For 2017, our entire CLEAN GULF hotel block is at the Hilton Americas. The Hilton Americas is conveniently attached to the convention center by a 3rd and 4th floor skywalk. While other hotel resellers may contact you offering housing for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with CLEAN GULF. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.
Hotel Reservations at the Hilton Americas
We have secured a limited number of rooms at the group discounted rate of $199.00 + taxes. This rate is only available until November 17, 2017 subject to availability.
Up to five (5) reservations can be booked at one time. For sub blocks of 6 rooms or higher contact Jennifer Soroka, Director of Events, Hilton Americas-Houston at 713-577-6051. Each room held will require 1st night room and tax deposit. The reservation cut-off for sub blocks of 10 rooms or more is October 10th at which time names for each room held are required or the room must be released.
A small block of government-rated rooms are still available but require a 3-night minimum stay. Please utilize your other standard ways of securing government-rated rooms through the GSA website.
BEWARE of Housing Scams – we have received a number of complaints regarding calls many of you are receiving from companies claiming to be the official housing company for Clean Gulf. Those are scams. Plenty of rooms are still available and you will not receive calls concerning this. Do not be sucked in. Typically they require that you pay for the full stay upfront and there's no guarantee you will have a reservation when you show up.

As a standard part of the visa process, the State Department is now requiring that consular officers interview almost every applicant. Some consulates may have a long wait for an interview so applicants should contact the consulate to schedule an interview as early as possible. Furthermore, many visa applications are sent to the State Department in Washington, D.C. to be reviewed by several agencies. Because of the number of visa applications and the need for thorough security reviews, the process can take several months. Therefore, it is advisable for travelers to apply for their visas as early as possible (at least three to four months before the visa is needed). Contact the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy in your country for details on visa application procedures at that post.
