AWCI's Convention: Hotel & Travel

Headquarters Hotel – Hilton Riverside New Orleans

AWCI’s official headquarters hotel is the Hilton Riverside New Orleans, Two Poydras Street. AWCI attendees are extended special group rates ranging from $254 to $294 (single or double) per night. Rates are based on room size, views and additional amenity offerings. Sept. 21 is the cut-off date for room reservations at the group rate or until the hotel is sold out. Reserve your room early online at or call 1-800-HILTONS (800-445-8667) and tell the reservation agent you are with AWCI or Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry, or mention the group code AWI, to receive group rates while they are available.

Ensure hotel cancellations are made at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled arrival date in order to not be charged one night’s room and tax. If you depart earlier than your booked departure date, the hotel will charge a one night room and tax penalty. All guaranteed reservations that fail to arrive on the scheduled arrival date will be considered no-shows and a charge of one night’s room and tax will be posted to the credit card on file.

Room rate includes complimentary basic wireless in-room internet. The Hilton Riverside New Orleans is a non-smoking hotel.


Due to the distance from the Hilton Riverside New Orleans and Hall H of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, busing will be provided. Check on-site for more information. Buses will depart every 15 minutes during specified convention and show hours.

Beware any outside calls, emails or faxes you may receive for “discounted” rates for hotels. AWCI does not use a housing company for room reservations. These calls are often scams that could result in your credit card information being compromised and no hotel room reserved.
