Why Book in the SFB Housing Block? Booking your reservation outside of the SFB block of rooms via Internet travel sites, or by not mentioning to the reservationists that you are with SFB, has a long-term negative impact on the SFB meeting. The number of rooms that SFB can attribute to being reserved by SFB attendees helps us to negotiate better rates with the hotels and the city's meeting facilities. With fewer rooms directly attributable to SFB, registration rates will continue to rise. Additionally, SFB could incur a financial penalty for each room not used by our attendees. We appreciate your supporting SFB by booking hotel rooms within our official block. We’ve negotiated a great rate with the hotel for our attendees ($199 / night!).
