Meeting No Shows and Late Room Reservation Cancellations
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 number of members automatically register for the meeting and book hotel rooms without knowing whether their schedules allow them to actually attend. The result is there are many rooms/reservation cancellations right before the meeting. This has a large financial impact for us.
We kindly ask that you (and your assistant) not automatically book registrations/rooms for these meetings unless you are reasonably sure that you’ll be able to attend.
The Four Seasons Hotel Chicago is approximately 16.5 miles from O'Hare International Airport and approximately 13.5 miles from Chicago Midway International Airport. Those arriving by air have the following alternatives for ground transportation:
- A taxi from O’Hare International Airport will cost approximately $50 each way and takes about 25-30 minutes, depending on traffic. A taxi from Chicago Midway International Airport will cost approximately $35-40 each way and takes about 30-35 minutes.
- For both airports passengers can be picked up on the lower level, outermost curb.
- For attendees who decide to drive to the Four Seasons Chicago, valet parking is $74 per night. Self parking is available in the 900 North Michigan building for $54 per night.
Please contact Sarita de la Torre at email@example.com should you have questions regarding travel or hotel information. Please call the NMHC office at 202/974-2300 for all other questions.
