Use this link to make your hotel reservation now or call 954.602.6000 (ask for NAILBA Annual Meeting to ensure NAILBA is credited with your reservation and to possibly get the group rate, if available). If you are making multiple reservations online, you will need to make each reservation individually; however, if you require more than nine (9) rooms, please contact Candy Coons, Meetings Specialist at

PLEASE NOTE: If you make a reservation within the NAILBA room block and are NOT registered for NAILBA 36, your reservation will be removed from the block and the NAILBA room rate will not be applicable. Your room rate will be the Westin Diplomat’s “rack rate,” which is much higher.

Special Needs

The site of the NAILBA 36 Annual Meeting meets all the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special assistance in order to fully participate, please contact NAILBA Headquarters at 703.383.3081 as soon as possible in advance of NAILBA 36 and appropriate arrangements can be made.

Cut-off for hotel reservations is Thursday, October 19, 2017, after which reservations will be accepted on a space and rate available basis.

Scam Alert

Once again this year, a company inaccurately representing itself as our “housing vendor” is contacting individuals in the NAILBA community, soliciting business. Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within the NAILBA block on your behalf.

Currently we are aware of the following companies purporting to be our “housing vendor:”

  • Business Travel Bureau
  • Convention Booking Bureau
  • EHRS 

NAILBA is NOT utilizing the services of any housing service for NAILBA 36. NAILBA nor the Diplomat Beach Resort will never call or email hotel information out to attendees ever. Individuals are ALWAYS required to call the hotel directly for hotel rooms or make a reservation online using the link above.


Transportation to the Hotel

The Diplomat Beach Resort is located just off of Interstate 95 and is easily reached by flying into one of the two major international airports nearby. The Diplomat is 8 miles (a short 15-minute drive) south from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and 35 miles north of Miami International (MIA).

All major domestic and international airlines serve Miami International, whereas most domestic and a few select international carriers fly into Fort Lauderdale. Car rental, limousine, and taxi services can be conveniently arranged at both airports or via the resort’s concierge.

There are numerous transportation options to and from the hotel. Please visit the Diplomat’s transportation page on their website for extensive information based on the airport you select to fly to and from.

Cab fare from:

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport – approximately $40-50 one way.

Miami International Airport –  approximately $60-80 one way.

Parking at the hotel is $30/day for self-park and $39/day for valet (prices subject to change without notice).
