NHC Hotels filled up already?
« on: March 06, 2014, 09:26:24 AM »
I don't want to start a panic, but when checking into the hotels next to the Devos center in GR, several people in my club found that they had sold rooms using the AHA/NHC rate and are filled for the dates of the conference already.

I had held off, like many, waiting for the official announcement for hotel information.  I'm hoping that the hotels are filled because they have not released the room blocks yet.

Any idea what's up with hotel options?

regards,
Roger

I can't imagine that's accurate.

We are holding blocks of rooms at several Grand Rapids hotels- they are not sold out yet. Conference registrants who have already paid for their tickets will be receiving information about booking travel via email tomorrow morning.

Has anyone got an email yet this morning regarding the hotels.  I have not, but my email server seems to be acting up as of late.

Nothing in my email box.  It's still "morning" for another 3.5 hours, LOL

I'm just glad we'll be driving in to town.  That little airport may not be able to handle all of us.......

Marriott filled up on Tuesday in the time it took me to make a couple clicks, so I'm at the Amway for the other 4, at least.  Will make other arrangements for that first night or check back later in the spring...

glad that's mostly out of the way, at least.

Was just able to book the JW Marriott with the AHA link for Tues-Sun.  JW's are usually really nice.  You might want to try today now that the rooms are released.

We are at the Amway as well.

That process could use improvement though!

actually that's what I tried.  it showed availability, I clicked it, and it said no availability anymore.  whatever; just glad to be there.  And have to figure out how to manage a Wednesday arrival with an 8:30 am Wednesday Mead exam.   ;)
