SAF, CIF/IFC, and IUFRO have reserved a block of hotel rooms at group rates for delegates attending either event.  Please visit  to view options, pricing, and availability.

You MUST make your reservations through the housing service.  Group rates are not available if you book directly with the hotel.  Prior to September 25, 2014 changes to your reservation must also be made through the housing service.  Thereafter contact the hotel directly.

NOTE:  if you are planning to arrive early or stay later, some dates may show as waitlisted, which is based on the availability calendar for a given hotel – this probably means those dates are not part of our block.  However, most hotels have agreed to honor the group rates 3 days before and 3 days after the events.  Submit your request and if the rooms are available you will receive a confirmation.  If not, you will receive a notice that you need to re-book.
NOTE:  Federal per diem rate rooms at the Marriott Downtown at City Creek are sold out.  If you need a federal per diem rate room, book at another hotel.
