Hotel & Local Area

Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center

Come visit some of the Lone Star State's most famous locations all under one atrium: stroll along the Riverwalk area with festive marketplaces and restaurant; journey through the Rio Grande complete with canyons and covered wagon; and step into the Mission Plaza and remember the Alamo! A recent addition to the Gaylord Texan is Paradise Springs, a 10-acre resort pool with what-else but a western-theme! Relax along the lazy river, splash in the family lagoon that includes waterslides and hot pools, or enjoy the game pavilion offering croquet and Shuffleboard. The Gaylord is a smoke-free facility.

Reservations: A special rate for JAM has been arranged for $209+taxes per night per standard room. Individual reservations must be guaranteed to a major credit card. Cancellations made within 72 hours of arrival date will forfeit one night room & tax. This rate is in effect thru May 6 or while supplies last (whichever comes first). After this date or the block is full (whichever comes first), rooms may be offered on a space-available basis at the prevailing rate.
A reservation link will be provided upon completion of a conference registration. The Gaylord historically sells out of the JAM room block, so please make reservations early to secure your accommodations.

* We have been made aware of a fraudulent hotel booking link that is circulating claiming to have discounts for JAM at other hotels. Jenzabar is not affiliated with this company or offer in anyway and we strongly recommend that JAM attendees consider it spam and do not click on any links within the email. The only official JAM hotel is the Gaylord Texan and reservations should be made by following the link provided upon completing registration. 

Parking: Onsite parking is available for $25 self/$45 valet per day (plus tax). Prices are subject to change without notice.

Airport: The Gaylord Texan is located approximately 5 miles from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The Gaylord does not provide transportation service. Taxi service and ride share services are available from the airport.

Local Area: Historic Grapevine, Texas, centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth, is a go-to destination when visiting North Texas! Step back in time in Historic Downtown Grapevine with its collection of shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Enjoy attractions for the entire family, fabulous shopping opportunities, outstanding dining at over 200 restaurants, winery tasting rooms, a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities, award-winning festivals and events and much more. Grapevine has something for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you at JAM 2024!
