Westin Tampa Waterside

For an individual who is a Federal Government Employee to qualify for Tax Exemption, the payer must provide the front desk with a completed Federal Tax Exemption Form at the time of check-in. Without the form received by the hotel, the purchase will be subject to the Sales and Occupancy taxes for the applicable charges and will be charged accordingly.

For an individual who is a State Government Employee to qualify for Tax Exemption, the payer must provide a copy of the State of Florida Tax Exempt Form at the time of check-in. The Payer must use a method of payment directly from the institution. Personal Credit Cards, personal Debit Cards, personal checks and cash will result in a disqualification from tax exemption eligibility, even if the Tax Exempt Institution is reimbursing the payer. Tax Exemption forms from states other than Florida cannot be accepted.

Hilton Tampa Downtown

Employees of the Federal Government or its agencies are exempt. The individual checking in should be aware whether or not their entity is Federal but if such is not the case, see this list of U.S. Government Departments & Agencies.

  • The Federal Government pays or reimburses the employee
  • Employee does not use the transient accommodation for personal purposes

Driving Directions and Transportation

Alert: Room Reservations

SAE International and our housing partners do not solicit hotel room reservations via telephone, email, or fax. Any claims by any company stating otherwise are not true. Please be sure you are booking directly through the links on this page or directly with a specific property.

Message to Attendees

SAE International has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements. Contracts with the venue include a provision to reduce event costs if SAE meets or exceeds its minimum sleeping room block guarantee. Conversely, event costs will increase if SAE falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help SAE keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and through the reservation process created by SAE. Reserving elsewhere means you are booking outside the contracted room block, jeopardizing SAE's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. SAE appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue.
