Hotel and Travel



There are dozens of accommodation options in the Fort Myers/Sanibel/Captiva area.

For a list of local hotels, motels, resorts, cottages, and campsites, visit:

While attendees are free to stay wherever they like, as a courtesy we’ve partnered with three local hotels and arranged special discounts for conference participants.

Availability and rates vary from hotel to hotel and are on a first-come, first-served basis. In the past, hotel rooms have filled quickly, so we recommend that you book sooner than later.

The Sundial Resort has provided a link (see below) for people to register online at the group discount rate. There are no online codes for the West Wind Inn or the Holiday Inn, so you have to call them directly to make your reservation. 

When you call, be sure to mention the Sanibel Island Writers Conference to receive the discount rate.

If you call the Holiday Inn, say that you're supposed to receive the "manager's discount."
