We have blocked off a number of rooms at The Grand Hotel, a sponsor of our 2017 Conference, which is only steps away from the Conference venue and offers plenty of shopping and dining. Be sure to mention FARFA to receive the special Conference rate of $109/night. Unfortunately, they do not have availability for Oct. 13, the night before the pre-conference workshops, but have rooms available Oct. 14-16.
