Conference Lodging Update

Due to limited room availability at the InterContinental Hotel in New Orleans, arrangements have been made for a restricted number of rooms at the nearby Hampton Inn, Garden District, which is a short streetcar ride to the InterContinental.

If you need information on how to make reservations, please email:

We also encourage members to look on travel websites for nearby accommodations.

In the event that we fill our room block at the InterContinental Hotel and the Hampton Inn, arrangements have been made for a small block of rooms at the Hilton New Orleans/St. Charles Ave., which is directly across the street from the InterContinental Hotel.

Please note that the weekend of our conference is a home game for the New Orleans Saints, as well as a popular time for many conferences to meet. These conditions affect general hotel room availability, as well as the cost of room rental. Please be assured that SPEP is working hard to bring our members additional lodging options.
