Hotel Information

The Conference will be held at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa.  The address is One Hotel Circle, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina 29928.  SESWA has contracted with the hotel to set aside sleeping rooms for all conference delegates. We do this to keep conference costs low and to make your planning as easy as possible. If you choose not to stay at the conference hotel, SESWA could be responsible for paying for those unused rooms. 

A block of rooms have been reserved for SESWA delegates for $159/night.  Please note that the Resort Fee has been waived for SESWA delegates.  The online reservations page will reference a Resort Fee as Marriott requires this language, but the Resort Fee will be removed from the reservation at check in. Reserve your room by visiting our online reservations page or by calling 1-888-511-5086.  Be sure to mention that you are with the “Southeast Stormwater Association” to receive the discounted rate. The block of rooms is being held until September 3, 2018 or until the block fills up, whichever comes first.  Book your room early; we anticipate the block selling out quickly!


Self-parking at the hotel is free and valet parking is $18 per day.  Please note that your hotel confirmation may have the regular rates listed so be sure to tell a hotel representative that you are with SESWA to receive the discounted parking rates.
