Book a room for less. FGFOA has negotiated a reduced room rate of $189/night, plus parking fees. To take advantage of the reduced room rate, use the web link provided in your email confirmation, which you will receive after remitting payment for your conference registration.

Hotel Policies


Check-in time is after 4:00 p.m. Check-out time is before 12:00 p.m. A credit card is required to hold a reservation. Tax-exempt forms must be shown at check-in, or sent with payment if paying in advance.

Room Reservations

In recent years, many of our registrants have experienced the inconvenience of having to stay outside of the host hotel. Our hotel room block has filled up sooner than expected with people making reservations they may not use, “just in case.” These individuals end up not attending the event and canceling their reservations, but it is too late to help others who have booked into other properties and cannot cancel without a penalty.

As a result, our policy is that all hotel reservations will be made via an online link, which you will receive when the FGFOA has received your registration for the conference. The Diplomat Beach Resort will NOT accept any reservations by phone. Once your registration is received, you will be emailed an attendee-specific link in order to make your room reservation online. 

Please note that the reservation cut-off date is May 7, 2019. It is important that you register for the conference early so that you have plenty of time to make your reservations. Note that the hotel could sell out before the cut-off date, and the FGFOA cannot guarantee rooms will be available at the time you make your reservations, so please register for the conference and make your reservations as soon as possible. 

We apologize in advance for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause, and we sincerely hope that this procedure will enable more of our participants to stay in the host hotel. Please register early.
