Spring Conference - Overflow Hotel

We have filled up our conference hotel, the Holiday Inn in Manhattan, and have reserved a block of rooms at an overflow hotel for those that were unable to book at the Holiday Inn.  There will be a shuttle to take you back and forth so you won't miss out on any events!

The overflow hotel is the Parkwood Inn & Suites, 505 S. 17th Street, Manhattan.  They will honor the same $89.95 room rate we had secured at the Holiday Inn.  Reservations can be made via their website, *, or by calling the hotel directly at 785-320-5440 or 877-816-5440.  Please refer to the group name Spring 2015 KS APCO Conference.

*Note:  There have been some issues with people reserving via the website but I just confirmed yesterday (4/14) that there are still rooms available in our block and if you can't book them on the website you should call the hotel directly.  They are working to resolve the issues.  Technology - isn't it grand?!
