The Francis Marion Hotel is offering the prevailing government per diem (currently $150) rate to all attendees. This rate will be offered based on availability Saturday, September 13 through Thursday, September 18. To make your reservation, call the hotel at (843) 722-0600 or (877) 756-2121. Please reference NSGIC (National States Geographic Information Council) when making your reservation. Be sure to make your reservation before August 14, 2014 in order to receive the NSGIC discounted rate.

PLEASE NOTE: There are only a very limited number of rooms available at the federal government per diem rate for Saturday, September 13th. Once those rooms have been reserved we have arranged for a limited number of rooms at $179. If you plan to arrive in Charleston on Saturday, please make your reservations early. Saturday nights will generally sell out. Once the discounted rooms have been reserved the rate will increase.
