Hotel Accommodations

This year’s event will be hosted at the lovely JW Marriott Desert Ridge hotel in Phoenix, AZ

JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge
5350 E Marriott Dr, Phoenix, AZ 85054
(480) 293-5000

We understand that a major part of attending any event is the cost of accommodations. To help offset this, we have negotiated a discounted rate of $229 exclusively for LTEN guests if booked by May 15, 2018, or until the room block is full — whichever comes first. Reserve your room online here or by calling 1-800-835-6206.

When you book your room in LTEN’s room block, you are supporting LTEN by enabling us to continue to secure low room rates and keep event registration fees down.

BOOK YOUR ROOM

IMPORTANT: LTEN does not use third-party booking services. If you receive calls or email solicitations from services offering to book your room for you, those vendors are not affiliated with LTEN.
