Hotel Information

Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas

4150 North MacArthur Boulevard

Irving, TX 75038


We kindly ask that you (and your assistants) not automatically book registrations/rooms for these meetings unless you are reasonably sure that you’ll be able to attend. (Please see "Meeting No Shows" below.)


Room reservations should be made directly with the Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas online or by calling the hotel's reservation department at 972/717-2499. NMHC set aside a block of rooms for meeting attendees with a cut-off date of Friday, April 13.  Our group rates start at $299 per night (plus applicable taxes). Please specify that you will be attending the National Multifamily Housing Council or NMHC Meeting when speaking to the reservations agent. Rooms are limited. 


If you are unable to reserve a room for the night of May 8, please contact Mackenzie Siem, NMHC Meetings Coordinator, at msiem@nmhc.org for rooms we have available at the Four Seasons at a slightly higher rate.

We expect our room block to sell out. If your plans change and you need to cancel your reservation at the Four Seasons, please contact Mackenzie Siem at msiem@nmhc.org before canceling with the hotel so she may reassign your room to another NMHC member on the hotel's wait list, if one exists.  Please check the NMHC website periodically for hotel update information.


Meeting No Shows

NMHC prides itself on bringing the leading apartment industry executives to our membership meetings. As part of your membership benefit, we’ve also made this event free to attend.


Unfortunately, by not charging a fee, we have found that a not insignificant number of members automatically register for the meeting and book hotel rooms without knowing whether their schedules allow them to actually attend. And then a few weeks before the meeting when schedules are more solid, a fair number of these rooms/reservations are canceled.


We understand the desire to book a room and register for the meeting as an “insurance policy” in case you can attend. But we wanted to help you understand why that’s a problem for NMHC. First, it has serious financial consequences for us. We have to guarantee a certain number of rooms for every meeting, meaning we have to pay for them even if no one ends up using them. Last minute cancellations mean empty rooms (as well as food and beverage guarantees) that we can’t fill or alter, but must pay for.


We kindly ask that you (and your assistants) not automatically book registrations/rooms for these meetings unless you are reasonably sure that you’ll be able to attend.


We understand that emergencies come up and cause last minute cancellations, but if we can reduce the number of non-emergency cancellations, it will allow us to save money that we can redirect to other projects that directly support the industry.
