 Hotels & Reservations


Currently, the ABA housing blocks at the Hilton Nashville Downtown, Hyatt Place Nashville Downtown, Omni Nashville Hotel and Renaissance Nashville Hotel are sold out over the peak dates of the 2018 Regulatory Compliance Conference. A Waitlist option is available, should cancellations occur and rooms become available. 

To add your name to a Waitlist, please contact abahousing@spargoinc.com with your Name, Company, and desired Arrival and Departure dates after you have registered for the conference. Should a room become available, SPARGO will contact you to request credit card information to finalize the booking. Failure to respond within 48 hours with credit card information will result in your forfeiture of the available reservation and SPARGO will go to the next person on the Waitlist. Participants on the Waitlist are not guaranteed rooms in the ABA blocks, so we encourage you to make a reservation at an alternate property in Nashville.

For your convenience, below is a list of hotels that are located in close proximity to the conference. Please note: ABA is not holding rooms at any of these hotels, and cannot guarantee availability or rates for the properties listed below.
