Hotel & Travel

Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld

The Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld will be the host hotel for the 2019 Prescription for Renewal conference. Separate from your conference registration fee, a block of rooms has been set aside specifically for conference attendees to book overnight accommodations. We anticipate the room block to fill up fast! Attendees are strongly encouraged to secure hotel reservations well in advance of the August 29, 2019, cutoff date. After this date, the Renaissance Orlando will release any unreserved rooms back to the general public. Guest room availability and the event's discounted room rate will then only be available at the discretion of the hotel. Please reserve your room online via the link below or by calling to request a room in the Samaritan's Purse PFR 2019 room block. All rooms booked within the PFR Room Block at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld will have the $30 resort fee offered as optional.
