the hotel for FWC. Please wait to book your travel until after you complete your FWC registration, to ensure you have the most complete details regarding required arrival and departure dates/times for the programs for which you sign up.

For those flying:

  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) is the closest airport, about a 25-30 minute drive away. The hotel does not provide shuttle service.
    • For a taxi, the approximate cost is $40 each way.
    • For a Lyft/Uber/rideshare, the approximate cost is $25-30 each way.
    • Visit the hotel website for more information.
  • Be sure to book a flight that lands earlier than 3:45 pm on Thursday, April 30th to get to the hotel in time to check-in and pick up your registration materials before FWC officially begins at 5:30 pm. If you’re attending the Fundraising Event at 11:45 am on Thursday, land by 10:30 am on Thursday morning to arrive at the hotel in time (however, we strongly encourage you to arrive on Wednesday and spend the night at the hotel).
  • For your departure from FWC, be sure to book a flight that leaves after 3:00 pm on Sunday, May 3rd so that you don’t miss any of the action (FWC ends at 12:00 pm)!
  • Check the FWC Schedule for additional program start/end times. A good rule of thumb is to land at the airport at least 1.5 hours before your program begins, and depart at least 2.5 hours after the final program ends.

  • Overnight Parking costs at the hotel:
    • Self-parking: complimentary
    • Valet parking: $22 daily
