You'll enjoy exceptional facilities at this Four Star, Four Diamond hotel. It is steps away from Downtown Disney®, home of the Disney Marketplace, Pleasure Island, and Disney's West Side. What's more, free transportation to Walt Disney World Theme Parks is provided for all guests.
A multitude of activities awaits you at the Hilton. Take a refreshing dip in either of two swimming pools, enjoy a workout at our health club, play golf in our five Walt Disney World championship courses, and savor a variety of cuisines at our seven restaurants and lounges.
Your support in staying at the Hilton helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects you. SIAM guarantees the hotel we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference. SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is then charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. This could increase future registration fees to cover these additional risks.
