Hotel Information

Please support our Forum 79 hotels. Staying at one of the official Forum 79 hotels will not only guarantee you a great room rate but will also help VFS to defray event costs.

Note: VFS is not using a third party to sell or book hotel rooms in West Palm Beach. Please disregard phone calls and email messages from any organization representing itself as the official hotel service for Forum 79.

To receive a discounted Forum 79 room rate, you must confirm reservations with one of the official hotels by April 20, 2023. After April 20, 2023, Forum 79 room reservations will be confirmed on a space-available basis at the prevailing room rate. All reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card. Please be sure to note the cancellation and early check out policy when you book a reservation.

A limited number of guest rooms at US Government per diem rate are available. If you are eligible to receive a federal government per diem rate, please be sure to select this option when you make a reservation. A federal government photo I.D. is required upon check-in to verify eligibility. U.S. Government per diem rate rooms are expected to sell-out well before the hotel reservation deadline. Please book early!
