Deadlines are quickly approaching... there are approximately 2.5 weeks until the hotel's room block expires on August 8th. If you're interested in Fest, mark your calendars and make your reservations! :)

16 days until the hotel's room block expires. No guarantees on availability or pricing after August 8th! :eek:

Our block is currently 54% full and there's always a mad last minute rush - don't delay. :)

Hi everybody! I posted a deadlines thread that mentions that the hotel's room block and rate expire on August 8th. I can't stress enough how important it is to reserve your room before this deadline. Not only is the hotel expecting to sell out the weekend of Fest (we're sharing the building with another event or two) but the hotel's website is currently quoting $149 per night for Labor Day weekend.

That's right, you get a $50 per night discount for TDIFest! :cool:

I know - everyone always waits until the last minute. In 2009 we had over 50 registrations in the three days before Fest. It wasn't really a problem because the Hyatt wasn't anywhere close to being sold out and they kept extending the group rate... this year is different.

Just trying to encourage a change of behavior this year so people don't miss out when it's too late!

Yeah, I know.... I only just got my hotel reservation and confirmation number.
3 more room*nights to the total.
Maybe 4 nights if I can get there early enough.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned it or not, but the hotel doesn't charge your credit card until you check out. So... those of you who are on a budget, go ahead and reserve now - pay later! :cool:

Just called the hotel to CONFIRM my last post, which is correct.

There is NO CHARGE to your card to reserve a room. They will do an authorization when you check in (plus incidentals) and charge the full amount due when you check out. You can pay by a different card from the one that you use to reserve your room.

Cliff's notes: NO MONEY DOWN! ;)

We are down to one week till our hotel block expires, which means the price goes up AND the hotel cannot guarantee a room will be available. :eek::eek::eek:

Don't let this deadline slip by!!!

We still haven't met our minimum and I know a lot of folks haven't made reservations yet. Don't procrastinate and miss out on a great deal! (plus we have to make up the difference if we don't make our minimum).

Deadline is in 5 days! (August 8)

Fewer than normal due to this very reason (procrastination).

221 room-nights this year. Attrition starts if we don't hit 199. We ended up with 260 or so in DC.

We'll be in good shape by the 8th, I think - I get my pick-up lists from the hotel on Fridays, but I'm going to have them generate one for me tomorrow or Tuesday.

I also spoke with them late last week about the possibility of getting a one-week extension and they didn't shoot it down, so we'll see. No promises, though.

Hotel reservations are currently down - I hope to have the issue resolved with the hotel by tomorrow morning.

Sorry for the inconvenience! :eek:
