Where to Stay
The conference hotel is the historic Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach, FL, a 40-minute ride from Stetson's Deland campus.
To make your reservations, visit this link or call the Plaza's Vacation Planning Center at 866-500-5630 and mention the SLAC WPA conference. The room rate is $139 a night plus tax and fee. Please note: The Daytona Beach Plaza Resort and Spa is a resort hotel. Accordingly, conference participants will be asked to provide a credit card or a cash deposit for incidentals (room service, movies, in-room spa services, pool bar, gift shop, etc). Bigger rooms or suites are also available, but not at the conference rate.
Reservations for the Plaza must be made on or before December 12, 2017. Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
By the way...Florida's spring tourism season starts in January--we encourage you to take advantage of the Plaza's offer to honor room rates for three nights before and after the official conference dates (depending on availability). Nearby Daytona Beach offers nature walks, museums, and outdoor activities of all kinds; Orlando's major attractions (Disney, Universal Studios, Harry Potter's Wizarding World, and many, many more) are within two hours' drive. Visit Kennedy Space Center and the kitsch classic Cocoa Beach Pier! Central Florida is a great place to be during our "cool" season. (Average high temperature during January is a spiffy 68 degrees).
