Working in partnership with a number of national and international corporations, the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) enables individual League members to take advantage of discounts at leading hotels and car rental agencies.

The Junior League preferred rate is determined at the beginning of the calendar year and may vary according to season. At certain times during the year, hotels may offer rates that are lower than the Junior League rate. When calling, always inquire about any other ongoing promotions!
Participating hotels are located in Boston, MA; Charleston, SC; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; New York, NY; and Washington, D.C. This list is subject to change.
