STAFDA Travel ALERT: Hotel scammers continue to target STAFDA attendees

Companies continue to offer "STAFDA Convention" hotel rooms at full price. Rooms in STAFDA's real discounted blocks are nearly gone.

Contractor Supply's offices received yet another email today from a company with the subject line: "Stafda Phoenix Nov 7-9.doc." offering hotel rooms for the STAFDA convention.

In the email, the company, listed as Tira International with claimed offices in New Jersey, offers full price, non-discounted rates for several Phoenix area hotels.

STAFDA has negotiated special convention discounts with the follow official event hotels. 

  • Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, 602-262-2500
  • Hyatt Regency, 602-252-1234
  • Wyndham Phoenix, 602-333-0000

However, only the Hyatt and Wyndham still have rooms available in the STAFDA discounted room blocks.

As of Monday, October 18, the Hyatt has seven (7) rooms left in the STAFDA discounted room block. The Wyndham likewise has a few discounted rooms left but only from November 5 to 7, checking out on the 8th.

When you call, be sure to ask for the STAFDA special rate:

  • Hyatt: $217/night single or double; suites from $550 to $1050
  • Wyndham: $195/night single or double; suites from $225 to $696

Once the remaining discounted rooms are reserved, you may still try at each hotel for other accommodations.
