As we approach making reservations at the Hyatt Regency at McCormick Place in Chicago we offer a few simple steps to ensure smooth sailing. The hotel staff will be grateful, NDEO will be grateful and most of all you will be the one most satisfied with the speed and efficiency in getting into your room upon arrival. Think strongly about making your reservations NOW to assure that you will be in our room block. NDEO is our special code. The special room rate is $169 plus tax.

On Reservations:
It is BEST that each person makes their own reservation, and if you are planning on having a roommate, make sure the hotel gets their name(s) on your room reservation as well. Then if you and your roommates get to the hotel at different checkin times, their name will be in the system and they will be able to get a room key.

Now if you are in charge of a large group of folks coming to conference and are in charge of making their hotel reservations, PLEASE DO NOT put your name on multiple rooms. This causes great confusion and long lines upon arrival because only your name will be in the system and no on else in your group can checkin.

If you think that registering this way guarantees you will all be together – that won’t happen. What is IMPORTANT is that each room has the names and CC#s for each person assigned to that particular room. If you are a faculty member in charge of many students make a form and keep names and hotel registration numbers and who is rooming with whom. If your school or business is paying then all the rooms can be charged to the one account.
On Cancellations:
You must cancel your room more than 72 hours before you check in date. Cancellations after that time and no shows will result in your credit card being charged for one night's room rate +tax.
If you need to cancel your room after 10/21/14 please contact NDEO at or 301.585.2880 instead of calling the hotel.
