Dear Colleagues,


We have some information with regards to some non-Rosen properties in Orlando. Please share this with your affiliates.


We’ve arranged for an NFB hotel block at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at Seaworld! The Doubletree is less than a mile from the Rosen Centre and has amenities such as flat-screen televisions and microwaves in the rooms, a swimming pool, and several on-property restaurants. To make a reservation, call 800-327-0363 and ask for group code NFB. Depending on your schedule, room rates will be more expensive on certain days. Rates are $89 for the nights of July 7-9. Rates are $159/night for July 3-6 and $179/night for July 10-11.


Additional rooms may be found at a less expensive rate at the Clarion or the Red Roof Inn, although the details won’t be finalized in their reservation system until late on Thursday, May 28. You may call to book a room at the Clarion (800-826-4847) with a king or two queen beds for $110/night. We also have a block of rooms at the Red Roof Inn (407-352-1507 option 4) with a king or two full beds at the rate of $99/night. Both the Clarion and the Red Roof Inn offer a swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, and a microwave. (Some rooms may have a refrigerator.) Both properties are a short walk from the Rosen Centre entrance.


See you in Florida!

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
