The group room rates start at $269 single/double occupancy per night (plus applicable taxes).
Wait List Instructions: We expect the hotel block to fill-up. If you are unable to secure a room reservation at the Chicago Marriott Downtown, please ask the reservations agent to add you to the hotel waitlist. Attendees will be assigned rooms on a first come, first serve basis as we receive openings within the hotel.
Cancellations: We anticipate selling out our entire room block at the group rate at the Chicago Marriott Downtown. If your plans change and you need to cancel your group rate reservation there, please contact Sarita de la Torre at email@example.com before canceling with the hotel so she may reassign your room to another NMHC member on the hotel's wait list, if needed. Please include the reservation name(s), reservation date(s), and hotel confirmation number in your email. If you simply need to change the name or dates on an existing reservation, please contact the Chicago Marriott Downtown directly at the phone number above. To cancel attendee registrations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Don't get lured in. In the past, sleeping room wholesalers have contacted attendees offering great deals on hotels for the NMHC Student Housing Conference. While it is not illegal for a travel firm or booking agent to solicit potential customers, it can be difficult to determine the legitimacy of offers from these organizations. Those who opt for alternatives to the NMHC negotiated rates may find themselves at risk. NMHC reminds its attendees/exhibitors that we have no affiliation with any of these room brokers.
